07:17 AM ET 09.13 | Yet again, at least for now, Khalif Wyatt may not have to leave the City of Brotherly Love. The undrafted rookie free agent out of Temple agreed to terms Thursday night to play for his hometown team. He will sign a partially guaranteed, mutli-year contract on Friday. The guard will be on the team's roster when it opens the season against the Miami Heat on Oct. 30. But there's a chance Wyatt could spend a portion of this season with the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers NBA Development League affiliate. The Norristown native could fill a void on a Sixers squad in desperate need of a long-range shooter. The 6-foot-4, slimmed-down 205-pounder was a standout one the Sixers' Orlando Pro Summer League team. He averaged a team-best 13.8 points per game, or an analytic-friendly one point per 1.4 minutes in the summer league.

This is all apart of the plan to get 2 top 10 picks. Wyatt is a one dimensional player who is a volume shooter. Bring on Wiggins right?
