The former Sixers wing was an All-Defensive Team selection in both 2021 and 2022 before being traded to the Portland Trailblazers this past February.

Former Sixer Matisse Thybulle

Matisse Thybulle looks to be headed to his third team in two seasons. According to a report from Bleacher Report's Chris Haynes, Thybulle "intends to sign" an offer sheet in free agency with the Dallas Mavericks.

Once free agency officially opens on Thursday, Thybuylle will be able to sign that offer sheet. As a restricted free agent coming off his rookie NBA contract, Thybulle's incumbent team, the Portland Trailblazers, will have a chance to match the Mavericks' offer to Thybulle. 

No contract details in terms of years and money have been made known for Thybulle, which leaves me thinking that his free agency market was small. 

An All-Defensive Second Team selection in 2021 and 2022, Thybulle spent the first three-and-a-half years of his career with the Sixers before being traded to Portland this past February. He was a fan favorite in Philadelphia, at least until his decision to not be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 caused him to miss multiple games in the Sixers' first-round playoff series against the Raptors in 2022 due to Canada's vaccination travel requirements.
