Not Necessarily A Big Help

The 76ers need a big man or two to help fill out the last couple of spots on their roster. Don't expect to be dazzled by the names that might be on their list of possibilities.

Not Necessarily A Big Help


What does it say when the 76ers need a couple of big men to help fill out their roster, and the best names could turn out to be Primoz Brezec and Chris Mihm?

A source familiar with the Sixers' situation suggests a grouping the team could be considering internally includes Brezec, Mihm, Aaron Gray, Ryan Hollins, Jared Reiner, Jake Voshkuhl, Adonal Foyle and Earl Barron.

OK, we'll wait while you catch your breath.

They're all between 6-10 and 7-0. None of them have exactly imposing statistics. They all have some level of NBA experience. And that's about what you'll find in a search for guys to be the 13th or 14th men on a roster.

Since it's unclear whether the Sixers have reached out to any of these guys it's probably not worth going through their various backgrounds at this point. Maybe if one or two of them get invited to training camp.
