Sixers-Nets: Inside the box score

Evan Turner provided the Sixers fans in attendance at the Wells Fargo Center Friday night with an electrifying finish, scoring a buzzer-beater to lift the Sixers, 121-120, past the Nets, ending the team's seven-game losing streak (see story).

Sixers sign Chasson Randle to second 10-day contract

Sixers sign Chasson Randle to second 10-day contract

It looks like point guard Chasson Randle has earned himself some more time in Philadelphia. 

The Sixers on Friday announced that they signed Randle to a second 10-day contract. 

Randle was first signed by the Sixers on Jan. 9 and has appeared in two games, thanks in large part to a wrist injury that forced starter T.J. McConnell to msis some time and pushed backup point guard Sergio Rodriguez into the starting lineup. 

Randle scored a career-high 10 points in 16 minutes in Monday's win over the Bucks, shooting 50 percent from the field (3 for 6) and beyond the arc (2 for 4), while also adding two rebounds and an assist. 

He played in 19 games this season for the Westchester Knicks of the NBA D-League before signing with the Sixers, leading the team in scoring with 21 points per game, including back-to-back games of 38 and 36 points in December. 

Randle went undrafted in 2015 after a four-year career at Stanford.

Mo Williams was barely a Sixer.

The Sixers on Friday claimed the 34-year-old point guard, then waived him, a league source confirmed to CSNPhilly.com's Jessica Camerato. The Sixers followed it with the re-signing of guard Chasson Randle to a second 10-day contract.

ESPN's Marc Stein first reported the news of the Sixers' claiming Williams.

Per the report, the Sixers made the claim in order to get $2.2 million closer to the salary floor while preventing the Nuggets from doing so after Denver acquired Williams in a trade with the Hawks.

It's been a whirlwind two weeks for Williams, who was traded from the Cavaliers to the Hawks as part of the Kyle Korver deal. Williams was then shipped to the Nuggets, who then waived him.

Now he's been claimed and waived by the Sixers in the same day.

Williams, a veteran of 13 NBA seasons, last played for 2015-16 championship-winning Cleveland, where he played 41 regular-season contests and averaged 8.2 points and 2.4 assists per game.
