It's official. Charlie Manuel and the Phillie have agreed on a two-year extension.
“We are pleased to have come to terms with Charlie,” said Ruben Amaro Jr. in a statement. “He has been an integral part of the success we’ve had over the past several years. There was little doubt that he was going to continue to be our skipper past his current contract and we look forward to the next three years with the hopes of continued success.”
The NBA has determined a new date for the Sixers home game against the Kings, which was postponed on Nov. 30 because of unsafe playing conditions on the court.
The game has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. This will create back-to-backs for both teams.
The Sixers are playing in Chicago on Jan. 29. They will play consecutive games against the Bulls and Kings, then have a road back-to-back against the Mavericks and Spurs on Feb. 1 and 2.
The Kings will be on what is now an eight-game road trip. They will play a back-to-back against the Rockets the next night in Houston.
