In an effort to bolster the 76ers miserable 3-point shooting abilities, Ed Stefanski has acquired forward Jason Kapono from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for forward Reggie Evans.
“We are very excited to add one of the league’s most prolific three-point shooters in Jason Kapono,” Stefanski said. “We feel that this move addresses our goal of improving our shooting from the perimeter…I want to thank Reggie Evans for his contributions to the team and we wish him only the best.”
Last season, Kapono appeared in all but one game for the Raptors, averaging 7.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and a career-high 1.3 assists while shooting 43.2% from the floor, 42.8% from 3-point range and 81.0% from the foul line. He ranked 12th in the NBA in 3-point percentage.
