The Philadelphia 76ers today announced they have signed power forward/center Furkan Aldemir (Fur-kahn Al-di-meer). The native of Turkey has been playing professionally in his home country since 2007-08. He joined Galatasaray Liv Hospital in 2011 and helped them earn the Turkish Basketball League (TBL) title in 2012-13 before finishing as runner-up in 2013-14. Aldemir (6'10", 240) was leading the TBL in rebounding with 11 per game this season, after leading the league in total rebounds in 2013-14 and earning All-Star honors in 2010 and 2012. NBA.com

The Sixers (2-21) waived Ronald Roberts from their 15-man roster to make room for the new addition. The move came two days after the team called up Roberts from the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League. A team source said the former St. Joseph's standout would be sent back to the 87ers.

The 76ers have more MVPs than any other franchise outside of Lakers and Celtics, so the team's Top 50 is obviously stacked with talent.
