Ricky Council IV Continues to Dominate in the G League

Updated: Dec 10, 2023

Sixers rookie Ricky Council IV leads Blue Coats to win over Swarm

While the Philadelphia 76ers are focused on getting healthy, their young players are working in the G League.

The Delaware Blue Coats, the team’s G League affiliate, picked up a 123-113 win over the Greensboro Swarm on Saturday night. They were led by undrafted rookie Ricky Council. The bouncy athlete from Arkansas contributed 21 points on 8-for-17 shooting and he knocked down three 3s on the night.

David Duke Jr., who the Sixers signed to an Exhibit 10 deal shortly before the preseason, led the Blue Coats with 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists. Javonte Smart, on a two-way deal with the Sixers, added 24 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

Terquavion Smith, another undrafted rookie for the Sixers, had 12 points off the bench.

Council was terrific and he showed off his shooting ability. If he can take steps in that direction, he is going to be able to carve out a role in the NBA for a long time. He has all the tools to succeed in the league, but he needs to find consistency on his 3-point shot.
