Twenty-three players saw minutes for the Sixers and, by process of elimination, that means one...

The Philadelphia 76ers have signed Jarvis Varnado for the remainder of the season.
The 76ers have a team option for Varnado for next season that contains some guaranteed money.
What can Jarvis Varnado provide for the 76ers?The journey thus far for Jarvis Varnado in professional basketball has been chaotic to say the least. Varnado was the 41st pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the Miami Heat, but since then, he has been all over the place.
He played overseas for several seasons which included time in two different Italian leagues as well as an Israeli league...
