The 76ers will unveil a sculpture of Bobby Jones outside their practice facility in Camden on Friday.

The forward averaged 10.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks during his eight seasons in Philadelphia. He won the NBA’s award for sixth man of the year in 1983. The defensive standout also made two of his four all-star appearances as a Sixer.

The organization retired his No. 24 jersey back in 1986.
