Sixers add forward


The Sixers have signed free-agent forward Rashad Jones-Jennings, bringing the training camp roster to 18 players.

Jones-Jennings (6-8, 230) went undrafted out of Arkansas-Little Rock in 2007 after leading the nation in rebounding.

He competed for the Sixers in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas in 2007.

Last season, Jones-Jennings played for FC Bayern München ,of the German League, averaging 8.1 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.


The Sixers will return to the Wachovia Spectrum for a free open practice session on Saturday, Oct. 10, Comcast-Spectacor announced this morning.

The session is scheduled for 11 a.m. No tickets are required and the doors open at 10 a.m.

“With October being the final month of the Spectrum and the excitement the team generated last season with their special Return to the Spectrum game, we felt it was important for the fans to be able to celebrate the many wonderful memories of the Spectrum with the Sixers one more time,” Comcast-Spectacor president Peter Luukko said in a statement.

The open practice features warmup drills, shooting practice, and an intersquad scrimmage. Assistant coach Mike O’Koren will wear a microphone and describe the action to the fans as it’s happening and forward Andre Iguodola will welcome the fans with a special pre-practice opening announcement.

The practice coincides with individual game tickets going on sale, beginning at 10 a.m. that day

The Sixers open the 2009-10 home portion of their schedule on Friday, October 30, when they host the Milwaukee Bucks at 7 p.m.
