Sixers plan to sign Rayjon Tucker to two-way contract

Shooting guard Rayjon Tucker drives to the basket as a member of the Wisconsin Herd in a G-League game.

The Philadelphia 76ers intend to sign guard/forward Rayjon Tucker to a two-way contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Tucker, 23, is 6-foot-3 and went undrafted out of Little Rock in 2019. He appeared in 20 games with the Jazz last season, averaging 3.1 points and 1.0 rebounds.

While he’s built like a guard, he is powerful and quick enough to play some small forward, particularly at the G League level. He is expected to join the Delaware Blue Coats for the G League bubble next month in Orlando, Charania added.

Most of Tucker’s time as a rookie came with the Wisconsin Herd of the G League. He was named G League Player of the Month for December.

Tucker is mostly known for his remarkable athleticism.

“He jumps higher than me, that’s for sure,” Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell said last season.

Mitchell has some evidence to back up that claim, as Tucker finished higher of the two in a high school slam dunk competition back in 2015.

Tucker averaged 23.8 points in 16 games with the Herd before signing with the Jazz.

He was signed and waived by both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers during training camp.
