76ers reserve guard Royal Ivey yesterday declined the player option on his contract for the 2009-10 season, joining point guard Andre Miller as an unrestricted free agent.
Sixers president and general manager Ed Stefanski announced Ivey's decision in a news release but did not respond to a request for further comment.
Ivey's agent, Keith Glass, did not immediately return calls.
Ivey's decision means both he and Miller can sign with any team when NBA free agency begins July 1.
Stefanski has said the team would attempt to re-sign Miller but would have no indication of the team's chances until the opening of free agency.
