The Philadelphia 76ers signed Drew Gordon and Malcolm Lee to their training camp roster on Tuesday while waiving Keith Bogans and Jarvis Varnado.
The 76ers' roster stands at 20 players.
The Philadelphia 76ers begin training camp after struggling to a 19-win season in 2013-2014, which included a 26-game losing streak. Trying to rebuild, the team drafted Joel Embiid and signed Luc Mbah a Moute to join Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams as a potential solid foundation for the future. The team is looking to begin training camp healthy, but Carter-Williams...
The possibility of a fewer wins in the 2014-15 season for the 76ers has become a harsh reality in the recent weeks. The departure of Thaddeus Young has put this team in a spot where in addition to scoring and defense, reliability and leadership have now been added to list of major concerns for this 2014-15 roster. For most of 2013-14, players such as Young (17.9 PPG), Evan...
It isn't easy to build the best basketball team in the NBA, but it's no snap to construct the worst one, either, and the 76ers, after the trade deadline last season, not only achieved that latter goal but might have fielded the least-talented team in the history of the league.
Twenty-three players saw minutes for the Sixers and, by process of elimination, that means one...

With March Madness in full effect this weekend and the 76ers underdogs in their match up with the Knicks on Friday and the Bulls on Saturday, we decided to give the usual Rapid Reacts post the weekend off.
Despite the most recent set backs — a 1-point loss at the Garden against the Knicks and a 10-point defeat in Chicago — as well as a losing streak that has now stretched to...

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...

Chicago Bulls Basketball– The Chicago Bulls may not have made any moves before the trade deadline like many people expected, but that doesn’t mean this roster is set in stone for the rest of the season.
The Bulls current roster is at 13 — the maximum number of players allowed — after they signed Jarvis Varnado to a 10-day deal last week.
Some experts predict the Bulls will...
Chicago Bulls Basketball: As the NBA Trade Deadline rapidly approaches, the odds of the Chicago Bulls making a blockerbuster deal, or any deal for that matter, is highly unlikely. As much as Chicago may beg and plead with the Bulls front office to get a little bit farther under the cap, the truth is that it just won’t happen.
The Chicago Bulls just picked up their...
According to Y! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls are expected to sign center Jarvis Varnado to a 10-day contract.
The 6-foot-10 power forward worked out in Chicago on Monday, according to Wojnarowski.
In 22 games with the D-League's Iowa Energy this year, Varnado averaged 14.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 4.7 blocks in nearly 32 minutes per game.
The Miami Heat have invited Jarvis Varnado, Justin Hamilton and Larry Drew II to the Sioux Falls Skyforce's training camp.
Varnado, Hamilton and Drew were cuts by the Heat in training camp.
All of those players are eligible to be claimed by any NBA team at any time, with the Heat not holding exclusive rights.
The Miami Heat began trimming their roster on Monday, as they waived Jarvis Varnado, Charlie Westbrook and Larry Drew II. The moves leave Miami with 17 player on its roster, meaning they still need to cut two more players before the season starts (a team can carry a maximum of 15 in the regular season).
The releases are far from being surprises; Michael Beasley and Roger Mason...
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have waived forward Jarvis Varnado and guards Larry Drew II and Charlie Westbrook.

The Miami Heat have waived Jarvis Varnado.
Varnado has bounced around since becoming the 41st overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft out of Mississippi State.
Varnado was on Miami's roster for the 2013 NBA Playoffs.
So what if there's hardly any room on the roster. The Miami Heat have added another NBA veteran.
The Heat on Friday announced the signing of guard Roger Mason Jr., a nine-year man.
Mason, whose deal is not guaranteed, joins a crowded situation in an attempt to earn a final roster spot. The Heat have 13 players with guaranteed contracts and the most they can keep is for the...
In this week’s addition to A Study In Green, we talk about former Celtics Kris Joseph, Jarvis Varnado and Darko Milicic.
Joseph‘s start for the Celtics in the 2012 NBA Summer League was promising. in the Orlando Summer League, Joseph played 5 games, averaging 9.4 points per game and 5.8 rebounds per game. In his 10 games for the Maine Red Claws he averaged 17...
The Miami Heat have 13 guaranteed contracts on their roster and could maintain the same amount throughout the upcoming season.
The Heat have told some player agents that they may carry only 13 players.

Jarvis Varnado will be with the Miami Heat for training camp.
A report in La Gazzetta dello Sports indicated Varnado was close to a deal in Italy.
"Fact is, Jarvis is under contract with the Heat. Jarvis hasn't accepted any offer from any team in Europe and Jarvis plans on playing for the Heat next year," Frankel said. "There's a lot of teams in Europe that...
If Jarvis Varnado is going to leave the Miami Heat to play overseas it will be a case of later rather than sooner.
Despite a report in La Gazzetta dello Sport that the shot-blocking center was close to a deal in Italy Boca Raton-based agent Mitch Frankel said Sunday his client remains under contract to the Heat and is planning to be at training camp which opens Oct. 1.
The Miami Heat are unlikely to add another big man to their roster.
The Heat have Chris Bosh, Chris Andersen, Udonis Haslam, Greg Oden and Joel Anthony as their bigs.
The Heat also are unlikely to retain Jarvis Varnado.
