Filip Petrusev finally joins the Sixers

The expectation of Filip Petrusev is finished. The 23-year-old Serbian pivot, who earlier this month expressed his wish to join Philadelphiatwo years after his Draft (50th position), has finally signed his contract with the Sixers.

It’s the franchise who announced it on Mondaywithout revealing the exact terms of the lease.

Trained in the United States, at Gonzaga between 2018 and 2020, Filip Petrusev then joined KK Mega Basket in Serbia the following season, winning the Adriatic League MVP trophy. After his Draft, he signed up with Efes Istanbul, before taking on more responsibilities this season in the ranks of Red Star in his native Belgrade (10.7 points and 5.2 rebounds on average, with 54% success in shooting including 35% from 3-pointers).

Now, here he is finally an NBA player, with the Sixers (12.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in two Summer League games last week). A team in which the rotation on position 5 will be particularly dense if things remain as they are: Joel Embiid in the five major, Paul Reed coming off the bench and Montrezl Harrell but also Mo Bamba on spare wheels in foul or injury issues.

It is therefore difficult, at first glance, to imagine a role in Philly’s racket for the Serb, even if the latter would like us to remember that he can also play as a strong winger…

“I was in Europe after (Gonzaga’s) college for the past few years. So I was able to do a lot of things there, especially last year in the EuroLeague, which is the highest level after the NBA. And I had a very, very good year playing power forward before playing pivot.he had indeed declared recently.
