Buckner, who has spent all three of his NBA seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, got an $18 million, six-year deal that starts at $2.4 million this season.
"I don't have a best position," Buckner said. "I just think I'm a basketball player. "I like to guard the best payers on the wing. My game has been to strictly play defense and rebound, do the scrappy things."
Buckner played a key role as a defensive specialist for the Mavericks over the course of the last 3 seasons, and now he'll transistion back to the East Coast to be utilized in the same way with the 76ers.
You might remember Buckner helping lead a resurgence in Clemson basketball back when he led the Tigers to the Sweet 16 in the 1997 NCAA Tournament. He never missed a start at Clemson, breaking a record held by Clemson great Tree Rollins in 1998.
