76ers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski announced today that the Sixers have officially signed free agent swingman Rodney Carney.

Carney, who will start his fourth year in the league, played his first two seasons with the Sixers before being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the deal that freed cap space for Elton Brand. Last season, Carney, 6-foot-7, averaged a career-high 7.2 points in 67 games for Minnesota.

"Rodney Carney is a player that we feel will mesh extremely well with out current personnel and in the up-tempo style of play that Coach Jordan will continue to implement this season," Stefanski said. "We think that Rodney is one of the most athletic players in the league who has the ability to stretch the floor and we are happy to have him back."

Carney's signing gives the Sixers 13 players under contract, training camp opens Sept. 29 at St. Joseph's.
