Comcast SportsNet has brought in onetime Villanova star Ed Pinckney as color man for the 76ers games; he'll work with Marc Zumoff, entering his 16th season as play-by-play announcer.

Pinckney, whose 12-year NBA career includes one as a Sixer during the 1995-96 season, has done broadcast work for the Miami Heat and was a Postgame Live analyst for two seasons.

He replaces Bob Salmi, whose contract was not renewed in the spring.
