SUNDAY, 5:11pm: The Sixers are working out free agent big men Monday, including the D-League’s Dewayne Dedmon and Jarvis Varnado, sources tell Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter). Philadelphia lost some frontcourt depth last week when they waived center Daniel Orton.
Dedmon is currently with the Santa Cruz Warriors after a short stint with the Warriors’ varsity squad earlier this season. The 7’0” center appeared in four games with Golden State, logging a whopping six minutes. The Warriors flirted with bringing him back at different points since cutting him loose and as recently as last week they were mulling it over.
Varnado, a shot-blocking forward who spent time with the Celtics and Heat last season, is with the Iowa Energy this year. The 25-year-old has averaged 14.5 PPG and 9.9 RPG in 23 D-League games this season.
