JULY 27TH: The Sixers have officially signed Ivey, the team announced today in a press release.
JULY 17TH: The 76ers and Royal Ivey have agreed to terms on a contract, Philadelphia coach Doug Collins told reporters (including Tom Moore of PhillyBurbs.com). The years and dollars are unknown, but I'd be surprised if Ivey receives another more than a minimum-salary, one-year guarantee.
We heard last week that the Sixers were hoping to add one more big man and a veteran point guard to their roster this offseason. They ticked the former off their checklist by signing Kwame Brown, and the addition of Ivey appears to round out the team's July moves.
Ivey, 30, spent the last two seasons with the Thunder, seeing limited action at the point behind Russell Westbrook and Eric Maynor. This will be the second stint in Philadelphia for the former Longhorn, who has also seen action with the Hawks and Bucks since being drafted in 2004.
