Amir Johnson re-signs with the Sixers on a one-year deal

While Markelle Fultz won't travel to Las Vegas later this week to play for the Philadelphia 76ers in this year's summer league, that doesn't mean there aren't a wealth of storylines worth paying attention to.

The 6-foot-5 offensive spark plug posted some of his worst averages while buried in the Timberwolves bench, averaging 10.1 points, 2.3 assists, and 1.2 rebounds in a mere 20.7 minutes per game.

Bringing Redick back was an nearly foregone conclusion once the Sixers missed out on James and George, as Rich wrote about the other day. The 31-year-old started in 18 of his 74 games played.

After the 76ers missed out on the top free agent LeBron James, they are still trying to acquire San Antonio Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard.

The 59-year-old was involved in real estate in the San Fernando Valley at the time of his death. His biological father was a saxophonist named Raymond Hill , who performed with Ike's band.

Regardless of how the free agency dominoes continue to fall, next year's Sixers squad will surely have to rely on at least one of the players on the summer league roster to contribute, maybe even more.

James committed to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday; George announced he'll remain with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

With the entire 76ers roster having another year of experience under its belt, Redick will continue to lead this young team in hope of reaching the top of the National Basketball Association world.
