Splitter was acquired from the Atlanta Hawks at the 2017 deadline in a deal that sent Ersan Ilyasova to the ATL. After a few days with the Delaware Blue Coats in the G League, he played eight games for Philadelphia at the end of the 2016-17 season. He averaged 4.9 points and 2.8 rebounds for them in those eight games and he retired in 2018.
