The 76ers can offer Robert Covington an extension for up to $39 million over four years this summer.
The 76ers recently picked up their team option on Covington, so he will be on the books for just $1.5 million in 2017-18. Covington will more than likely be looking for a larger deal, so the two sides might wait until Nov. 15 when he will be eligible for more money -- that will be his three year anniversary with Philly. Covington was fourth in the league in steals (1.9 per game) last season with 12.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 triples, but his field goal percentage (39.9 percent) was an issue. He's one of Philly's best defenders and perimeter shooters, so he should have a nice role in 2017-18.
