Free agency

The Sixers headed into the off-season with free agents Royal Ivey, Donyell Marshall, Andre Miller, Theo Ratliff and Kareem Rush.

On June 15 Royal Ivey declined his player option with the team and Ivey became an unrestricted free agent.[6]

After almost a month of contract negotiations with Andre Miller, the Sixers withdrew their contract offer and Miller then went on to sign with the Portland Trail Blazers on July 24.[2][3] Veteran center Theo Ratliff signed with the San Antonio Spurs on the same day.[7]

It was confirmed on August 6 that the Sixers would not re-sign Donyell Marshall by Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski and the player's agent.[8]

On August 4 it was announced that the Sixers had come to terms on a one year contract with Yugoslavian born center Primoz Brezec. Brezec last played in the NBA during the 2007-08 season with the Toronto Raptors.[9]

After Royal Ivey had declined his player option on June 15, it was announced on August 10 by the Sixers that they had come to terms with free agent guard Royal Ivey.[6]

On September 15 the Sixers signed free agent swingman Rodney Carney to a contract. Carney previously played with the Sixers from 2006 to 2008, but was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves before the start of the 2008-09 season.[10]
