For the 2009 offseason, the Sixers drafted UCLA point guard Jrue Holiday with the 17th pick. The Sixers also traded power forward Reggie Evans to the Toronto Raptors for three point specialist, small forward Jason Kapono, who had won back-to-back three-point shootouts in 2007 and 2008. This offseason also marked the return of the original 76ers logo, along with a redesigned court and new jerseys that take a modern spin on the old 1982-83 jerseys.
On December 2, 2009, the Philadelphia 76ers announced that they have signed Allen Iverson to a 1 year prorated 1.3 million dollar non-guaranteed contract. His second season debut with the Sixers was spoiled by the Nuggets, the team he was traded to in 2006 the same week of his return to Philadelphia. In the 93-83 loss, Iverson had 11 points, six assists, and five rebounds.
