Aldemir has attempted more three-pointers in the first two summer league games than he did his entire rookie season.

Aldemir has hit 3-of-6 attempts from deep, an improvement from his 0-of-5 display in 41 games last season. Hitting three-pointers will earn anyone minutes in the rotation; he just needs to prove that two days worth of data isn't a fluke. With the Sixers' frontcourt depth, it's difficult to project meaningful minutes in Aldemir's sophomore season.

Aldemir has started both summer league games at power forward for the 76ers, averaging 5.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 1.0 assist, and 0.5 steals in 29 minutes per game.

Aldemir has played solid basketball thus far in the summer league. He exploded in Tuesday's game with the Celtics, racking up 14 rebounds and three blocks. Alongside his defensive outburst, Aldemir scored 11 points and, surprisingly enough, went 3-of-5 from three-point territory. If he can continue this type of production on both sides of the ball, Aldemir could see an increase in minutes in the upcoming season on a young, unproven 76ers' roster. Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel should get the bulk of the Sixers' frontcourt minutes next season, but if Joel Embiid (foot) is unable to play, Aldemir could be in line to serve as the primary backup in the frontcourt.

Aldemir averaged 2.3 points, 0.7 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 0.4 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 13 minutes per game for 41 regular season games in 2014-15.

Aldemir came from overseas and formally joined the 76ers in December. He mostly came off the bench, but got to start in April, as the team allowed its younger players to gain experience. Until Joel Embiid fully recovers from his surgery, Aldemir will be able to get minutes at center and possibly slide into the starting lineup. The 23-year-old isn't a real fantasy asset yet, but he'll have the chance to get solid minutes on a depleted 76ers roster in 2015-16.
