76ers’ GM on Shayok: ‘Marial is a natural-born scorer’

Philadelphia 76ers have signed Marial Shayok to a two-way contract, the team announced today.

In two games with the 76ers Summer League team, who are currently playing in the Las Vegas Summer League, Shayok is averaging 16.5 ppg, 4.0 rpg, and 1.5 apg.

“Marial is a natural-born scorer who is committed to being a tough defender,” Brand said. “He’s a great person and a talented basketball player who can stretch the floor and knock down the three-point shot. We look forward to growing Marial within our programs in both Philadelphia and Delaware.”

A native of Ottawa, Shayok led Iowa State in scoring as a senior with 18.7 points per game, en route to All-Big 12 First Team honors.

As a Cyclone, he notched career highs in scoring, rebounding (4.9), assists (2.0), field-goal percentage (.496) and three-point percentage (.386), while leading Iowa State to a 23-12 regular season record. Shayok would then carry Iowa State to the Big 12 Tournament title, where he was named MVP, and a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
