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.
