The first move by the 76ers on this, the first day free agents can be signed, certainly isn't a blockbuster, but a necessity nonetheless.
According to a source, the team is bringing back veteran center Tony Battie, probably for the veteran minimum.
Battie was with the team last season, playing in 38 games in a backup center role to starter Spencer Hawes. He averaged about 10 minutes a game.
Hawes is an unrestricted free agent, but probably will be returning to the team.
