Francisco Elson PF/C PHI Jan 27 '12
Francisco Elson has reportedly signed with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Elson was in for a workout with Dan Gadzuric this week, and the Sixers are in desperate need of some depth in the big man department with both Spencer Hawes (Achilles) and Nikola Vucevic (thigh) nursing injuries. Elson will have absolutely no fantasy value.

Free agent C Francisco Elson will work out for the 76ers on Tuesday, a source tells HoopsHype.com.
The Sixers' already thin front line has been decimated by injuries to Spencer Hawes (Achilles) and Nikola Vucevic (quad). Elson did spend some time with the Sixers late in the 2009-10 season as part of the Jodie Meeks trade. If signed, the 7-footer would be mere insurance.
