4 76ers players who hurt their contract value in 2023-24

3. Robert Covington

Another veteran whose shot at a lofty payday is looking grim is Robert Covington, who is currently sidelined for the 76ers due to injury. The 11-year veteran, who came over from the LA Clippers in the James Harden deal, has had a relatively minimal role for Philly when healthy, netting a career-low 16.1 minutes per outing in just 26 appearances this season.

While the defensive metrics still attest to Covington’s persistence as an instant defensive siege, the former All-Defensive Team cager offers little else, especially offensively. His volume three-point shooting, which was once his bread and butter, has effectively morphed into a part-time refuge of his.

The 33-year-old is still a near-guarantee to be on an NBA roster next season by virtue of his experience and defensive prowess, especially as a patrol defender, but his lack of offensive acuity and waning availability similar makes him a near-lock to make much less than his previous eight-figure annual salary.
