WOW!!!!! Thats big to me, probably not to anyone thats not a 76ers fan. We basically got rid of him to get Brand, and now we have him back. I he should play, we needed athleticism for our 2nd team on the wing anyway.
Nice move Carney just needs more minutes
I know Rodney (he's from Indianapolis) and it's good to see him return to the team that drafted him. He'll be a nice/athletic backup on the wing... Just don't ask him to create his on offense off the dribble!
He is a spot up shooter or a finisher in trasition. Alright defender cause of long arms.
Good add. Great athlete with an improving all around game. With more minutes he should be a productive guy, maybe as the 6th man.
Good pickup, especially this late in free agency. I think they should have considered making a move for Felton though. I don't think he was on their radar and I know they didn't want to go over the cap, but I think he would have fit in well.
