The 76ers announced the signings of free-agent post players Solomon Alabi and Nayal “Mac” Koshwal on  Saturday. Their additions brings the Sixers training camp roster to 20 players.

Alabi was selected in the second round of the 2010 draft before his rights were traded to the Toronto Raptors. The 7-foot-1, 250-pounder played for the Raptors during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons. The 25-year-old played for  Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League and Ikaros Chalkidas B.C. in Greece last year.

The 6-foot-10, 255-pound Koshwal had several minor league stints after declaring for the draft following his junior season at DePaul back in 2010.
