Sixers and Lavoy Allen Agree to Two Year Deal

Oh…so a couple of days after hearing that Allen was given a qualifying offer, we now hear the Sixers want him on for 2 years. Mr. Wojnarowski, take it away!:

The Philadelphia 76ers have reached an agreement in principle with center Lavoy Allen on a two-year, $6 million contract, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Yup. Over. Paid. It’s not going to kill the bank. But, I really don’t think a few okay, perhaps good, games in the playoffs equals $6 million over two years. I’m more nervous now about what would happen if the Sixers decided to, say, sign Jamal Crawford. Oh. No.

Seriously, Allen was overpaid. I mean, it’s not that bad, but the qualifying offer of slightly less than $1 million was better suited for him, I would think. I like Allen; I do. But, I’m not feeling too good with that contract. We’ll see if he lives up to it.
