  1. PBT Roundtable: Who will win Rookie of the Year?

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: Who will win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award? Kurt Helin: There’s a formula to this — you need a guy with the ball in his hand on a bad team that is…

  2. Royce White expected to play for Sixers Friday

    Oct 10, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Call me skeptical, I want to see him out on the court, but we may see Royce White playing a little for Philadelphia this season. White could play his first game as a Sixer Friday, in a preseason game against the Celtics. At least that’s the plan, reports the Philadelphia Daily News. Originally the plan…

  3. Kevin Durant tells Sixers players how to deal with coming tanking

    Oct 7, 2013, 5:23 PM EDT

    Kevin-Durant seattle

    It’s going to suck to be a Philadelphia 76er player this season. And fans. But it’s not fun for the players, either. They are the poster franchise for “getting worse to get better” — or “woeful for Wiggins,” or organizational tanking, whatever term you prefer — and they may not break the 20-win barrier this…

  4. Evan Turner thought he’d be traded from Sixers this summer

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:13 PM EDT

    Evan Turner

    There’s no question that the Philadelphia 76ers are in the first year of a full-fledged rebuilding situation, with the franchise essentially starting from scratch. They have a new GM in Sam Hinkie, and didn’t even bother to hire a new head coach in Brett Brown until August — well after the draft had already taken…

  5. Royce White didn’t fly with Sixers to Europe

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Right now, the Philadelphia 76ers are in one of the world’s most interesting cities, Bilbao, Spain. From there they will travel on to Manchester, England, (which is kind of interesting) to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Royce White is not with them. White battles an general anxiety disorder — which has a number of…

  6. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

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

    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…

    Royce White

    Royce White was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets, but never played a single game for the team. White suffers from an anxiety disorder, the details of which he has no hesitation making public with very little prodding. It comes with it a fear of flying,…

  14. Brett Brown talks coaching style he brings to Philadelphia

    Sep 23, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown doesn’t have a lot to work with as coach of the Sixers this year. That is by design, new coach Sam Hinkie has taken the “get good by getting bad” strategy and they are all in for this year’s lottery. So what is Brett Brown going to try to do with this first…

  15. Seven collegiate 2013 second round draft picks have international contracts

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    Raptors Heat Basketball

    We have mentioned this before, the draft and stash is not just for European players anymore. Used to be a time when teams drafted a young Euro in the second round, let him develop overseas, then brought him over if and when he was ready. See Marc Gasol as a prime example. But now teams…

  16. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Last season: The 76ers went 34-48, the 11th time in the last 12 seasons they won between 33 and 48 games. They made the playoffs most seasons during that span, but they only one two postseason series. With the emergence of the NBA’s second-youngest All-Star last year, Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia seemed like it had a…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

    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…

  24. 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…
