Are the 76ers interested in Quincy Douby?

Very much so, according to SportsNet New York.  It reported that the former first-round pick will work out for the Sixers later this month. SportsNet New York also reported that the 29-year-old will work out for the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.

The 6-foot-3 guard out of Rutgers was an NBA failure before becoming a star overseas.

Douby was selected by the Sacramento Kings with the 19th overall pick of the 2006 NBA draft. He averaged 4.1 points, 1.1 rebounds  and just 10.7 minutes over a four-year career with the Kings and Toronto Raptors.
