Davies, who went undrafted out of BYU, first signed with the Los Angeles Clippers this offseason before getting waived last week. The 6'9 power forward participated in both Las Vegas Summer League and the preseason for the Clippers, failing to make much of an impact.
In five Summer League games, Davies averaged 5.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game. In five preseason games, the 22-year-old averaged 3.4 points and 2.8 rebounds in 11.2 minutes per game.
While going from the Clippers to the Sixers is quite the downgrade, Davies will certainly have a better chance at playing in his hometown of Philadelphia. The Sixers are going to be really bad this year, and new coach Brett Brown might be more willing to give some younger guys a chance to earn some minutes.
