Today the Sixers announced that they’ve reached an agreement on a two-day contract with Bensalem High School senior Kevin Grow.
Grow, 18, scored 14 points including three three-pointers and a buzzer beater in limited action with the Owls this season.
From the press release:
On Tuesday, February 18, before the Sixers host the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:00 p.m., Grow will participate in pregame activities starting at 5:00 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Center, arriving early with his family to see his locker in the Sixers locker room and receive a custom jersey. Grow will then watch pregame warm-ups, take part in the high-five tunnel when players take the court for the game and stand with his team during the National Anthem. During a timeout, Grow and the Bensalem High School basketball team will take the court for a special presentation.
Some highlights of Grow’s short, but impressive, high school career*:
Good stuff. Grow likely won’t see any playing time, but from the looks of it, he would be able to spell Michael Carter-Williams at point or Tony Wroten at shooting guard. He has a quick release and, as demonstrated in the video, great court awareness. Some call him a floor general. He’s well-liked by his teammates and was a fan favorite at Bensalem. Good signing, Sixers.

First good move in 30 years for the Sixers!
Classy move by the Sixers.
Kid will have more time on the court than Bynum.

You’re a fucking asshole
Racism and sexism are okay but the handicapped are the unmentionables…..got it. Didn’t see it in the policy for posting.
Why switch you’re screen name when everybody knows it was you who posted that ignorant comment above making fun of people with mental retardation.
Not funny. Kill yourself. Seriously.
You’re a real tough guy when you are an anonymous jerk off. You wouldn’t have the balls the use the N word but, you throw around retard like it’s funny. I would love to know who you are, you limp dicked little bitch!
Great story and all but does anyone know if this is like a real contract with money against the cap and a player losing a roster spot? Just curious, never heard of a pro team in the middle of a season doing this.
Come grow with us.
its a team helping kids – If they were to sell the Kids Jersey s or Jersey T’s as a fundraiser , it would not only bring allot of much needed funding but awareness – hats off the 76ers
the kid’s a chucker
Did I hear about someone “Doing good in the community”. It’s all about kids. By the way I have a pair of tickets for all 4 days at Augusta. For just $200 which I will use to buy some gloves for the disadvantaged youths of the Delaware Valley. It’s a win-win for everybody. I want to thank Bobby Jones for his kind and generous donation. I don’t know how we do it but imagine two tickets for the year’s first major that are valued at $5000 for just $200. And once again remember it’s all about the kids.
