Ivey a Sixer for Another Season

So… Royal Ivey opts out of his contract only to receive a one-year deal worth just above the league minimum? Somebody find this man another agent: “The 76ers are finalizing a deal to bring back combo guard Royal Ivey on a 1-year contract. The two sides have agreed to terms, although a contract probably will not be executed until at least the end of the week. Ivey, who joined the Sixers last season, opted out of the second leg of his 2-year contract. A source familiar with the situation indicated the deal is for slightly more than the league minimum.”

    I thought you guys were talking about Iverson. You know, like how Wolverine is sometimes called Wolvie.

    No, Zabba. I think its fair to say we dont.

  • cramzy

    I ain’t gone front, I thought this was about A.I.

    Biggest pump-fake headline ever. I work here, I know Philly has no interest in Iverson, I know Royal Ivey personally, and I STILL thought this was referencing AI. I think that means it’s time for him to get a team!

    How great would it be if Ivey (Royal) took AI’s 3?

  • zabba

    Lol @ Ben and Boing Dynasty.

  • underdog

    Wow, pump-fake headline? Nice one Ben.

    Yes Ben, and I jumped over the article, landed on it’s back. The article collapsed, banged it’s knee on the hardwood floor, and is now shooting a Flagrant 2. And I’m going back to the locker room.

    this turned from “oh my god no way” to a “who really gives a sh*t?”

    combined with hakim warrick going to the bucks and the schedule getting released tomorrow, this means 3 or 4 opportunities for royal to once again tell us how warrick’s jock taste.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    AWW, I thought this was about Iverson too! I fell for the pump fake, I’m not gonna lie.

  • Yann Blavec’s wife’s husband

    It was a Dream Shake kind of fake.

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/nba/overdribbling/index276 chiqo
