Kevin Grow, a high school senior with Down syndrome who lives in the Philadelphia area, has been signed by the Philadelphia 76ers to a ceremonial two-day contract.

Grow scored 14 points including three 3-pointers and a buzzer beater over the final two games of the varsity season after Bensalem High School coaches put him, the team's four-year manager, in the lineup.

As a two-day member of the Sixers, Grow will get a custom jersey and participate in pregame activities prior to the team's home game Tuesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Grow will stand with the team during the national anthem and his Bensalem teammates will join him in a special presentation prior to the 7 p.m. ET tip-off.
