Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Lakers GM Kupchak didn’t think Howard trade would happen, either

    Aug 21, 2012, 12:30 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Mitch Kupchak

    You think you were frustrated during the Dwightmare… The Lakers wanted to land Dwight Howard — it was the one guy they would move Andrew Bynum to get and see it as an upgrade, and Bynum’s value might never be higher — so they were in. They talked to Rob Hennigan (the young Orland GM)…

  2. Watch the top plays from Howard, Bynum, Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala

    Fans in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Denver are pumped for next season after the big four-team Dwight Howard trade. As they should be. their teams got a lot more interesting. And better.

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Philadelphia has gone another direction — Andre Iguodala is out, Andrew Bynum is in as the new face of the franchise. The young, anchor center who has Philly talking about something other than the Eagles. Well, for five minutes. The idea is to sell hope in Philly and build on a young core of Bynum,…

    Ty Lawson

    Part of the talk at the “hello Denver, meet Andre Iguodala” press conference on Thursday involved Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri and Iguodala both saying they would be willing to talk about a contract extension. Words like that are nice, we’ll see where it goes. But another note out of the Denver Post talks about the…

  5. Andre Iguodala is interested in a future with the Nuggets

    Aug 16, 2012, 9:25 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    When you trade for a guy on an expiring contract, there’s always the risk that, much like a date after the first night out, they won’t see a future with you. There’s still a feeling of rejection when someone says they prefer the company of others to your exclusive company. You have to worry about…

  6. Andrew Bynum raises the stakes for Holiday, Turner

    Aug 16, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bynum is just one piece. I like that piece, I like the direction the 76ers are going. But as the double teams start loading up on Bynum fast and he gets better at passing out of them (a skill he needs to work on) it just puts more pressure on everyone else. The other…

  7. Philly goes big with Bynum, which worries Doc Rivers (a little)

    Aug 16, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Doug Collins on Wednesday told a great story that illustrates perfectly just what Andrew Bynum can mean to Philadelphia. Collins was in London calling basketball games for NBC when the Dwight Howard trade that brought Bynum to the Sixers went down. Collins and NBC Olympics hoops studio analyst Doc Rivers — old friends from around…

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Rob Hennigan, the Orlando Magic’s new on the job general manager, and the entire Magic organization is taking a lot of incoming fire — that’s all you got for Dwight Howard?

  10. Iguodala is excited, says all the right things about joining Denver

    Aug 15, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Spain v USA Iguodala

    You have to remember that whenever you read the comments from an NBA player about the new team he is joining, it’s pretty much the tone of what you would tell your mom after you got a job you really wanted. Just with more clichés. What Andre Iguodala said about joining the Nuggets to the…

  11. On the amazing ripple effects of the 2004 Shaq Trade

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:42 PM EDT

    Kobe Shaquille O'Neal Lakers

    Remember the Summer of 2004? The Lakers, who came into the season with Gary Payton, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, and Shaq making up 80% of their starting 5, had just lost a “gentlemen’s sweep” to the Detroit Pistons. Kobe Bryant was a free agent. Shaq still had that pre-max monster of a deal, and he…

  12. One trade to watch for: Philly moving a big man (not Bynum)

    Aug 14, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    Philadelphia had their big man rotation set. Coach Doug Collins said Kwame Brown was going to be the starter. (Why? Because he felt his blood pressure was too low.), There were also Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen on the roster to play the five, plus the Sixers just drafted 6’11” power forward Arnett Moultrie. But…

  13. The Inbounds: Nash, Howard, and an impossible sword

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Last year, on a team where Marcin Gortat was the second-best player on the team and the rest of the…

  14. Andrew Bynum to go to Germany for knee procedure on reportedly healthy knees

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

    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…

    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,…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…
