  1. Looking for big draft day trade? Watch Andre Iguodala.

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:46 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala trade rumors have been flying around everywhere since the season ended, with the Clippers (Chris Kaman plus parts) leading the long parade of suitors. Those efforts to trade Iggy are heating up and he could be moved on or before draft day, according to Alex Kennedy at Hoopsworld. Meanwhile, Philadelphia wants to move…

  2. Maybe trading Monta Ellis is not going to be that easy

    Jun 17, 2011, 2:12 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Boston Celtics

    We’ve discussed before that with deal-making Jerry West in the house and a push for some changes in Golden State, Monta Ellis was being made available. Fourth leading scorer in the NBA, can create his own shot, bring some swagger to the offense, up your team’s tattoo quotient… not a lot of interest around the…

  3. As expected, Sixers to extend qualifying offers to Young, Hawes

    Jun 14, 2011, 8:09 AM EST

    Young_Thaddeus

    Both Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes will become restricted free agents come July 1… we think. I mean there will be a lockout and who the heck knows what things will look like on the other end of that. What we do know is that this week the Sixers will extend qualifying offers to Young…

  4. Charles Barkley wants to own an NBA team

    Jun 12, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Barkley, representing the 1992 United States Olympic "Dream Team"  in the Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2010, speaks in Springfield

    And you thought David Stern had to get used to Mark Cuban… imagine Charles Barkley, NBA owner. The Round Mound of Rebound and current analyst for TNT spoke on a conference call to promote the American Century Championship golf tournament — right here on NBC July 15-17 — and was asked about the potential sale…

  5. One factor in Iguodala rumors: Who owns the team?

    Jun 9, 2011, 6:20 PM EST

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andrea Iguodala is being traded to the Clippers. Or the Warriors. Or the Magic. Or probably 26 other teams who have inquired about the services of one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. There is an assumption that the Sixers are going to move Iggy. With that, any smart GM would at least…

  6. Iguodala likes idea of playing with Clippers. Ya think?

    Jun 9, 2011, 11:45 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Imagine a fast break coming at you with Andre Iguodala on one wing and Blake Griffin on the other, with Eric Gordon handling the ball and D’Andre Jordan as the trailer into the lane to pick up any garbage. Rumors of the Clippers and 76ers discussing an Andre Iguodala trade had fans salivating about just…

  7. Stein: Clippers, 76ers “discussing” Kaman-Iguodala trade

    Jun 8, 2011, 5:47 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    According to ESPN.com, the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers are “discussing” a trade that would send 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala to the Clippers in exchange for center Chris Kaman. For the 76ers, the move would be a way to fill a hole and save some money. Iguodala’s contract goes through the 2013/14 season, while…

  9. Report: Monta Ellis for Andre Iguodala trade discussed

    Jun 7, 2011, 2:43 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Philadelphia and Golden State are two franchises looking to shake things up, and this trade would certainly do that. According to Ric Bucher at ESPN, Golden State and Philadelphia have discussed a Monta Ellis for Andre Iguodala trade. He adds that this deal is not close to completion but is being discussed. They could be…

    Sixers Happy Family Time

    Jimmy Kimmel has been a constant source of NBA-related entertainment this post-season, and the fun continued on his show last night. Kimmel invited LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden of the Portland Trail Blazers and Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala on his show to play the “Team-Mating Game,” an NBA version of “The Newlywed Game” (or,…

  11. Ed Snider: Andre Iguodala hasn’t asked to be traded

    May 17, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala isn’t sure where he is going to play next year. Well, he said he was looking forward to being back in the NBA, but that’s a little vague. The Sixers may or may not be that place, but he’s not pushing his way out. That’s what Ed Snider — the chairman of Comcast-Spectacor that…

  12. Report: Sixers looking to trade Iguodala this summer

    May 8, 2011, 12:12 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    At the end of the season, Andre Iguodala was asked if he looked forward to playing with the 76ers next season, and his response was surprisingly vague for such a softball question. Here is what he told Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I expect to be back in the NBA,” Iguodala said after the…

  13. Andre Iguodala excused from exit meeting with Sixers

    Apr 28, 2011, 8:36 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    It’s part of the end of season ritual in the NBA, whether you win a championship or have racked up the most Ping-Pong balls in the lottery. A day or two after your season ends you clean out the locker, then you have a meeting with the coach and usually the general manager. You all…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Heat will close out tonight or regret it Sunday

    Apr 27, 2011, 5:15 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat are going to close out this series tonight. Sure, in theory in one game anything can happen (the NCAA bases a whole basketball tournament around that theory). Even Burnie (the Heat mascot you didn’t know had a name) will admit this Heat team is fully capable of playing a lazy, terrible game…

  15. Sixers’ Iguodala’s knee pain has been worse than he’s let on

    Apr 27, 2011, 12:26 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    Andre Iguodala has struggled through the playoffs. The most explosive wing player on Philadelphia has shot just 31.6 percent overall and 25 percent from three. He is averaging only 8.8 points per game. He has looked like a shell of the guy who won gold with Team USA in Turkey last summer. That guy looked…

  16. Video: Lou Williams dagger three to beat Heat

    Apr 25, 2011, 9:30 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    This may have been the pinnacle of the Philadelphia season. This is a pretty good team overmatched in the first round, but on Sunday they were the team that executed better with the game on the line. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were missing shots and defending poorly while Jrue Holiday and Lou Williams were…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Philly earns itself one more game this season. One.

    Apr 24, 2011, 6:15 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    If you believed in conspiracy theories, you could say that Miami is going to make a lot of extra money out of the extra home date for a Game 5 Tuesday. We’re not that guy. We think Miami came out flat as a lot of teams do up 3-0 and let the Philadelphia hang around…

  18. NBA Playoffs: 76ers playing for pride, Heat for days off

    Apr 24, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade and James speak during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Miami

    This series has played out exactly like the regular season for the Miami Heat. They overwhelmed lesser teams where they had more talent, the real tests were against the other elite teams where they struggled at times. The Heat have simply overwhelmed the Philadelphia 76ers on their way to a 3-0 series lead, but the…

  19. Video: LeBron James stumbling, bumbling assist to Wade

    Apr 22, 2011, 9:07 AM EST

    Miami Heat forward James grimaces on the floor while playing against Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia

    There are no style points in the NBA. It’s wins and losses, it’s results. And at the end of the day this is an assist for LeBron James and two points for Dwyane Wade that the team needed in going up 3-0 on the Philadelphia 76ers. Whether or not James is stumbling, it’s still pretty…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Now or never for 76ers in Game 3

    Apr 21, 2011, 5:49 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a pretty good team who could pose a threat to some upper echelon Eastern Conference teams in the first round. Miami is not one of them. The Sixers lack the ability to pound the Heat inside where they are soft. Philly also relies on getting out and running a little, getting…

  21. Video: LeBron James, Miami Heat putting on a little show for fans

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:49 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers have a problem — they really need to get out and run and get some easy buckets in transition to stand a chance in this series, but the Heat are more comfortable and just flat out better at an uptempo game. It’s a Catch-22 for them. As evidence, we bring you LeBron…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Heat crush Sixers, leave no doubt in Game 2

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:01 PM EST

    wade-game-2

    In Game 1 against the Heat, the Sixers jumped out to a 14-point second-quarter lead, before coming back furiously from a 16-point deficit late in the fourth to have a chance to steal one in Miami. In Game 2, however, there was no such fight. Philadelphia’s shaky offense came back to the mean, and couldn’t…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Can Philly do more than keep it close in Miami?

    Apr 18, 2011, 5:43 PM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures after being fouled in NBA basketball playoff action against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    Prediction: LeBron James is going to break out in Game 2. LeBron had a quiet 21 points in Game 1, but was just 4-of-14 shooting. He was more passive than normal, early on in the game he was patiently waiting for the double team to come so he could pass out of it. Don’t expect…

  24. NBA Playoff Preview: Miami vs. Philadelphia

    Apr 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Heat:  58-24 (No. 2 seed) 76ers: 41-41  (No. 7 seed) SEASON SERIES Miami swept the season series, winning all three contests by an average of just over 10 points per game. If there’s a bright side for the Sixers, it’s that two of the three meetings came very early in the season, before…

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Dwight Howard said as he started to take off he told Jrue Holiday not to jump. Their both Adidas guys, Howard didn’t want to embarrass him. Howard was going to throw down a monster dunk and he knew it. All credit to Holiday for trying, for getting back on defense and making the effort to…
