    Apr 8, 2014, 5:02 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Nerlens Noel is eager to get back on the court but knows he has to wait until Summer League. No matter what he tweets.

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

    Apr 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    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.

  4. Looks like Nerlens Noel will play for Sixers… in Summer League. Not before.

    Apr 2, 2014, 1:48 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Nerlens Noel is not going to play for the Sixers this season, but they will have an interesting young team next season with him back and a couple lottery picks.

  5. Sixers snap 26-game losing streak with blowout win over Pistons

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:33 PM EST

    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.

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

    Mar 28, 2014, 11:44 AM EST

    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…

  8. Nerlens Noel targets April 4 for NBA debut against Celtics

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Sixers mum on if it’ll come to pass.

  9. 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 EST

    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…

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

    Mar 7, 2014, 12:46 PM EST

    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…

  11. Sixers’ losing streak now 11 games away from setting new NBA record

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:14 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks  v Philadelphia 76ers

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a game it was Jan. 29 in Boston. Since then the Sixers have lost 15 in a row, by an average of 19.8 points a game (a couple 40+ point losses skew that number). Coach Brett Brown is not sure his team will win another game this season…

  12. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out for season after surgery on tibia

    Feb 28, 2014, 5:54 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 27, 2014, 5:26 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:57 PM EST

    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…

  17. Report: Nerlens Noel cleared for basketball activity, could play for Sixers after All-Star break

    Jan 15, 2014, 4:14 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EST

    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…

  19. Nerlens Noel says he might come back this season

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:01 PM EST

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    I still wouldn’t bet on it. Smart money is last year’s first round pick Nerlens Noel will sit out this entire season recovering from an ACL injury, there is no reason for Philadelphia to rush him. That’s been the accepted wisdom. However, when Noel was interviewed on SiriusXM NBA Radio with hosts Jason Goff and…

  20. Don’t think Andrew Wiggins is a lock as No. 1 pick. He’s not.

    Nov 13, 2013, 12:44 PM EST

    Andrew Wiggins

    We’ve blown him up — when you talk about NBA teams taking this season we call it “riggin for Wiggins.” As in Andrew Wiggins, the Kansas freshman who had 22 points and 10 boards, plus played some good defense, in leading his team past Duke Tuesday night. Wiggins is atop every serious mock draft right…

  21. Sixers completely rebuilding Nerlens Noel’s shot

    Nov 6, 2013, 10:41 AM EST

    Nerlens Noel

    We’re not likely to see a potentially fun Michael Carter-Williams/Nerlens Noel pairing until next season — Noel is expected to miss this entire season recovering from ACL surgery he suffered at Kentucky last year. But the Sixers are not wasting that down time — they are completely rebuilding his shot. With a full year to…

  22. Evan Turner says ‘Hinkie is not my GM’ after failing to receive a contract extension from Sixers

    Nov 2, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    Evan Turner is one of three players remaining on the rebuilding Sixers roster who are talented enough to have some trade value on the open market. Along with Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young, it’s even likely that if an offer of young assets or future draft picks should come along, one or all three players…

  23. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New Orleans Pelicans

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Anthony Davis

    Last season: New Orleans final season as the Hornets wasn’t pretty. Eric Gordon was out much of the year, Anthony Davis showed promise but looked like a rookie at times, Austin Rivers looked like a mistake, they blew a 25-point lead to the Lakers, and they ended the season with 27 wins without even a…

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

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:50 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:22 PM EST

    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,…
