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.
