Former Kentucky basketball player Alex Poythress impressed in his NBA debut with the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night. Poythress, who was with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the D-League, found out on Saturday that Philadelphia was going to call him up. He officially signed with the team on Sunday and immediately went to work.

Poythress had 11 points, three rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes of action for Philadelphia in their 113-105 loss to Toronto.

TJ Beisner and Bradley McKee discuss Poythress’ future as a pro with the 76ers in the NBA.
