PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Sixers will retire the No. 2 worn by the late great Moses Malone next month.

The Sixers will retire his number in a special halftime ceremony on Friday, Feb. 8, when the Sixers host the Denver Nuggets.
Before the game, the Sixers will unveil a statue of Malone on the Sixers Walk of Fame at the Camden training complex.
Fans at the game will also receive a Moses T-shirt.
