Dajuan Wagner back to Philly?

Aug 23, 2006, 12:21 AM EDT

A little bit of rare Sixers news in the off season.  SI.com had a note that Wagner was recently in Philly:

Dajuan Wagner had a workout with the 76ers recently at their
practice facility. The Golden State Warriors have been to Cherry Hill
to watch Wagner play. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Wagner is trying to work
his way back into the NBA after battling knee injuries and colitis over
his three-year career with the Cavaliers.

For those of you may have forgotten Wagner, Dick Jerardi did a nice piece on Wagner’s comeback earlier this month:

DAJUAN WAGNER was "The Messiah." He scored 100 in a high-school game.
He averaged 42.5 points as a senior at Camden High. He scored 3,462
points in high school, the most in New Jersey history. He scored 25
points in the McDonald’s All-American Game at Duke.

Wagner had some pretty serious health issues which would be tough for anyone to overcome.  The Daily News piece tells his incredible story.  He could be a big pick up for any team if he can get back to his old form.
