  12. Brett Brown: Free agents don’t want to sign with 76ers, 76ers don’t want to sign free agents

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The Philadelphia 76ers’ rebuild is all about timing. Right now, they’re in the stage of acquiring elite young talent. They drafted Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel last summer, and as long as neither player is yet good enough to lift the 76ers from the NBA’s basement, Philadelphia is eyeing even more elite young talent. This…

  15. Sixers coach Brett Brown on whether we’ll see Nerlens Noel play this year: “It really is, ‘Who Knows?’”

    Mar 7, 2014, 10:34 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Nerlens Noel was selected with the sixth overall pick in last summer’s draft, and the Sixers traded Jrue Holiday for him in order to jumpstart their rebuilding process. But we have yet to see Noel take the floor for Philadelphia this season, in much the same way that Andrew Bynum missed his entire year with…

  16. Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown willing to accept ‘blemish’ of terrible record on his résumé

    Mar 7, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    No matter how his NBA head-coaching career unfolds, Brett Brown will always have a first-season losing record on his résumé. His 76ers will finish somewhere between 15-67 and 36-46 – likely much closer to the former. The 76ers struggling was no surprise. In fact, they’ve probably exceeded expectations. So why did Brown put himself in…

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    The Pelicans’ new look roster had potential — if all the new pieces could meld and Anthony Davis could start to blossom they would be a very interesting team the second half of the season. Injuries undid that dream — Ryan Anderson led a list of key Pelicans who have had to miss significant time…

  20. Daryl Morey calls Royce White arguably ‘the worst first-round pick ever’

    Jan 27, 2014, 5:26 PM EDT

    Royce White

    The Houston Rockets selected Royce White with the No. 16 pick in the 2012 draft. He spent a year with the Rockets while anxiety issues kept him from being with the team and was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, who cut him before this season began. At this point, it appears to be a huge…

  21. Steven Adams exactly the player, personality Oklahoma City Thunder need him to be

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:57 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    BOSTON – Steven Adams arrived at Notre Dame Prep, as his first American coach put it, “with a guitar and a knapsack.” Ryan Hurd, who coaches the Massachusetts basketball powerhouse, knew his team needed a center, and the highly touted Adams certainly was one. Otherwise, Hurd didn’t know what to expect from Adams, a mid-year…

    Jan 15, 2014, 4:14 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Despite earlier reports the team might have him sit out the season, it looks as if the Sixers could get Nerlens Noel on the court after the All-Star break. The Philadelphia rookie — picked up in a draft night trade sending Jrue Holiday to New Orleans — has been cleared for basketball activity, reports Jeff…

  24. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out indefinitely with stress fracture in leg

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    Ugh. The list of quality point guards currently out injured in the NBA includes Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Eric Bledsoe (even if he played some two guard)… And now Jrue Holiday. Pelicans starting point guard Holiday has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia and will be out…
