Sixers sign Brezec to 1-year deal
Philadelphia Daily News

Daily News Staff Report

The Sixers have signed free-agent center Primoz Brezec to a 1-year contract worth $1.1 million.

The 7-1 Brezec, who entered the league with the Indiana Pacers as a first-round draft choice in 2000 (No. 27 overall), is the fifth big man on the current roster, joining Dalembert, Elton Brand, Marreese Speights and Jason Smith.

The signing was first reported last week in the Daily News.

"We feel that Primoz will provide us with additional size and depth in the front court, but just as beneficial is the wealth of experience he brings to the team not only on the NBA level, but internationally as well," Sixers president/general manager Ed Stefanski said in a statement.

Brezec, 29, has career averages of 7.6 points and 4.1 rebounds, also logging time with the Charlotte Bobcats, Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors. He posted career highs of 13.0 points and 7.4 rebounds with the Bobcats in 2004-05.

He spent last season in Italy, and last played in the NBA with the Bobcats, Pistons and Raptors in '07-08, appearing in a combined 50 games. He has been a starter in 214 of his 321 career appearances.

A member of the Slovenian National Team, Brezec has competed in the 2003 and 2005 FIBA European Championships and the 2006 FIBA World Championship.

Primoz Brezec is nothing more than a end of the bench player for everyone's information.

Haha he's our 5th big man behind Brand, Dalembert, Speights, and Jason Smith. And Thad Young may play some at the 4. He isn't a major contributor and wasn't even in the league last year. This thread was made in sarcasm.

He sucked on the Raptors but he could be solid for 76ers.

08-14-2009, 03:47 PM
He and Brand compliment eachother

08-14-2009, 03:52 PM
I actually think he pretty decent post defender, did okay during his time with the bobcats.

08-14-2009, 05:15 PM
yee primo..... MVP

08-14-2009, 06:06 PM
Barring injury and/or trade, he is a 12th man. Non factor.

08-14-2009, 06:14 PM
I remember one time he single handedly owned the Miami Heat.
No joke.
