The Philadelphia 76ers have added two more players to their training camp roster: free agents Solomon Alabi and Nayal "Mac" Koshwal.

The Nigerian-born Alabi was the 50th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Dallas Mavericks, but was soon dealt to the Toronto Raptors for future considerations. Alabi played a total of 26 games for the Raptors over two seasons, averaging 1.5 PPG and 2.3 RPG.

Prior to signing with Ikaros Chalkidas (Greek Basketball League) this past March, Alabi spent part of the 2012-13 season with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League, averaging 4.9 PPG, 5.5 RPG and 0.9 BPG in 18 contests (six starts). On the collegiate level, the 7'1", 250-pound Alabi made two ACC All-Defensive teams during his three years at Florida State.

Koshwal, a 6'10", 255-pound power forward who hails from the Sudan, averaged 12.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in three seasons at DePaul before going unselected in the 2010 NBA Draft. Since then, Koshwal has played professionally in Spain, was picked eighth overall in the 2011 NBA Development League draft, and has had a couple of stints on NBA Summer League entries.

This past season, Koshwal played 11 games with the Rochester RazorSharks in the Premier Basketball League, averaging 8.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per contest.

The Sixers' training camp roster now stands at the league maximum 20 players.
