Bensalem senior Kevin Grow is set to sign a ceremonial 2-day contract with the Sixers on Monday. A special presentation will be held for Grow during Tuesday’s game vs. the Cavaliers.

After being presented the contract by Sixers GM Sam Hinkie, Grow will spend the day with his teammates by eating dinner and having a shoot-around with the club.

Grow hit 4 3-pointers in a performance that gave him national recognition against Neshaminy a few days back. He had been Bensalem’s team manager for each of his 4 years at the school.

UPDATE: Here are a few pictures from Kevin’s signing, via the Sixers’ Twitter account and NBA.com:
