The 76ers have been quiet since the free-agency period began on July 1.

Sam Hinkie, the Sixers general manager, said the team will be more active in August.

“I have been telling agents around the league that we are more likely to [acquire] players then,” he said. “But we are active on a bunch of fronts.

“I don’t have anyone in particular in mind that I would announce now. If I did, someone might sign him before we did.”

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.
