Sixers signing Belinelli?

Veteran guard Marco Belinelli recently agreed to a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks, making him a free agent. Several reports have linked Belinelli to the Philadelphia 76ers, who could use the depth on the bench.

Well, it seems like it’s a done deal, per CSN Philly.

NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Jessica Camerato confirmed Saturday night that the Sixers intend to sign Belinelli. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that Belinelli had committed to signing with the Sixers upon clearing waivers. Belinelli agreed to a buyout with the Hawks on Friday.

Belinelli has previous played with every NBA team you can think of off the top of your head. He’s averaging 11.4 points per game and can shoot threes.

Brett Brown has previously expressed interest in scoring depth off the bench, presumably after watching nightly 20+ point, second-half leads melt repeatedly this season.
