PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia 76ers added some depth to the front court by signing veteran centre Tony Battie on Wednesday.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"We see Tony Battie as a player who can come in and give us additional depth in the front court while also providing a valuable veteran presence for our younger players both on and off the court," 76ers general manager Ed Stefanski said.

The 6-foot-11, 240-pounder will be entering his 13th season in the NBA. Last year with New Jersey, Battie saw action in only 15 games and posted averages of 2.4 points and 1.5 rebounds.

Over 772 career games, including 418 starts, Battie is averaging 6.4 points and 5.3 boards with Denver, Boston, Cleveland, Orlando and the Nets.
