Former All-Star center DeAndre Jordan cleared the waivers and signed with the Philadelphia 76ers Thursday.

In a related move, the 76ers fired Willie Cauley-Stein, who was on a 10-day contract with the team.

Jordan signed a one-year deal worth at least $2.6 million with the Los Angeles Lakers in September but had only played five games since Christmas. The Lakers waived the 33-year-old on Tuesday in favor of signing point guard DJ Augustin.

Overall, Jordan played 32 games (19 starts) for the Lakers, averaging a career-low 4.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

Now Jordan will take on the role of Joel Embiid’s backup at the center of a title contender in Philadelphia. The Sixers added James Harden at the close, sending Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and big man Andre Drummond to Brooklyn in the process.

Jordan was a two-season rebounding leader and a 2016-17 All-Star with the Los Angeles Clippers. In 14 seasons with the Clippers (2008-18), Dallas Mavericks (2018-19), New York Knicks (2019), Brooklyn Nets (2019-21) and Lakers, Jordan has averaged 9.2 points, 10 .4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 964 games (775 starts).
