76ers Sign Gani Lawal; Waive Solomon Alabi
Newly acquired Philadelphia 76er’ forward Gani Lawal did not attend the team’s practice here at the Bizkala Arena at the Biblao Exhibition Center. But the post player was a hot topic.
“Gani is another young athletic player who we hope to put in our pipeline,” general manager Sam Hinkie said, “and a guy that has a chance to develop and sees opportunity here, which is why he did what he did and is willing to come here and compete for a spot.”
The 6-foot-9, 234-pounder signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Sixers on Friday. The team was forced to waive Solomon Alabi to make room on the 20-man preseason roster.
