Sixers' Craig Brackins Signs With Maccabi Ashdod

Philadelphia 76ers forward Craig Brackins is the latest player to sign overseas during the NBA lockout, as he will join Maccabi Ashdod of Ligat HoAI, the Israeli Basketball Super League. Andy Miller, Brackins' agent, announced the move via his Twitter account.

The Sixers acquired Brackins, a rookie from Iowa State, from the New Orleans Hornets prior to last season. The rangy combo forward made just three appearances for Philadelphia, totaling eight points in 33 minutes; only 17 NBAers logged fewer minutes. He spent most of the season with the NBA D-League's Springfield Armor, averaging 20.1 points in 37.6 minutes per game. Indeed, in April the Sixers called Brackins up from Springfield after the Armor failed to qualify for the D-League playoffs, but he did not get into any games the rest of the season, which strongly suggests he does not figure into Philadelphia's long-term plans.

In three years at Iowa State, Brackins averaged 16 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.
