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.

The 76ers have picked up their team option on Robert Covington for the 2017-18 season. Covington is on the books for a mere $1.5 million next season, so this was an incredibly easy decision for the 76ers to make, and the franchise will reportedly try and work out an extension with RoCo this summer. Covington is currently recovering from a relatively minor knee procedure, but he's fully expected to be ready for the start of the 2017-18 season.

The 76ers are hoping to sign Robert Covington to a contract extension during the offseason. He currently has one of the best contracts in the NBA as he's scheduled to make $1.5 million for the final year of his deal. The 76ers can't afford to risk letting Covington walk as an unrestricted free agent next summer, so an extension is likely a top priority for the franchise. The forward had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee back in mid-April, but he should be cleared to resume basketball activities sometime in June. The 26-year-old wing is a fantasy stud and posted averages of 12.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.9 steals and 2.0 treys on his way to a top-40 finish in standard leagues.

Robert Covington had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee Tuesday in Philadelphia. Per Sixers team doctors, Covington is expected to resume full weight bearing in two weeks and begin basketball activities this summer. Last week, RoCo said that full recovery time is usually 4-6 weeks, but that he might be able to beat that estimate because he had a head start on rehab. Also, Covington said the that the MRI showed it was "just a baby tear." He should certainly be ready to roll by the time training camp arrives.

Robert Covington (right knee) expects to miss 4-6 weeks as he recovers from a slight tear in his lateral meniscus. Covington said he could be back sooner, too, because he's had a "head start on rehab." Based on this report it sounds as though he will not require surgery, which should result in a speedy return to the court. Barring a setback, he'll be ready to roll for training camp.
