The 76ers released Sampson to create roster space for the acquisition of Joel Anthony, yet the franchise had held out hope of re-signing Sampson. Sampson’s deal with Denver will be non-guaranteed in the second year.
Sampson, a 6-foot-9 forward, has averaged 5.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 121 games for the 76ers from 2014-16. He went undrafted out of St. John’s in 2014.
