  1. Extra Pass: How Brett Brown and his 76ers have embraced their youth

    Apr 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    Special film study, top-to-bottom roster changes and old players who aren’t really old define Philadelphia’s season.

  2. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  3. Pacers trade Danny Granger to Sixers for Evan Turner

    Feb 20, 2014, 4:12 PM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    It was a lackluster NBA trade deadline by any reasonable standard, and once 3 p.m. Eastern had come and gone, there was nothing of note that went down that would improve any of the contending teams significantly. It wasn’t until more than 30 minutes after the deadline had passed that we found out about the…

  4. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  5. 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…

  6. League warns Chris Paul, Anderson Varejao for flopping

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    You had to know it was only a matter of time before Chris Paul got a flopping warning, the only question was when. How about eight games? Tuesday the league announced warnings for both the Clippers Paul and Anderson Varejao of the Cavaliers. These are the first offense this season warnings for the players, the…

  7. 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…

  8. Coach says Sixers’ Nerlens Noel likely out for season

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    This shouldn’t be a shock, it’s rather a logical extension of the 76ers long-term plans and their rather painful experience with Andrew Bynum last year. But it still is a little jarring to hear it. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said Monday before the 76ers preseason game that Nerlens Noel likely will miss the entire season,…

  9. Lavoy Allen oversleeps, misses Sixers practice

    Oct 19, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Lavoy Allen, Chris Andersen

    It’s going to be a long season in Philadelphia. When factoring in injuries, the roster features one of the worst overall collections of NBA talent that we’ve seen in quite some time; it could be argued fairly easily that an expansion team would have better luck putting together a squad capable of winning more games…

  10. Sixers sign Daniel Orton for rest of training camp

    Oct 16, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    ORTON_DANIEL

    The Philadelphia 76ers are trying to find any kind of big man rotation that might work. And by might work I mean be better than the Kentucky front line, not actually win the Sixers a bunch of games. We shouldn’t sell the solid Spencer Hawes short, and if he eventually pairs with a healthy Nerlens…

  11. Sixers’ coach Brown wants Lavoy Allen to lose 8-10 pounds

    Oct 14, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Lavoy Allen

    Last season, then Sixers coach Doug Collins was constantly asking for more energy, more consistent effort out of Lavoy Allen. By the end of the season Allen had faded from Collins’ rotation and it felt like a lost season. This preseason Allen has been slowed by a knee injury, but as he works his way…

  12. Sixers’ Arnett Moultrie out until January after ankle surgery

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Arnett Moultrie, Ben Gordon

    Following up on a rookie season where he played pretty well in a very limited role, Arnett Moultrie was going to get his chance at the start of the year to prove he could be key to the rebuilding Sixers, getting big minutes at the four. Now he is out until the new year following…

  13. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Heat continue streaking, Harden hits the game-winner to beat the Spurs

    Mar 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Houston Rockets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching FGCU celebrate their trip to the Sweet 16 a thousand times. Nets 102, Suns 100: The Nets were without Joe Johnson in this one, but early in the third quarter, when Brooklyn had increased its lead to 16 points, it seemed…

  15. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

  16. The 76ers roster could see a lot more shakeups

    Aug 20, 2012, 4:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Philadelphia has gone another direction — Andre Iguodala is out, Andrew Bynum is in as the new face of the franchise. The young, anchor center who has Philly talking about something other than the Eagles. Well, for five minutes. The idea is to sell hope in Philly and build on a young core of Bynum,…

  17. One trade to watch for: Philly moving a big man (not Bynum)

    Aug 14, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    Philadelphia had their big man rotation set. Coach Doug Collins said Kwame Brown was going to be the starter. (Why? Because he felt his blood pressure was too low.), There were also Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen on the roster to play the five, plus the Sixers just drafted 6’11” power forward Arnett Moultrie. But…

  18. 25 Observations about the Dwight Howard trade

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    25 observations about the Dwight Howard trade to send Howard to the Lakers, Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets, Andrew Bynum to the Sixers, and very little to the Orlando Magic. 1. Let’s start with LA, since they’re the moneymaker for media and they get the best player. Wow. Holy Wow. Holy Geez Wow. The amount…

  19. Lavoy Allen’s not conceding the starting gig yet, no matter what coach Collins says

    Aug 5, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics - Game Five

    Lavoy Allen made a name for himself in the playoffs last year as “The KG Stopper.” He did a phenomenal job against Garnett, who had been dominant in the playoffs up until that point. Naturally, Doug Collins went away from Allen and played Spencer Hawes for longer stretches, despite Garnett taking Hawes’ lunch money and…

  20. Report: Undrafted Maalik Wayns signs deal with 76ers

    Jul 30, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Big East Basketball Tournament - Villanova v Rutgers

    For a guy who grew up in Philadelphia then played his college ball at Villanova, signing with the 76ers would be a dream come true. That’s what the undrafted Maalik Wayns has done, according to the Times Herald. A source confirmed Saturday that Wayns has agreed to a free-agent deal with the 76ers. The deal…

  21. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  22. Free Agency Rundown 7.1.12: The movers, they are a shaking

    Jul 1, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Here’s what’s going on with free agency news and rumors as the moratorium period began Sunday night at 12:01 a.m..Do not, by any means, consider this comprehensive. There’s so much going on, we’re just trying to get you an overview. (HT: Hoopshype, IAmAGM.com) Atlanta Hawks Well, for starters, they’re exploring a deal for Joe Johnson…

  23. Boston vs. Philadelphia Game 7: First team to 80 wins?

    May 26, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rondo drives to the basket past Philadelphia 76ers guard Turner during the first quarter of Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    Game 7. It’s usually when even veterans get tight, playing like they are afraid to make a mistake. It means in Game 7 the offensive numbers plummet — but I don’t know that they can much more in Boston vs. Philadelphia. This has been a series about which team could find enough offense against a…

  24. Celtics, Sixers try to woo fickle lady momentum in Game 5

    May 21, 2012, 4:36 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    What part of Game 4 will we see repeated in Game 5? The start where the Celtics looked poised and crisp and raced out to a 14 point lead? Or the second half where the Sixers dominated the offensive glass, got fantastic bench play from Lavoy Allen (guarding Kevin Garnett) and Thaddeus Young, they had…
