Dewayne Dedmon came to the Sixers with a short NBA résumé but a definitive reputation.

“I bring energy. I rebound the ball and I block shots. That is what I came here to do,” Dedmon said. “I am pretty satisfied. I feel like I came here and did what I was supposed to do and we have another one on Friday and I am going to try and do it again.”

Dedmon played 14 minutes against Charlotte on Wednesday, his first game action after signing a 10-day contract on Tuesday. He grabbed seven rebounds and blocked two shots in the Sixers’ 95-92 win over the Bobcats.

It was just one game but Dedmon impressed his new coach.

The 76ers scooped up the 7-footer off the Warriors D-League affiliate and signed him to a 10-day contract on Tuesday. He played five games with the Warriors this year, collecting one point, seven rebounds and two blocks in 20 total minutes.
