Robert Covington will be eligible for a contract extension Wednesday, on which the Sixers’ will reportedly ‘seal the deal’ as soon as possible, according to Marc Stein.
Covington has exceeded expectations since joining the Sixers’ back in 2014 and the team seems to have no doubts as to the 26 year-old being a part of their future. This season Covington is averaging 16 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.7 trey’s and 1.5 steals per game in 31 minutes. Covington was a steal in drafts this season and should continue being relied upon for threes and steals.
