PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia 76ers re-signed Andre Iguodala on Sunday, giving the forward a six-year contract worth a reported $80 million.
Iguodala, who was a restricted free agent, helped the 76ers reach the playoffs for the first time in three years. An official announcement is expected Monday.
Iguodala averaged 19.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 2.1 steals in 82 games last season. He struggled in the playoffs against Detroit, averaging 13.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.0 assists.
The 24-year-old Iguodala could've played this season under terms of a $3.8 million, one-year qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next year.
Retaining Iguodala was a top priority for Philadelphia, which lured two-time All-Star forward Elton Brand away from the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this summer.
Selected with the ninth overall pick in the first round of the 2004 NBA draft, Iguodala has averaged 14.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists in his career. He's also been durable, missing just six games in four years.
