It appears the Sixers will give Anthony "Cat" Barber a chance to help fill their need at point guard.
The Sixers on Thursday night agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the NC State product, according to a report by The Vertical’s Shams Charania.
Barber will get his shot to impress during training camp and preseason after going undrafted in June.

He forwent his senior season with the Wolfpack following a junior campaign in which he averaged 23.5 points per game, seventh most in the country and best in the ACC. The 6-foot-3, 173-pound guard, known for his elite quickness, averaged 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game, while shooting 36.1 percent (43 of 119) from three-point range.
Barber played in four games with the Pelicans during the Samsung NBA Summer League, averaging 6.3 points in 11.8 minutes per game. He missed New Orleans’ final contest with a concussion suffered the game prior.
Barber will join guards T.J. McConnell, Jerryd Bayless and Sergio Rodriguez in camp. Kendall Marshall has a team option for next season. The Sixers also reportedly signed Brandon Paul to a partially guaranteed deal on Monday.
