Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Sixers improve to 3-0 with comeback win over Bulls

    Nov 2, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Michael Carter-Williams

    This is not at all how this was supposed to happen in Philadelphia this season. But after three games and three wins, it’s moved beyond a fluke occurrence and is now becoming a story. The Sixers beat the Bulls 107-104 on Saturday to improve their undefeated record to 3-0 on the season. Chicago and Miami…

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

    Nov 2, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    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…

  3. John Wall crosses up Michael Carter-Williams on the break (VIDEO)

    Nov 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    John Wall

    Michael Carter-Williams had a stunning debut for the Sixers in their season-opening win over the Heat, finishing with 22 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists, and nine steals. John Wall of the Wizards seemed determined to let the rookie know how far he has to go reach his level on Friday, when he poured in 15 first…

  4. Friday Night NBA Grades: What tanking? Sixers, Suns both 2-0.

    Nov 2, 2013, 2:26 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that cat urine smell out of your computer…. Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers. Something funny happened on the way to the lottery… the Sixers and Suns, two of the poster teams for the tanking/riggin’ for Wiggins efforts, are both…

  5. PBT Extra: What’s with all the early upsets? Who is legit on these teams?

    Oct 31, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    It’s been a funky, upset-heavy opening to the NBA season: Philly over Miami, the Lakers over the Clippers and the Suns won their opener as well. What is going on? Matt Stroup of Rotoworld and I talk if these teams can keep it up, and what players impressed us on the first couple nights of…

  6. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  7. Michael Carter-Williams’ monster first quarter (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 2:42 AM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    This is a league where water bug point guards who flit around, find a way into the paint and then score among the trees in the paint are the guys driving the game. Michael Carter-Williams is 6’6″ — the kind of tall point guard Phil Jackson would love. Actually, any coach would love Carter-Williams the…

  8. Sixers pull off stunning upset, open season with win over Heat

    Oct 30, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

    Heat 76ers Basketball

    The Sixers were tabbed by most to be the worst team in the league this year, and no one expected it to be that close. The team’s own head coach said he only thought Philadelphia was fielding six NBA-caliber players, but that was enough at least for one night. Philadelphia caught the defending champion Heat…

  9. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  10. Thad Young well aware of possibility Sixers could trade him this season

    Oct 27, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Thaddeus young

    Sixers head coach Brett Brown said earlier this week that his team — the guys who are actually healthy enough to play this season — consists of just six NBA players. Three of those are veterans, and all are possible candidates to be traded before the season is through. Thaddeus Young, Spencer Hawes, and Evan…

  11. Sixers’ Evan Turner takes to Instagram to clarify unflattering quote

    Oct 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Evan Turner

    Evan Turner started all 82 games for the Sixers last season, and hasn’t known another franchise during his three years in the NBA. With Philadelphia in a full-fledged rebuilding mode, Turner was quoted as saying something that wouldn’t come across as being all that flattering if it were to be read in print without context.…

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

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    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…

  13. Philadelphia waives Royce White, among others

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:47 PM EDT

    Royce White

    When the Sixers traded for Royce White back in July — surrendering the draft rights to international prospect Furkan Aldemir, future considerations and cash — there was some buzz around the league the Sixers were more interested in Aldemir than White, who was just a salary. That appears to be the case. White was one…

  14. Thaddeus Young says Sixers can’t just roll over for 82 games

    Oct 24, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    It’s going to be hard to be a Philadelphia 76er this season. It’s no joy to be a fan of them this year, but the losing that everyone knows is coming will not be fun for coaches or players either. It can be tough to build good habits, a good work ethic in the midst…

  15. Ricky Rubio with bounce pass assist through Michael Carter-Williams’ legs (VIDEO)

    Oct 24, 2013, 9:21 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    We call that the nutmeg (don’t ask me, it’s a soccer thing we picked up on this side of the pond). Welcome to the NBA Michael Carter-Williams. That guy with the shaggy hair is Ricky Rubio. He’s a gifted passer with a sense of flair, and he just made the nifty little bounce pass between your…

  16. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Memphis Grizzlies

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Last season: After totaling up 56 wins in the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies got sweet revenge over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then extinguished a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder team before finally falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. This was the best season in franchise history by a large…

  17. Welcome to NBA Justin Holiday… you’re in Xavier Henry’s poster (VIDEO)

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    Xavier Henry

    Yes, he got posterized, but I think Utah’s  Justin Holiday deserves some credit here. He could have just let the Lakers Xavier Henry have his breakaway dunk, but Holiday decided to go challenge it instead. He was not just going to concede the bucket. Good for him, that’s what you want to see in a young…

  18. 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…

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

  20. Kyrie Irving crosses up Michael Carter-Williams then Evan Turner on same play (VIDEO)

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:28 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Evan Turner

    Kyrie Irving is just fun to watch… unless you are trying to defend him. Michael Carter-Williams and Evan Turner of the Sixers didn’t find it fun when Irving crossed both of them up on the same play in the Cavalier’s preseason win Monday night in Columbus. Remember Turner played at THE Ohio State so fans…

  21. 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,…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. Evan Turner isn’t worrying about contract extension he won’t get

    Oct 15, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    Evan Turner is not going to get an extension to his rookie contract, and frankly he shouldn’t (unless he’s willing to take a very small number). He hasn’t shown to be an effective or efficient scorer at the NBA level. He’s an NBA bench guy because he rebounds, passes and generally plays solid ball, but…

  25. 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…
