Philadelphia 76ers Sign Royal Ivey

The Philadelphia 76ers have signed point guard Royal Ivey to a one-year, $1.23 million (veteran’s minimum) deal. This will be Ivey’s second stint with the Sixers; Philadelphia previously signed Ivey in 2008 as a free agent, then traded him to Milwaukee in 2010. Philly.com has the details: “The hope is that if Jrue Holiday does suffer an injury that keeps him sidelined for a significant amount of time, Ivey will be able to step in and give the team competent play at the point. Ivey, 30, an eight-year vet, spent the last two seasons in Oklahoma City. During his career, Ivey has started 109 games and averaged 3.4 points and 1.1 assists per game.”

    He is actually pretty decent. He can play D, run the team somewhat, and shoot the occasional spot up 3.

    I got love for Royal because he’s a fellow Queens native, but I have no clue how he keeps getting signed. He must thank his agent every day.

    ^probably a very good practice player that will challenge the starting point guard in practice

    That’s it, might as well hand us the 2013 O’Brien trophy. It’s a wrap fellas. The Sixers are your 2013 NBA Champs.

    Everything the sixers are doing right now is for next offseason. There isn’t a single bad contract on that team anymore. The flexibility should make it possible to lure in a couple of free agents. I am intrigued by what direction they will take. Most likely in a trade scenario.
