Martin, 28, slots in as the Sixers’ starting power forward alongside former MVP center Joel Embiid and All-NBA forward Paul George, who agreed to a four-year, $212 million maximum deal on Monday. Philadelphia also added guard Eric Gordon and center Andre Drummond in free agency.

Per the report, Sixers forward/center Paul Reed will be waived. His contract for next season is non-guaranteed.

Martin averaged career highs in points (10.0) and assists (2.2) along with 4.4 rebounds in 64 games (23 starts) for the Heat last season.

In 266 games (88 starts) over five seasons with the Charlotte Hornets (2019-21) and Heat, Martin has averaged 8.5 points. 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
