    Sixers still tweaking roster ahead of season opener

    The Sixers are still tweaking their roster with the season opener being just days away.

    The team signed Matt Farrell and D.J. Hogg on Wednesday. In corresponding moves, the Sixers released guard/forward Anthony Brown and center Norvel Pelle.  

    Terms of the deals for Farrell and Hogg were not disclosed. However, they were likely Exhibit 10 contracts, which would allow both players to receive any bonuses agreed to if they are cut prior to the season and opt to sign with the Sixers' Gatorade League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats.

    Farrell, a Bridgewater, N.J. native, went undrafted in 2018 after four seasons at Notre Dame. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound guard increased his production each year for Notre Dame. He capped off his career by averaging 16.3 points, 5.5 assists and 2.4 rebounds as a senior.

    Farrell most recently played for the Miami Heat in the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League where he averaged 3.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 16.5 minutes per game.

    Hogg also went undrafted this past June following three seasons at Texas A&M. He recorded career averages of 9.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

    The forward (6-8/215) also played in Las Vegas. Hogg posted points, 1.0 assists and 0.5 rebounds in 13.5 minutes per game for the New Orleans Pelicans.

    Both Farrell and Hogg are absolute long shots to make the Sixers' final roster. These moves are merely new general manager Elton Brand taking care of the franchise's G League affiliate if both players decide to latch on with that club later.
