Sixers Sign Oft-Troubled Veteran Center Polynice


PHILADELPHIA (Oct. 14) -- Center Olden Polynice, who has had his troubles off the court, on Monday signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Terms were not disclosed for Polynice, who did not play last season but is joining his sixth team in his 14-year career.

Polynice last played for the Utah Jazz in the 2000 season, averaging 5.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in 81 games. He was arrested twice for impersonating a police officer.

The 37-year-old Polynice has career averages of 7.8 points and 6.7 rebounds in 1,056 games. The 7-footer also has played with Seattle, the Los Angeles Clippers, Detroit and Sacramento during his career.

Polynice was selected eighth overall by Chicago in 1987 and sent to the SuperSonics in a draft-day deal for Scottie Pippen.
