Buck said that it's "hard to convey" how is client is feeling, but that he's OK. Buck said, as of right now, Christmas' basketball options remain intact.

"We were and will continue to evaluate some of the opportunities that he has," Buck said. "There was nothing so immediate that we would have been leaving today or yesterday, but we are going to evaluate everything ... the lovely part about our great country is innocent until proven guilty."

"Things happen in life and we'll deal with it. He's dealt with a lot -- nothing of this nature -- but he's a positive person."

Sixers still have no comment about Marreese Speights' role in this situation.
