Whoa, 2 Sixers Posts...They Must be Good!

Wednesday, August 6, 2008 ·

Even after the 76ers sign Andre Iguodala, they will not have to worry about the luxury tax. Currently, the Sixers are $5 million under the salary cap, not including Iguodala's $8 million tender offer. With 11 players equaling about $53.5 million, the Sixers will definitely fall short of the luxury tax threshold of $71.5 million.

According to Tom Moore, the 76ers are discussing a 5 year, $70 million deal with Andre Iguodala's camp. His salary this year would be $12 million, with an annual raise of about $1.25 million.

Personally, I think this is a good deal. Sure, it is a little more than Deng and Okeafor, but Iguodala has missed only 6 games in his career. 322 out of 328 games. His scoring average has gone up every year and it should improve with an interior post prescence from Elton Brand. Yes, Iguodala is not the greatest jump shooter, but when other teams have no one down low to consistently defend like they did in the past, they can roll coverage onto Iguodala.

Things look Sunny for both of Ed Snider's teams this year.

Hell, it's always sunny in Philadelphia...especially when there's not one, but two Sixers posts in a day.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
