Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Nerlens Noel says he’s feeling like his old self, still no timetable

    Sep 18, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    The Philadelphia 76ers are not going to rush Nerlens Noel back on the court. More like the opposite. They are not in it for winning this season, they are in for the long haul and the lottery, which is why they took on Noel in a trade for Jrue Holiday — Noel has a high…

  2. Stern on Sixers: I hope they make the playoffs (and miss out on lottery)

    Sep 17, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Philadelphia is one of several that are going bad to get good. Call it the Oklahoma City method, call it tanking, call it “winless for Wiggins,” call it whatever you like — the fact is this is one of the deepest drafts in a decade next summer and teams will be finding ways to lose…

  3. Grizzlies GM says Derrick Rose helped influence Pau Gasol trade

    Sep 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rose Calipari Memphis

    Back in 2008, when Memphis traded Pau Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, Aaron McKie and the rights to an untested European player in Marc Gasol, Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace was ripped by seemingly everyone. It was said he got nothing for giving up an elite player such as Gasol (who instantly…

  4. Report: Nerlens Noel to sign shoe deal with Reebok

    Sep 13, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    The conventional wisdom is big men don’t sell shoes, attacking perimeter do — Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Derrick Rose. But Nerlens Noel, the center out of Kentucky who will play with the Sixers once he gets healthy (remember the knee injury last season) thinks he can be the exception to the rule. Noel…

  5. Khalif Wyatt agrees to partially-guaranteed deal with Sixers

    Sep 13, 2013, 12:04 AM EDT

    Temple v Indiana

    Khalif Wyatt, an undrafted rookie out of Temple University, has agreed to a partially-guaranteed deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. From Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer (via CSN Philly): He will sign a partially guaranteed, mutli-year contract on Friday. The guard will be on the team’s roster when it opens the season against the Miami Heat on…

  6. Damien Wilkins has free agent workouts with Spurs, Hawks

    Sep 12, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Luke Walton, Damien Wilkins

    Damien Wilkins has played nine NBA seasons, and just finished his best statistical year in his past five with the Sixers last year. Wilkins is looking for a home for next season, however, and has had received interest from at least two teams recently. From RealGM: Free agent Damien Wilkins has been working out for his…

  8. 76ers sign Darius Morris, he is likely to make squad

    Sep 12, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Darius Morris

    Darius Morris couldn’t crack Mike D’Antoni’s tight rotation last season with the Lakers. He played sparingly until injuries in the playoffs forced D’Antoni’s hand and Morris started Game 3 against the Spurs in the first round. Morris put up 24 points (on just 15 shots) and had six assists, but he got torched at the…

  11. 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…

  12. Royce White might not be wanted in Philadelphia

    Aug 31, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Rockets White Basketball

    The Philadelphia 76ers traded for Royce White in early July, sending just “future considerations” to the Houston Rockets in order to acquire the 2012 first-round pick and Turkish prospect Furkan Aldemir. It turns out that the little-known Aldemir, not the embattled White, was apparently the object of the Sixers’ affection. It made sense for new…

  13. Don’t be surprised if Jason Richardson misses entire season

    Aug 30, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    Jason Richardson

    Not that the Sixers were really counting on him this season — they have their plan to get good through being bad in place — but just be sure you don’t pick up Jason Richardson on your fantasy team to start the season. Richardson was out last February for the season after his knee injury…

  14. Wall, Sanders got their rookie extensions, what about the other rookies?

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    John Wall will be with the Wizards for five more seasons, making $80 million. Larry Sanders will be with Milwaukee for four more years, $44 million. Those are the first two extensions to the rookie deals out of the 2010 draft. They were both expected and both got done early — teams have until Oct.…

  15. Sixers GM Hinkie talks about search for coach, reaching out to fans

    Aug 30, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    It’s not just Charles Barkley who is confused. There are fans in Philadelphia who heard little out of the organization while 12 other NBA coaches were hired and wondered what was going on. They watched the team’s popular All-Star point guard get traded away to usher in another rebuilding effort. They know they’re in for…

  16. Charles Barkley continues to rip Sixers offseason strategy

    Aug 29, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Charles Barkley

    We get it that Charles Barkley doesn’t get it. The Hall of Fame forward often associated with his Philadelphia years has been the most prominent critic of the Sixers off-season strategies — ripping apart the roster go get bad and particularly GM Sam Hinkie taking a long time to hire Brett Brown as coach (remember…

  17. Royce White helps open mental health center in Houston

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White has been clear from the start that he wanted to help change the perception of people battling mental illness. He was the No. 16 pick by the Houston Rockets in the 2012 draft but the potential point forward (he had those kinds of skills coming out of college) has never played a second…

  19. Kelly Olynyk, C.J. McCollum fare well in annual rookie survey

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    We already told you that when asked during the rookie photo shoot who their favorite player in the league was, the majority of incoming NBA players said Kobe Bryant. But those rookies to be were asked a lot more, too — and it was the Celtics Kelly Olynyk and the Trail Blazers’ C.J. McCollum who…

  20. Royal Ivey to work out with Rockets, Spurs

    Aug 25, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Royal Ivey, Randy Foye

    Teams are now in the “who should we get for roster spot 13/14/15” mode, looking at names you know but will have little impact during the season. Names such as Royal Ivey, who has been in the NBA for nine seasons and spent the last one in Philadelphia, where he averaged 3.2 points a game…

  21. Sixers need to add $10 million in salary to make minimum

    Aug 23, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    We talk a lot about the salary cap and luxury tax on this site, the numbers farther up the NBA play ladder, but there is a floor, too — teams need to have at least 90 percent of the salary cap filled, or $52.81 million on the books this season. With the addition of Tony…

  22. Report: Grizzlies trade Tony Wroten to Sixers for picks

    Aug 22, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    Tony Wroten is a guy whose game has started to mature the more you watched him — he showed flashes at Summer League in Las Vegas this year, putting up some nice games (23 points one night) and setting guys up. But he’s still not an efficient shooter, he still turns the ball over a…

  23. Blake Griffin gets in on the highlights at Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am in Seattle (VIDEO)

    Aug 18, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    First it was Kevin Durant and Spencer Hawes (seriously), and then it was Kyrie Irving, all showing out at Jamal Crawford‘s Pro-Am league in Seattle. On Saturday, it was Blake Griffin‘s turn. In terms of sick highlights and pure entertainment value, this probably doesn’t surpass what we saw Kyrie do a day earlier. But Griffin can…

  24. New head coach Brett Brown assures Evan Turner that Sixers won’t be trying to lose on purpose

    Aug 17, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It has to be discouraging to players already in place on a team’s roster to see it essentially gutted and left with mostly rookies and minimum salary players in advance of the upcoming season. That’s what Sixers guard Evan Turner is going through this summer. After starting all 82 games for Philadelphia last year alongside…

    Plenty of stars have been rolling through Jamal Crawford‘s Pro-Am league in Seattle this summer. We’ve already seen Kevin Durant and Spencer Hawes (!) put up some big numbers, and Kyrie Irving took his turn on Friday. This highlight reel showcases everything special about Irving’s game — from the sick handles to the no-look passes…
