IT'S GETTING TALL IN PHILADELPHIA

The Philadelphia 76ers are among six teams interested in giving former center Ralph Sampson another chance at resuming his once-promising career.

Sixers general manager John Lucas said the 7-foot-4 Sampson will be in Philadelphia for two days of workouts beginning Sept. 28. Lucas will decide whether to invite Sampson to training camp after the workouts."We'll bring him in for a look - just to look and see," Lucas said.

Sampson, 34, was riddled with knee injuries in the late 1980s and has not played in the NBA since the 1991-92 season, when he struggled to get up and down the court with Washington.

If Sampson sticks with the Sixers, he would back up 7-foot-6 center Shawn Bradley.
