Forward Caleb Martin is the latest free agent to join the Philadelphia 76ers, agreeing to a four-year contract worth more than $32 million, per an ESPN report Saturday.

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 brings valuable playoff experience, including an NBA Finals appearance in 2023, when the Miami Heat lost to the Denver Nuggets. In the 2023 Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics, Martin averaged 19.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

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.
