Sixers Waive Benjamin, Sign Mahorn

February 24, 1999

PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ The Philadelphia 76ers waived center Benoit Benjamin and signed 40-year-old free-agent Rick Mahorn, who played for the team nine years ago.

Mahorn spent his last two seasons with the Detroit Pistons, who he played for from 1985-89 before joining the 76ers for the first time. He broke in with the Washington Bullets in 1980.

Mahorn helped the Pistons win the NBA title in 1989 as a member of the ``Bad Boy″ squad.

Benjamin saw scant playing time this season and averaged just 0.7 points and 1.3 rebounds a game.
