Julius Erving has returned to the Philadelphia 76ers as a strategic adviser.

The Sixers made the announcement Friday at halftime of Game 3 of their playoff series against Chicago. Erving's deal runs through 2015 and he will be available to the franchise on an as-needed basis.

He will counsel CEO Adam Aron and managing owner Joshua Harris. Erving will also take on a larger role as a goodwill ambassador for the team, meeting with fans and sponsors.

Erving played 11 seasons with the Sixers and led them to the 1983 NBA championship. His No. 6 was retired by the team and hangs in the Wells Fargo Center rafters.

He will continue to live in Atlanta.

Erving presented the game ball before tip.
