Report: Philadelphia signs Francisco Elson

6 Comments

The 76ers are in need of some depth on the front line. Spencer Hawes (Achilles) and Nikola Vucevic (thigh) are out injured leaving them thin.

So enter Francisco Elson, who has signed with the team according to HoopsHype. Elson, 35, has eight years in the NBA and spent last season with the Utah Jazz. He’s a 7-foot center out of the Netherlands via California (played his college ball in Berkley).

Elson and Dan Gadzuric worked out for the team this week. You’re not going to see a lot of Elson and he likely gets let go when Hawes and Vucevic return, but for now it looks like he is on the team.
