Paul Reed, Jaden Springer Praise 76ers Rookie Mike Foster

Hailing from Hillcrest Prep, Arizona, five-star nominee Mike Foster Jr. decided to pursue the professional path straight out of high school. Rather than attend college, Foster brought his talents to the NBA G League and joined Ignite.

After spending a season with the Ignite, Foster was hoping to get drafted in 2022. While he wasn’t drafted, the rookie forward got an opportunity to join the Philadelphia 76ers for training camp in an Exhibit 10 deal.

A successful camp and promising preseason performance allowed Foster to earn a two-way contract with the Sixers. While he had to play with Philadelphia’s G League partner during the 2022-2023 season, Foster could also be called up to the main lineup.
