    Sixers avoid setting the all-time record for consecutive losses in a season, and remain firmly committed to the rebuilding plan that was set in motion last summer.

  3. Sixers tie NBA record with 26th consecutive loss, this one at hands of Rockets

    Mar 27, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

  4. Clippers embarrass Sixers, coast to 45-point win

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:44 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers won by 45 and it wasn’t that close. Seriously. Sunday night was just a perfect storm of everything going right for the Clippers and everything going wrong for the Sixers. This was a game where the Clippers were ahead 100-51 after three quarters and went on to win 123-78. Here are…

    Thaddeus Young

    The Sixers only have 10 wins on the season, but two of them have come in their last two games after losing nine of 10. They scored 44 points in the second quarter in Denver to help get this one, and Thaddeus Young came up with this high-basketball-IQ play in the third, when he rebounded…

  6. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  7. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about them Sixers?

    Nov 14, 2013, 2:19 AM EDT

    James Anderson

    Our grades from Wednesday around the NBA, or what you missed while watching a man attack a taxi with a didgeridoo…  Tony Wroten, Philadelphia 76ers. Rookie sensation Michael Carter-Williams was out and Wroten got thrown in the fire with his first ever start against Houston — and he responded with a triple double. Wroten finished…

  8. Brett Brown: 76ers’ have just six NBA players

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Brett Brown, Daniel Orton

    Many advanced stats, in basketball and other sports, rely on a concept called a replacement player. A replacement player is a hypothetical player who can easily be obtained to fill out the roster. In his definition of an NBA replacement player, Kevin Pelton says a team of replacement players would win 10 games in a…

  9. Philadelphia 76ers will likely bring 20 players to training camp

    Aug 31, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    Khalif Wyatt, Christian Watford

    The Philadelphia 76ers currently have 14 players listed on their roster, though it sounds as though there will be a few more new faces on the team when training camp gets started. As in at least six new faces because new general manager Sam Hinkie would like to take 20 players to training camp and…

  10. 76ers finally ready to enter free-agent marketplace

    Aug 2, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    The 76ers, for my money, had one of the best offseasons in the NBA. Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick was a great trade, one that gave Philadelphia clear direction. In their rebuilding efforts, the 76ers made a few other small moves: drafting Michael Carter-Williams, trading for Royce White and Furkan…

  11. 76ers claim a couple former Rockets off waivers

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    James Anderson, Quincy Pondexter

    Sam Hinkie is turning the 76ers into the Rockets of the East. The former Houston executive vice president of basketball operations and new Philadelphia general manager already traded for Royce White and Furkan Aldemir. Now, Hinkie is adding two more Rockets. CSN Philly: A league source has informed CSNPhilly.com’s Dei Lynam that the Sixers have…

  12. Dwight Howard signing just the beginning for Rockets

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Darryl Morey has done the hardest job, getting Dwight Howard to sign with the Rockets. Now the Houston general manager has even more moves ahead. The Rockets don’t have cap room to give Howard a max contract, so Morey must either convince Howard to take less money, arrange a sign-and-trade with the Lakers or change…

  13. Rockets don’t have enough cap room to give Dwight Howard a max contract

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Patrick Beverly attempts to steal the ball from Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets do not have enough cap room to give Dwight Howard a max contract. They could waive all four of their players with fully unguaranteed contracts – Greg Smith, Patrick Beverley,Tim Ohlbrecht and James Anderson – and they still wouldn’t have enough cap room. If Howard chooses Houston, perhaps as early as today, the…

  14. Report: Rockets trying to land Dwight Howard AND Josh Smith

    Jul 3, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard wants the Rockets to add a third star, and Josh Smith is Houston’s backup plan to Howard. It was only a matter of time until these plans merged. Sam Amick of USA Today: According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Rockets’ Monday meeting with free agent forward Josh Smith in…

    When looking at the names in the headline, the more casual NBA fan may not have been enticed enough to click through and check out the highlight. Oh, what a mistake that would have been. If you’ve gotten this far, then you’re fortunate enough to have seen one of the more incredible plays of Saturday…

  16. Rockets waive Daequan Cook to sign James Anderson

    Jan 1, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    ANDERSON_JAMES

    The Houston Rockets are switching up their swingmen buried on the bench (in hopes the new one is not going to be so buried). The Rockets have waived Daequan Cook to sign free agent James Anderson, reports the Houston Chronicle. They didn’t get it done in time for Monday night’s game but they will by…

  17. Timberwolves sign Lazar Hayward to add depth

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Hayward_Lazar

    When teams are looking for guys to provide some depth but not really play much, GMs tend to go with the guys they know over the unknown. Hence, the Minnesota Timberwolves are bringing back Lazar Hayward, the team announced on twitter. Hayward played 42 games with the Timberwolves two seasons ago, then hung out on…

  18. Royce White refusing assignment to D-League. Ugh.

    Dec 30, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    Royce White

    For a second time this season, the Houston Rockets have assigned Royce White — the No. 16 overall pick from the last draft — to their D-League team. And for the second time he has refused the assignment. And from here it’s just hard to see him ever playing a moment for the Rockets. After…

  19. That was quick: Spurs recall Kawhi Leonard from D-League

    Dec 20, 2012, 3:52 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    I love that NBA teams are starting to use the D-League like a real minor league, like MLB teams use their farm clubs. For things like rehab assignments after injury. Which is what the Spurs did with Kawhi Leonard, sending him down to the Austin Toros. But it only lasted 24 hours as they have…

  20. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  21. James Anderson is apparently going to be a Hawk

    Aug 25, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    James Anderson, Vince Carter, Garret Siler

    There were high hopes for James Anderson with the Spurs when he was drafted, but he just never could fit. Not everyone can mesh with the Spurs’ approach, and it’s hard to see whether it’s a talent or fit issue, though there are certainly considerable gaps in his game. And as a free agent, it…

  22. Report: Spurs James Anderson requests trade

    Feb 21, 2012, 8:59 AM EDT

    James Anderson, Vince Carter, Garret Siler

    James Anderson is not getting a lot of run from Gregg Popovich in San Antonio right now, he has pretty much slipped to the back of the rotation. Monday night he played 7:35 and had five points for the Spurs. So the guard wants out, reports Buck Harvey, columnist with the Express-News on twitter. Sources…

  23. Spurs decline third-year option on James Anderson

    Jan 28, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, James Anderson

    Although the final public analysis of any NBA roster move is usually distilled to a few lines of explanation, every single decision that an NBA front office makes is a complicated one. Salary, fit, production, potential, age, redundancy, personality, character, experience, flexibility — all of these factors — and more — come into play, and…

  24. Manu Ginobili suffers broken hand, out indefinitely

    Jan 3, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Manu Ginobil broke a bone in his left hand during the Spurs’ 106-96 loss to the Timberwolves on Monday, and there is no timetable set for his return according to a team release. Just as a reminder, Ginobili is left handed, so this is his shooting hand. Ginobili suffered the injury on a defensive play,…

  25. Josh Howard fined $25,000 for flagrant foul against Spurs

    Jan 2, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    Josh Howard Jazz

    Late in the third quarter Saturday night Jazz forward Josh Howard put the hard foul on James Anderson of the Spurs. That got him a flagrant foul at the time. Stu Jackson at the league office looked more closely at it and decided Howard deserved a flagrant two and a $25,000 fine on top of…
