The 76ers signed Hollis Thompson to a non-guaranteed contract, multiple NBA sources have confirmed.

Thompson is a 6-foot-8 swingman that went undrafted out of Georgetown in 2012. The 22-year-old participated in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s training camp before being at the start of the season. He spent last year with the Thunder’s NBA Development League affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers.  Thompson averaged 8.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 48 games.

The Los Angeles native will be on hand for Friday’s Sixers media day.
