The 7-3 center likely will be playing behind Kristaps Porzingis — should he be fully recovered from his ACL tear — and Dwight Powell, meaning his time off the bench will be limited.
Marjanovic, 30, first started last season with the Clippers, but was traded to the 76ers in the latter part of the season. Overall, he averaged 7.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game last season.
While he isn’t exactly quick like today’s NBA game is, his large frame allows him to guard the basket easily and be a threat with offensive rebounds.
Hopefully his departure from longtime friend Tobias Harris (the duo make up the Bobi and Tobi Show) won’t be hindered too much since they will be playing on different teams now.
