The Philadelphia 76ers signed forward Alex Poythress from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Development League on Sunday.
The Sixers were able to add a player to the roster due to the NBA's injury hardship exception.
Poythress, 23, appeared in 46 games (45 starts) for Fort Wayne this season, averaging 18.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.4 block in 31 minutes per contest. He shot 57 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the 3-point line.
Poythress, a 2017 NBA D-League All Star selection, ranked in the top 15 in the D-League in points, field goals made and attempted, offensive rebounds and blocks per game.
The 6-foot-7, 238-pound Poythress appeared in 112 career games at the University of Kentucky, finishing his four-year career. He went undrafted in 2016.
