Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Should the Sixers use the “amnesty clause” on Elton Brand?

    Oct 24, 2011, 4:27 PM EST

    Elton Brand

    Elton Brand has been a let down to fans in Philadelphia. A max deal guy not playing up to his standards in a tough town. His first year there he played just 29 games due to injury. His second season he was back for 76 games but was just average, not fully recovered and stuck…

  2. Fresh Prince of Society Hill: Will Smith buys part of 76ers

    Oct 18, 2011, 2:17 PM EST

    Will+Smith

    Now we have four rappers who are part owners of NBA teams. Still only one that anyone talks about, but four total. Will Smith — rapper, actor, the Fresh Prince himself — and his wife Jada Pinkett are now minority owners of the Philadelphia 76ers, it was announced at the introductory press conference for the…

  3. New Sixers owners cutting ticket prices in half for 9,000 seats

    Oct 18, 2011, 1:34 PM EST

    Joshua Harris

    I had thought that when Arte Moreno bought the Anaheim Angels (as they were then called) and at his introductory press conference announced a cut in beer prices, that was the best start ever by an owner. Well, it is. But this is a close second. Sixers owner Joshua Harris came in at his introductory…

  4. League makes official what we already knew: 76ers have been sold

    Oct 18, 2011, 9:13 AM EST

    Joshua Harris

    We told you over the weekend that the NBA’s other owners had approved the sale of the Philadelphia 76ers to New York billionaire Joshua Harris and investors. Now the league has made official what everyone already knew, sending out an announcement of the sale Tuesday morning. “We are delighted that the NBA’s Board of Governors…

  5. Really quietly, the NBA approves Sixers sale

    Oct 16, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    Sixers Happy Family Time

    We’d like to congratulate billionaire Joshua Harris and his partners on the successful purchase of the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team which actually doesn’t play basketball at the moment. From the Philadelphia Inquirer: The NBA Board of Governors has approved Comcast-Spectacors sale of the 76ers to a group of investors led by New York billionaire Joshua…

  6. Report: Raptors’ talks with Stefanski ‘stalled’ as Sixers GM looks to Blazers

    Oct 15, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    Remember how Ed Stefanski was going to be the next Raptors GM, essentially working under Bryan Colangelo in what would largely be an assistant role since Colangelo is the guy who runs the show? And how it was a done deal and all that? Yeah, not so much. Yahoo! Sports reports that the deal has…

  7. Sale of Philadelphia 76ers expected to be completed next week

    Oct 14, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Next Wednesday and Thursday, the NBA Board of Governors — all of the owners — are going to get together and most of the talk will be about labor deals and revenue sharing. But there will be one other order of business — approving the sale of the Philadelphia 76ers to Joshua Harris and other…

  8. What the 76ers should do if the lockout ends

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Philadelphia 76ers. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. After a miserable 09-10 campaign, the 76ers made their way back to…

  9. Raptors close to hiring 76ers Stefanski as general manager

    Oct 7, 2011, 8:40 PM EST

    Image (1) Raptors_logo-thumb-250x221-14966.gif for post 2867

    Ed Stefanski, the 76ers general manager who has basically been a lame duck in Philadelphia since the ownership brought in Rod Thon to run the show, is close to landing a new gig. He is in “advanced talks” to become the GM and No. 2 guy with the Toronto Raptors behind team president Bryan Colangelo,…

  10. Andre Iguodala a Merrill Lynch intern this summer

    Sep 29, 2011, 10:17 PM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala has a lot of money to take care of — he’s already made $44 million in his career and he has about that much more coming to him the next three years (which is why the 76ers shop him around). Most players treat that much money like they’re in an episode of “Entourage”…

  11. Sixers outgoing owner says he was tired of losing money

    Sep 20, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers fans were high fiving each other when it was announced a few months back that Ed Snider and Comcast-Spectactor announced they were selling the team to Joshua Harris and a team of investors. Snider was seen as a guy who loved hockey and the Flyers, and happened to own the 76ers, too. But…

  12. Who looked good in Vegas Day 1: Marreese Speights, Iman Shumpert

    Sep 13, 2011, 9:09 AM EST

    MArreese Speights; Amir Johnson

    Monday was Day 1 of the Impact Competitive Training Series out in Las Vegas. That is some organized run for NBA guys, a chance for them to fine tune their games and get in shape for training camps and a season that may or may not come soon. About 40 guys were there for the…

  13. Evan Turner likes his jump shot a lot more than he used to

    Sep 7, 2011, 3:49 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    For a guy the 76ers pictured as their shooting guard of the future, Evan Turner struggled with the shooting part of that job his rookie year. He shot 37.1 percent from three to nine feet out, 37.6 percent form 10 to 15 feet, 37 percent from 16 feet to the arc and 31.8 percent from…

  14. Andre Iguodala and Doug Collins are all good. Seriously.

    Aug 31, 2011, 1:19 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Why do you think Andre Iguodala and Doug Collins don’t get along? Because Iggy sounded like a guy who wanted out after the season? Because he’s been on the trade block? General body language? You are way off base. That’s what Iguodala himself is saying. He spoke with Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer and…

  15. Today’s overseas roundup: Patty Mills to Australia, Bogut to join him?

    Aug 29, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    andrew bogut

    There are so many NBA players both talking to and signing with overseas teams that we collect them in a daily roundup. I do this in bullet points because I am a blogger. Agent Mulder could more easily ignore a conspiracy than I could ignore the chance to use bullet points. • Patty Mills is…

  16. Elton Brand sees some improvement in 76ers

    Aug 29, 2011, 9:20 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday

    A bunch of Philadelphia 76ers got together in Los Angles over the weekend to workout together. We’d love to tell you it’s a pre-training camp get together, but we all know better than that. Still, a good turnout of the starting five of the Sixers and the first guy off the bench last year —…

  17. Why isn’t Barkley in NBA 2K12? Money.

    Aug 24, 2011, 3:48 PM EST

    barkley-sixers

    NBA 2K12, by putting 15 legends of the NBA into this year’s game, sparked a little debate — which 15 guys should be in? It’s easy to say Michael Jordan and Magic, but when it gets to around 15 the lines are not so clear. Especially when you know the game makers are giving extra…

  18. Former Sixer, Net MacCulloch is a pinball wizard

    Aug 16, 2011, 9:20 AM EST

    MacCulloch

    Todd MacCulloch was a good NBA center a decade better, a career cut short by injuries. If you are a good big man you get paid handsomely in the NBA. What did MacCulloch do with that money? He bought pinball machines. Seriously, it is estimated right now he has about 60 machines in his home.…

  19. Get to know me: Joshua Harris (soon to be 76ers owner)

    Aug 2, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Joshua Harris

    This has been the general reaction of Sixers fans to the team being sold (the other NBA owners just need to approve it): “Good, Ed Snider only cared about hockey… wait, who is buying the team?” The answer is Joshua Harris. Which leads to the next question, who is Joshua Harris? Kate Fagan delves into…

  20. Iguodala says he’s not playing overseas during lockout

    Jul 28, 2011, 3:02 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    We’re pretty weary of the “will he or won’t he” game with guys going overseas. But we’re still passing along stuff from the big names guys, because that’s what we do here. With that, Andre Iguodala looks like he’s staying put, according to a tweet from Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Andre Iguodala has…

  21. Spencer Hawes’ head wants basketball back in Seattle

    Jul 25, 2011, 8:03 PM EST

    Spencer Hawes

    The above is a picture of Spencer Hawes‘ head at a charity basketball game played at Seattle’s Key Arena Saturday, the former home of the Seattle Supersonics. The team was moved to Oklahoma City, but after the game Hawes, a Washington native, expressed his desire for basketball to return to Seattle (story via The Seattle…

  22. Stefanski hasn’t interviewed with Raptors… but he’s job-hunting

    Jul 16, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    See, this is why the media is always so skeptical of what teams tell them. When Rod Thorn joined the Sixers, it was supposed to be happy-happy joy-joy in terms of his addition alongside Ed Stefanski. There wasn’t supposed to be any conflict, or issues. Stefanski was supposed to retain almost all of his power…

  23. Evan Turner working on overhauling his shot

    Jul 14, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    The 2010 No. 2 overall pick, Evan Turner, had a rough rookie season. That starts with trouble putting the ball in the basket with any consistency. The main reason for that was Turner’s shaky outside shot — the 22-year old Ohio State product finished well at the rim, but shot only 37.6% on 10-15 foot…

  24. It’s a trend, private equity firms snatching up NBA teams

    Jul 14, 2011, 4:32 PM EST

    Tom Gores

    Despite what David Stern seems to think is a franchise-crushing financial system, and despite the threat of a protracted lockout, NBA franchises seem to be selling for record prices. And healthy profits in some cases for the former owners. The latest is the just agreed-to deal for Joshua Harris to buy the Philadelphia 76ers. But…

  25. Report: Deal reached in sale Philadelphia 76ers

    Jul 13, 2011, 6:23 PM EST

    UPDATE JULY 13, 6:23 pm: Over at CSNPhilly.com, Dei Lynam has confirmed that a deal has been reached. She also talks about the next steps in the process.  Now the deal must be approved by the league’s board of governors. The NBA needs to approve the sale and they will be thorough in their investigation.…
