UPDATE: The 76ers officially announced the signing of center Dewayne Dedmon to a 10-day contract on Tuesday.

From Monday night: The 76ers have interior help on the way.

They will sign center Dewayne Dedmon to a 10-day contract on Tuesday morning, a league source has confirmed.

The 7-foot, 255-pounder was averaging 15.2 points, 13.5 rebounds and 2.3 blocked shots with the Santa Cruz Warriors, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Developmental League affiliate.

Dedmon, 24, had a brief stint with the Golden State Warriors after going undrafted out of Southern California this summer.

He was in Philadelphia working out for the Sixers on Monday along with Jarvis Varnado,  Kyrylo Fesenko and Hamady N’Diaye.

The Sixers have a spot available after waiving reserve center Daniel Orton last week.
