Philadelphia 76ers Roster Report 2009-10-08

Philadelphia 76ers Roster Report 2009-10-08PLAYER NEWS:

--G Willie Green is being used as the backup point guard after his last four seasons primarily off the ball.

"I can bring the ball up and I can play off the ball," Green said. "It's just a learning process. When I first came into the league, I played point guard -- I didn't play shooting guard (for two years). It's just a matter of just getting comfortable, learning the offense and going out there and executing."

--F Elton Brand looked good early in camp after missing 127 of a possible 164 games due to injuries over the previous two seasons. He appeared more athletic than he was last year for the Sixers and also more assertive on the floor.

"He's running pretty well," Jordan said. "He's very physical."

--C Samuel Dalembert was slowed by a sore right shoulder during camp.

--Free agent C Stromile Swift missed two days with a strained left hamstring.


Jrue Holiday, G, 6-3, UCLA (first round) -- Sixers like him for his defense and ability to play both guard positions, though he expects to play the point in the pros. Likely to be a reserve, at least to start the season.
