From Comcast SportsNetASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says he has a torn ligament on the bottom of his right foot and he's hoping to avoid surgery.Garcon described the injury that's sidelined him for four of Washington's past six games as a "plantar plate tear" near his second toe. The plantar plate is a ligament that holds a toe in its joint.Garcon said Thursday that "surgery is an option" that probably would end his season, adding: "But we don't really want to think about that at all."He visited a foot specialist Wednesday.Garcon only has eight catches for 153 yards this season, his first with the Redskins after signing a 42.5 million, five-year contract as a free agent.
With the ninth pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select ... Andre Iguodala.
The 76ers are captivated by a potential reunion with the soon-to-be free agent, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and Iguodala?
Iguodala spent the first eight seasons of his career in Philly.
He averaged 15.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 steals over 615 games (all starts).
In 2012 -- his final season with the 76ers -- he was an All-Star.
In August 2012, Iguodala was traded to Denver.
After the Nuggets lost to the Warriors in the playoffs in 2013, he landed with the Warriors.
According to ESPN's report, the 76ers are one of seven teams -- Timberwolves, Spurs, Clippers, Magic, Nets, Jazz -- interested in Iguodala.
The 2015 Finals MVP will turn 34 years old in January.
"Business is business so you gotta do your due diligence. And I'll let my people do their thing, see how that goes. The Bay has been special to me, so you always have your perfect situation and hopefully that gets done.
"I'm gonna let my people do their job. And I just want everybody to be respectful of that and not get too emotional about it because I've been getting hit up crazy and I haven't said anything."
Iguodala has earned over $120 million in his career.
There absolutely is a market for Iguodala. I also still believe he very much wants to stay with the Warriors. He'll have a decision to make.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) June 27, 2017
I'll repeat that I've heard that the trickiest area of negotiations with the Warriors involve # of guaranteed years.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) June 27, 2017
