Sixers guarantee AI contract for rest of season
The Philadelphia 76ers guaranteed guard Allen Iverson's contract for the rest of the season on Tuesday.
The Sixers could have waited until Wednesday to guarantee the remainder of his prorated one-year contract worth US$1.3 million. Iverson was signed by the Sixers as a free agent on Dec. 3.
Philadelphia is 4-5 with Iverson in the lineup. The 34-year-old also sat out four games with arthritis in his left knee.
Iverson is averaging 15.7 points and 4.7 assists in 33 minutes a game.
"Since his arrival, Allen has done everything asked of him and has been an excellent teammate," Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski said in a statement before Tuesday night's game against Washington.
