The Philadelphia 76ers officially signed Primoz Brezec.

Terms of the contract weren't disclosed. Brezec is currently buried in the depth chart but should the disgruntled Samuel Dalembert be moved, Brezec might see value.

Raptors' reserve center Primoz Brezec has agreed to sign a contract with Rome's Virtus Roma.

Brezec will return to Europe after seven seasons in the NBA, spent with Indiana, Charlotte and Detroit before joining Toronto. He had one nice season in Charlotte, but never got much of a chance over the last couple years. "I am very happy and proud to play next year in Rome," Brezec said. "It's beautiful to return to Europe after seven years in the NBA."

Primoz Brezec returned for the Raptors on Wednesday after missing time with a strained groin.

He had two points in less than two minutes of action, and has no fantasy value.

Raptors center Primoz Brezec hasn't dressed in a week due to a strained groin.

He was only averaging eight minutes per game in March, so it's hard to tell when he's out. Brezec has no fantasy value.

Primoz Brezec made his Raptors debut on Sunday, finishing with 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting and three rebounds in 12 minutes.

Brezec even blocked one shot, and should settle into a 15 minute roll alongside Rasho Nesterovic (eight points, eight boards in 18 minutes).

The Pistons traded center Primoz Brezec to the Raptors on Thursday, his third team of the season after being traded from the Bobcats to the Pistons earlier this year.

Brezec should pick up around 15 minutes as long as Andrea Bargnani is struggling, but don't expect him to have fantasy value. Apparently the Raptors weren't confident that Rasho Nesterovic could carry them to the conference championship.

After being acquired in a trade from Charlotte earlier this month, Primoz Brezec has quickly fit in with his Pistons teammates. His play has earned him the nickname "Gangsta" from teammate Rasheed Wallace.

The Pistons are a very tight nit group so the nickname is huge for Brezec. "He's high-energy, he's very enthusiastic, he plays hard -- he's borderline out-of-control at times," coach Flip Saunders said. "But you've got to like his enthusiasm. He's really well-liked by the players." There remains speculation that the Pistons could sign Chris Webber in January and could very likely take Brezec's place as their No. 4 big man in the rotation.

Primoz Brezec, who broke his nose before he came to the Pistons, was wearing a protective mask during pregame warm-ups Friday night.

He did not wear it during the game. He had two points and two steals. Wearing that mask is definitely a comfort thing; Luke Ridnour couldn't play at all with the mask, while Richard Hamilton liked it so much, he wore for months after his nose was healed.

Primoz Brezec made his Pistons debut Sunday against Golden State, playing the final six minutes of the victory - he didn't take a shot.

Brezec will see minimal playing time with the Pistons deep, veteran frontcourt. He's not worth owning in fantasy leagues unless Detroit loses some of their big man to injuries.

F/C Primoz Brezec was traded to the Pistons on Friday along with F Walter Herrmann in exchange for C Nazr Mohammed.

Brezec has no more value in Detroit than he had in Charlotte.

Charlotte Bobcats center Primoz Brezec is having a rough season, as he adjusts to limited playing time and a tweaked gameplan under new coach Sam Vincent.

"I'm not a lousy defender," Brezec recently said. "Guys tell me, 'Primoz, you've got to shoot!' But you can't score without the ball. It's just a different system right now. I've got to find a way to contribute." Unless Brezec starts playing better, avoid him in all fantasy formats.

Primoz Brezec (swollen eye) started Monday against the Blazers and went scoreless.

Brezec was questionable coming in, but was able to suit up. He went 0-for-3 from the floor and added five boards in his 11 minutes of action. Avoid him in all fantasy leagues while he's mired in an offensive funk.

Primoz Brezec is starting for the Bobcats on Monday.

He has a swollen eye, but will give it a go.
