/ July 2, 2004

Philadelphia 76ers President and General Manager Billy King announced today that the Sixers have signed 2004 NBA Draft selection, Andre Iguodala, to a contract. Per team policy, terms are not released.

Iguodala, the ninth pick overall pick in the Draft, was an early entry candidate this year. He played two seasons at the University of Arizona and was an All-Pac 10 honoree with averages of 12.9 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 4.9 assists in his final campaign as a Wildcat sophomore (2004). He was the only player in the Pac-10 to rank in the top 20 in scoring and rebounding, and top 10 in assists, steals, and assist-to-turnover ratio.

The 6-foot-6, 207-pound native of Springfield, Ill., posted career averages of 9.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists. Additionally, he had 10 career double-doubles and three triple-doubles.

Also announced today is that the Sixers have hired Joe Gallagher as his assistant coach, completing a staff that includes associate head coach Lester Conner, and assistants Dick Harter and Frank Vogel.

Gallagher joins the Sixers after serving as an assistant coach for the last two seasons with the Boston Celtics, spending over one season with O'Brien in Boston.

"Joe is an outstanding teacher of the game. He is especially an excellent Big Man Coach," O'Brien said. "I have known Joe for years and was an assistant coach for him at Pembroke State. We are very happy to have him aboard."

Gallagher brings over 29 years of collegiate coaching experience, including six years as a head coach at Methodist College (1973-75), Pembroke State (1975-78) and Belmont Abbey College (1991-92), to the Sixers coaching staff. Additionally, Gallagher has served as an assistant coach at the University of Richmond (1979-86 and 1992-96), Boston College (1986-91), UNC Greensboro (1996-99) and Campbell University (1999-2002).

A 1958 graduate of Pembroke State University (currently UNC-Pembroke), Gallagher was named Dixie Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year each of his two seasons at then NAIA-member Methodist.

A Philadelphia native, Gallagher attended Lincoln Preparatory School and was a 1958 graduate of Pembroke State. He posted four-year averages of 20.1 points and 13.3 rebounds per game, and was honored by his collegiate alma mater in 1980 with an induction into the school's Hall of Fame and No. 24 jersey retirement.
