Sixers bring in Afflalo, Kirkpatrick, others for audition

Free-agent guard Arron Afflalo reportedly attended a recent workout held by the 76ers.

The Philadelphia 76ers recently held a free-agent workout in their search for a veteran guard, according to a report from Shams Charania of Stadium.

Per Charania, the Sixers brought in Arron Afflalo, Brandon Rush and Sean Kilpatrick for an audition, as well as Haywood Highsmith of the G-League’s Delaware Blue Coats.

Afflalo has spent 11 years in the NBA, most recently with the Orlando Magic. He averaged a career-low 3.4 points in 53 games last season.

Rush is a nine-year NBA veteran and last played during the 2016-17, when he averaged 4.2 points in 47 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He signed a 10-day deal with the Portland Trail Blazers last season but did not make an appearance.

Kilpatrick is another journeyman-type who has spent time with the Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets.

The Sixers are seeking help as they await the return of second-year guard Markelle Fultz from an injury to his shoulder area.
