76ers guarantee Iverson

Update: In the Deep Sixer video player on the right, check out the video of Eddie Jordan talking about Allen Iverson.

In a less than surprising move, the Sixers announced they have officially guaranteed the contract of Allen Iverson for the remainder of the season.

Iverson signed a pro-rated, 1-year contract with the Sixers on Dec. 3, 2009 for just over $1 million. Contract needed to be guaranteed by Jan. 10.

"Since his arrival, Allen has done everything asked of him and has been an excellent teammate," said Sixers General Manager Ed Stefanski in a press release.

In 9 games this season (all starts), Iverson has averaged 15.7 points, 4.7 assists, and 3.4 rebounds a game. The Sixers are 10-23 and play the Washington Wizards tonight.
