Re: royal ivey is gone
It's a great thing for the Sixers. Not because there isn't a place for a 12th man like Ivey, but because he's a dime a dozen player who is easily replaced and the roster spot and flexibility it gives the Sixers is more valuable than anything Ivery could provide on the court. I doubt he gets a better deal from anyone in the NBA, although there is always the possibility that someone overseas might give him a deal he can't refuse. A $1.5 million contract overseas comes tax free and with a free car, apartment, and expenses and would be equivalent to a $3 million dollar deal here for example so if he has a chance to grab a contract like that, he'd be foolish to pass up on it.
