This offseason, the Philadelphia 76ers signed two point guards in Jerryd Bayless and Sergio Rodriguez. While Rodriguez was a low-risk one-year signing, the Sixers agreed to a three-year, $27 million pact with Bayless, who has yet to suit up for the team since signing due to an ongoing wrist injury. It looks like Bayless is on the right track to getting healthy though as the Sixers have announced they've assigned the veteran guard to the D-League as part of his rehab.

Bayless, 27, spent last season with the Bucks, averaging 10.8 points and 3.1 assists in just under 29 minutes in 52 games. He shot 42.3 percent from the floor and a career-high 43.7 percent from three point range.
Sergio Rodriguez has been in the starting point guard role thus far and he's fared well in putting his teammates in a good position to score. He's averaging 9.2 points and 7.1 assists per game, which is good for seventh in the NBA. T.J. McConnell is averaging 4.8 assists per game off of the bench.
