PHILADELPHIA -- More than $100,000 worth of jewelry belonging to newly acquired Sixers basketball player Joe Smith has been reported stolen.

The jewelry allegedly went missing from Smith's hotel room on City Line Avenue on Thursday.

Authorities say it was reported to hotel security just before the Sixers went on the road.

Philadelphia police are investigating.

Joe Smith recently arrived in Philadelphia following the trade that sent Allen Iverson to the Denver Nuggets.
