Philadelphia 76ers sign Dewayne Dedmon to 10-day contract
The Philadelphia 76ers today announced that they have signed center Dewayne Dedmon to a 10-day contract. Dedmon is the 12th D-League to NBA "Call-Up" of the 2013-14 NBA Development League season. He will wear #30 for the Sixers.
Dedmon (7-0, 255) was an early entry candidate for the 2013 NBA Draft following his junior season at Southern California. He played for Miami in the Orlando Pro Summer League and for Dallas in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas before joining Golden State for training camp and preseason.
This is the second time Dedmon has been called up to the NBA this season, appearing in four games with the Warriors, who signed him on November 18, 2013.
In 15 starts for the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA D-League this season, Dedmon is averaging 15 points, a league-high 13.5 rebounds and over two blocks while shooting 54% from the floor.
The 76ers are 12-25 for the season so far, which is the third worst record in the NBA, ahead of the 10-28 Orlando Magic and the 7-30 Milwaukee Bucks.
