Mike Bibby reaches out to 76ers

The Philadelphia Daily News (Phil Jasner) reports (via blog): The 76ers received an inquiry from the agent for Atlanta Hawks free agent guard Mike Bibby, but a source familiar with the situation said the conversation ”didn’t go anywhere.” The theory seemed to be that the agent waqs doing his due diligence, checking the market for his client. Bibby was listed on the Hawks’ salary cap last season at more than $14.98 million, but is more likely to play the coming season for something in the range of the $5.6 million mid-level exception.

InsideHoops.com editor says: I haven’t heard much about Bibby and the Hawks in free agency yet. It doesn’t sound like Atlanta plan on making any dramatic changes.
