As with all good things, Maurice Cheeks had to wait for his contract extension.

He had to wait for 76ers general manager Ed Stefanski to wheel and deal in the bustling free-agent market, first landing two-time all-star power forward Elton Brand, then filling in the gaps with Kareem Rush, Royal Ivey, Theo Ratliff and Donyell Marshall.
Stefanski also locked up two of his own, promising youngsters Lou Williams and Andre Iguodala, both integral pieces in last season's surprising playoff run.
Finally, when the smoke cleared and what remained looked like a darn good - maybe championship-level - Sixers squad, Stefanski made sure he kept his conductor: Cheeks.
Yesterday, the Sixers announced a contract extension for Cheeks, agreed to in principle but not yet signed.
Details were not released, but it is believed that the extension will keep Cheeks on the Sixers' sideline through 2010.
