The Sixers were looking to snap their 12-game losing streak last night as they hosted the Orlando Magic. Unfortunately, Nikola Vucevic (21 points, 13 rebounds), Victor Oladipo (17 points, 11 rebounds), and Jameer Nelson (16 points, 12 assists) all posted double-doubles for the Magic and they cruised to a 101-90 victory. The Sixers dropped their 12th straight game at the Wells Fargo Center. More here.
The Eagles have agreed to a five-year extension worth $51.3 million with $19.55 million guaranteed with Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters. He ruptured his Achilles tendon in 2012 but came back healthy in 2013 to earn a selection to the 2014 Pro Bowl. More here.
The Sixers and Danny Granger have reached a buyout agreement. The buyout sacrifices Granger's Bird rights with the Sixers which would allow the Sixers to sign one of their own players (in this case: Granger) while going over the salary cap. It would also help the Sixers in a sign-and-trade this summer but Granger wants to play for a winner. More here.
The Eagles are close to agreeing to a new "multi-year" contract with wide receiver Riley Cooper. The deal could be agreed upon and announced within the next few days as Cooper is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 11th. More here.
The Eagles are expected to lock up center Jason Kelce to a "long-term deal sometime in the near future." The announcement of a deal could come as early as Thursday morning with a formal press conference in the afternoon. More here.
