Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Magic could have had, didn’t want Iguodala, either

    Aug 13, 2012, 4:28 PM EDT

    Iguodala of the U.S. is challenged by Australia's forward Ingles during their London 2012 Olympic Games men's quarterfinal basketball match in London

    A lot of people have been asking how the heck Orlando traded Dwight Howard and got a team that is going to be near the bottom of the NBA out of it. That was the plan. They want to be bad and use their own picks and the ones they traded for — plus the…

  2. Eleven guys who came out of London Olympics big winners

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    The USA is the big winner in London — in our “winner take all” society they won the gold medal, they get the spoils. And no doubt they were the best team in the games. But a number of players came out of London as winners in the reputation game. Eric Freeman nailed a great…

  3. Video: Jamal Crawford throws it down, Hawes can’t stop him

    Aug 13, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    You just expect Jamal Crawford to make big plays in the Jamal Crawford ProAm. I mean he created it and named it after himself and all. And you would not be disappointed. Crawford’s event is in Seattle and former Huskie Spencer Hawes was there. Hawes was back on defense and caught in this unfortunate fast…

  4. Big Lakers news! They signed Jodie Meeks! What did you guys think we were talking about?

    Aug 12, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    MEEKS_JODIE

    Just to review, the Los Angeles Lakers traded draft picks they’re not going to use or need for Steve Nash, and the second best center in the league, Andrew Bynum, for the best center in the league, Dwight Howard. And they upgraded their bench. The Los Angeles times reports that the Lakers have signed reserve…

  5. Westbrook suffers mild ankle sprain, will play in gold medal game

    Aug 11, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    UPDATE 9:56 am: Relax. Go back to drinking your morning coffee and not worry, Thunder and Team USA fans. The update on Westbrook is that he will go for Team USA Sunday in the gold medal game against Spain. Reports out of the Team USA camp are that he is “fine” and will play Sunday,…

  6. It’s official: League approves four-team deal, Howard a Laker

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Some Lakers fans were convinced David Stern was going to try to kill this blockbuster, balance changing trade. And you could bet if he really could have some owners (*cough*Mark Cuban*cough*) would have pressured him to do so. But the league had no real standing to block this trade — because it can be justified…

  7. 25 Observations about the Dwight Howard trade

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    25 observations about the Dwight Howard trade to send Howard to the Lakers, Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets, Andrew Bynum to the Sixers, and very little to the Orlando Magic. 1. Let’s start with LA, since they’re the moneymaker for media and they get the best player. Wow. Holy Wow. Holy Geez Wow. The amount…

  8. Doug Collins’ comments on trade of Iguodala for Bynum

    Aug 10, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    Doug Collins is in London as part of the NBC broadcast team coving the Olympics, specifically the semi-final games Friday (Russia vs. Spain, USA vs. Argentina). He’s also the coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, one of the four teams involved in the blockbuster Dwight Howard trade. The Sixers get former Lakers big man Andrew Bynum…

  9. Denver, Philadelphia, Iguodala all winners in blockbuster trade

    Aug 10, 2012, 2:16 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Yes, we’re calling this the Dwight Howard trade. And yes, the Lakers certainly come out of this winners. But two other teams in this blockbuster four-team trade did well for themselves — and it was a win for Andre Iguodala as well. It’s a win for Iggy and Denver because he is a better fit…

  10. Did the Lakers just become the NBA’s best team? Looks like it.

    Aug 10, 2012, 12:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Four years ago at the trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers made what was considered a blockbuster move — they traded a package centered around Marc Gasol (although at the time we thought it was Kwame Brown) for Pau Gasol. Pairing him with Kobe Bryant led the Lakers to three straight finals and two NBA…

  11. Report: Four-team deal sending Howard to Lakers finalized, awaits league approval

    Aug 9, 2012, 10:27 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Finally, Dwight Howard is being traded. A complex four-team trade that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers and Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets and involves the 76ers and Magic has been approved in principle by the teams and will go to the league for formal approval on Friday, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. Sources close…

  12. Report: Four-team Howard deal close… unless it is not

    Aug 9, 2012, 7:56 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    The Dwight Howard Tilt-A-Whirl started spinning again today and we all just want to get off. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard a complex four-team deal to ship Dwight Howard to the Lakers is “close.” A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is “very close” to happening and could be…

  13. Report: Four-team trade involving Howard to Lakers, Iguodala trade being discussed

    Aug 9, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    UPDATE 4:10 pm: Here’s a bit of an update on this complex blockbuster four-team Dwight Howard trade that illustrates how complex and potentially unlikely it is. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo: Orlando’s Jason Richardson has been significant name in 4-way talks too, sources tell Y! There’s a scenario where he goes with Howard to LA.…

  14. USA shouldn’t have much trouble with Australia to open medal round

    Aug 8, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Russell Westbrook,  Chris Paul

    The medal round. This is what we’ve been waiting for. When things get serious. Win and advance, lose and you go home. Three wins and you get a gold. The pressure is on now. Except, for the USA the first game of the medal round should be their easiest game in a week. The USA,…

  15. Jodie Meeks looking for more than veteran minimum deal

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:11 PM EDT

    Jodie Meeks, Mario Chalmers

    We’ve been saying this for a week now, we’ve reached the “hey, wait, I’m worth more than the veteran minimum” portion of the summer. Jodie Meeks, come on down, you’re next at the podium. Meeks, who started 50 games for the 76ers last season, is talking to the Lakers, reports the Los Angeles Times. However,…

  16. USA plays one good half, that’s enough to beat Argentina handily

    Aug 6, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    If the USA can play the next four games like they played the second half against Argentina, they will cruise to a gold medal. Let’s just forget about the six quarters before that, shall we? After a sloppy first half of the defensive end and a lot of three point shots, Team USA got it…

  17. Lavoy Allen’s not conceding the starting gig yet, no matter what coach Collins says

    Aug 5, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics - Game Five

    Lavoy Allen made a name for himself in the playoffs last year as “The KG Stopper.” He did a phenomenal job against Garnett, who had been dominant in the playoffs up until that point. Naturally, Doug Collins went away from Allen and played Spencer Hawes for longer stretches, despite Garnett taking Hawes’ lunch money and…

  18. Who is left in free agency? Here’s a list of the key names.

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We have made it through the bulk of free agency. Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few…

  20. Winderman: Despite Dwightmare, we’ve reached NBA slow season

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    In a non-Dwight year, this is when it tends to stop, in August. As an NBA executive recently explained, there tend to be four stages to the offseason when it comes to personnel moves: – The start of the free-agency period and the resulting immediate frenzy. – The period shortly thereafter when offer sheets are…

  21. John Wall sounds like he knows he needs to have a big year

    Aug 1, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    John Wall

    It’s time for John Wall. He came into the league as a No. 1 overall pick with the promise that he could be one of those few and hard to find true franchise anchor players in the NBA. That he could be a guy who changed the fortune of a franchise for a decade or…

  23. Report: Sixers will not be trading Iguodala this summer

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    For a guy who is an All-Star and Olympian, Andre Iguodala’s name sure shows up in trade rumors a lot. And there are plenty of people in Philadelphia more than happy to ship him out of town, for reasons I frankly don’t totally understand. It’s not happening, anyway. At least not in the near future.…

  24. Report: Undrafted Maalik Wayns signs deal with 76ers

    Jul 30, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Big East Basketball Tournament - Villanova v Rutgers

    For a guy who grew up in Philadelphia then played his college ball at Villanova, signing with the 76ers would be a dream come true. That’s what the undrafted Maalik Wayns has done, according to the Times Herald. A source confirmed Saturday that Wayns has agreed to a free-agent deal with the 76ers. The deal…

  25. Lakers reportedly showing interest in Jodie Meeks

    Jul 27, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    The Lakers are pretty set at starting two guard. Got a guy they kind of like there.   But if the goal is to keep Kobe Bryant’s minutes down — he averaged a ridiculous 38.5 last season for Mike Brown — you need a reliable backup. And while Andrew Goudelock and Darius Johnson-Odom are on…
