Welcome to Philly, Georges Niang.
He’ll help the Sixers by providing some needed shooting and spacing off the bench, and can fill the role of that stretch four that they really needed last season. When Tobias Harris went off the floor, they had to stagger and play smaller at power forward and it was noticeably clunky. Those Ben Simmons/Dwight Howard lineups were rough.
Niang seems like a guy who gets it. He knows Philly as a real hard working, clue collar town:

Hell yeah let’s go baby. 42.5% three point shooting off the bench is what the Sixers need. Bombs away.
