"I still want to join this team during the year," Kazemi said, adding that the Sixers can "see what I've added to my game this year."
The 24-year-old averaged 12.5 points and 11 rebounds last season for Petrochimi Bandar Imam of the Iran Super League.
"I can guard the perimeter," Kazemi said. "But I still need to work on the perimeter. I think I worked on my shot a little bit, so hopefully I will show that during the games."
The former Oregon star will not play in the NBA Summer League next week in Las Vegas.
Kazemi was training with the Iranian national team before he flew to Orlando. He will rejoin the national team for the FIBA Asia Cup, which runs from Friday through July 19 in China.
Noel back in action
Nerlens Noel will play Tuesday in a summer league game against the Houston Rockets. The 6-11 center sat out Sunday's 84-73 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Sixers say they don't want to overwork Noel, who played an organized game Saturday for the first time in 17 months after knee surgery. He scored 19 points in an 83-77 loss to the Magic.
"I'm just glad that I got back on the court," Noel said. "Now I know there are not many limitations."
The 20-year-old is focused on improving his shot and adding muscle to his 223-pound frame by the start of the regular season.
Headed for Las Vegas
Former Big Five standouts Tyreek Duren and Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson will join the 76ers when they begin play in the Las Vegas Summer League. The games run from Saturday through July 21.
Jefferson, a forward out of Temple, played last season for AB Contern in Luxembourg. Duren is an undrafted rookie free agent out of La Salle.
"It's great to be here," Duren said. "Growing up, I looked up to a lot of the Sixers guys, such players as A.I. and all of them. It's kind of unbelievable, just to be here."
On playing professionally in Luxembourg, Hollis-Jefferson said: "It was different. I'm appreciative of them giving me a job over there . . . Long-term goal is just to try to make the team, stay around."
Center Nerlens Noel and second-round draft picks K.J. McDaniels and Jerami Grant, who are playing in the Orlando Pro Summer League, will join the team in Vegas.
