Sixers' Craig Brackins Reportedly Signs With Israeli Team

Craig Brackins, a power forward for the Philadelphia 76ers, has signed with Maccabi Ashdod of the the Israeli Super League, reports Sportando. Brackins appeared in just three games as a rookie for Philadelphia in the 2010-11 season, spending much of the campaign with Springfield Armor of the NBA D-League, where he averaged 20 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

Maccabi Ashdod does not compete in Euroleague or Eurocup. Brackins is under contract with the Sixers, which means his deal with Ashdod must include a clause allowing him to return to Philadelphia when the NBA lockout ends. Brackins was the No. 21 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft out of Iowa State, and is due $1.4 million from the Sixers for the 2011-12 season.

Ashdod finished sixth in the Super League last season, and has also signed undrafted free agent Alex Tyus from the University of Florida. Israeli has seen the biggest share of signees from the NBA this offseason, including Jordan Farmar.
