    Sep 23, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hey, Jrue. No pressure. Talking with the media today, new Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins spoke with more bombast than he ever did as a color analyst. Here are the tweets from our own Adam Levitan or Rotoworld who was there. Doug Collins says he thinks jrue holiday will be a top-5 pg in nba…

  2. New Orleans, Philadelphia trade some bench players

    Sep 23, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    We have a trade! Not the one everyone has been talking about and speculating on for the past few days. But a trade nonetheless. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news with a tweet. New Orleans has traded Darius Songalia and Craig Brackins to Philly for Willie Green and Jason Smith, league source tells Y! This…

  3. NBA Season Preview: The Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 16, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    Last season: They went 27-55, which is wholly unspectacular. They weren’t as bad as the Nets or the Timberwolves, but the Sixers were in that next group of teams that stand out only for their failure to compete.  Head Coach: Doug Collins, who’s here to win friends and influence people. Key Departures: Samuel Dalembert, Allen…

  4. Report: Warriors may go with Rodney Carney as backup

    Sep 2, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    As it is the “guys who fill out the end of the bench” signings time of the year, we have one report for you. Rodney Carney is talking to and nearing contract with the Golden State Warriors, according to a tweet from NBA.com’s Scott Howard Cooper. Carney was in Philadelphia last season playing 12 minutes…

  5. Andres Nocioni will sit out World Championships

    Aug 26, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni was expected to be a cornerstone for Argentina, one of the world basketball powers, at the World Championships in Turkey. But he sprained his ankle on July 31, and after an MRI this week it has been decided he will sit out the tournament to rest it more, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.…

  6. Evan Turner gets shoe deal with Chinese shoe company Li Ning

    Aug 24, 2010, 9:24 AM EDT

    Walk into Foot Locker to pick up some shoes and Li Ning isn’t there among the Nikes and Adidas. But the company is almost as big. Li Ning is the biggest China-based shoe and athletic apparel company, a power player in a booming market. They had $1.2 billion in sales last year, which is no…

  7. Sixers hire Rod Thorn as team president, Ed Stefanski moves to GM

    Aug 12, 2010, 1:49 AM EDT

    Ed Stefanski has had mixed success during his time with the Philadelphia 76ers, as he’s simultaneously amassed some interesting young talent while completely nuking the team’s financial flexibility. He turned mid-first rounders into Marreese Speights and Jrue Holiday, re-signed Louis Williams to a reasonable deal, and kept Andre Iguodala in Philly. The only problem is…

  8. Andres Nocioni remains questionable for World Championships

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    There is good news for Philadelphia — Andres Nocioni should be healthy and ready to go by training camp in December. Argentina basketball fans, the news isn’t as good. Nocioni sprained his ankle last Friday while training with the Argentinean national team for the upcoming FIBA World Championships in Turkey. Sixers doctors just got a…

  9. Andres Nocioni questionable for worlds, another blow for Argentina

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    It’s another blow for Argentina, who comes in to Turkey as the defending World Champions. Andres Nocioni joins Manu Ginobili on the sidelines for the world powerhouse. Nocioni injured his ankle in training with the team but may be able to go for the World Championships, according to FanHouse. The Championships start Aug. 25. Even…

  10. Evan Turner blames conditioning for getting his butt kicked in Summer League

    Aug 2, 2010, 12:35 PM EDT

    Evan Turner got his butt kicked. And in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, he admitted it — Summer League was not good to him. “I’ve been playing pretty much every day against good competition,” Turner said. “It was really an eye-opener for me to get my butt kicked, but it was also a good…

  11. Sixers' arena changes name to 'Wells Fargo Center'

    Jul 28, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    In a change that’s barely even cosmetic, the home court of the Philadelphia 76ers (and the Philadelphia Flyers, natch) has changed it’s name from the ‘Wachovia Center’ to the ‘Wells Fargo Center,’ according to the Associated Press. Maybe now they can take out a loan so they can actually buy a bucket? Or put up…

  12. Former Sixers General Manager Billy King near deal to take over reins of Nets

    Jul 14, 2010, 11:03 AM EDT

    UPDATE: 11:03 am: It’s official, King has taken the New Jersey job, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com. King spent almost a decade as the head man in Philly, but you have to wonder if new Nets owner Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov will want his own man calling the shots in a few years. For…

  13. Evan Turner is having a rough Summer League

    Jul 9, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    Welcome to the NBA, Evan Turner. Well, not even the NBA. Summer League, which is a  few steps below the NBA in terms of quality of play. But it has still flummoxed the No. 2 pick so far. I watched two games and he has had moments of quality play but mostly has struggled. He’s…

  14. Spencer Hawes gets another chance, but Philadelphia is not so forgiving

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Right now, everything is good between Spencer Hawes and Philadelphia. The management there, his teammates, the fans are all good with him. It was that way in Sacramento for a long time. He was to be the future. Hawes and the fans loved each other. But that soured. He can drain threes (at a 30…

  15. Anyone want to trade for Elton Brand? Anyone? Hello?

    Jun 23, 2010, 10:35 AM EDT

    The Sixers really, really want to trade Elton Brand. Really, really. He is the anchor on their grand rebuilding plans. First they tried to package him with the No. 2 pick, but there were no real bites on the line so now the Sixers are pretty set on taking Evan Turner in that spot. Now…

  16. NBA draft: Even if the 76ers' decision is already made, they're continuing workouts

    Jun 19, 2010, 3:55 PM EDT

    The Sixers posted a pretty interesting graphic on their website to entics season ticket buyers, and the internet a’sploded with something we kind of already knew: the team with the No. 2 pick in the draft seems set to select (gasp) the seemingly clear-cut second best prospect in the bunch. This is all very shocking,…

  17. Sixers may have tipped their hand about drafting Evan Turner

    Jun 19, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Evan Turner is widely considered the No.2 overall prospect in Thursday’s draft. The Sixers have several needs, but Turner is such a dynamic talent, the national player of the year, that he outweighs other needs they may have. Their recent trade of Samuel Dalembert for Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes does leave open the possibility…

  18. Report: Sixers trade Dalembert to Kings for Nocioni and Hawes

    Jun 17, 2010, 2:14 PM EDT

    In what likely would be the first domino in a series of moves, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly made a trade to start shaping the roster more to the liking of new coach Doug Collins. Samuel Dalembert will be traded to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Spencer Hawes and Andres Nocioni, according to ESPN.com’s…

  19. Sixers hire Austin Toros' coach Quin Snyder as head of player development

    Jun 11, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The 2009-2010 season was already a fantastic one for the D-League, with a record number of NBA call-ups, incredible success for individual players like Reggie Williams and Anthony Tolliver, and record attendance and viewership. It seems the 2010-2011 season will pick up right where this year left off, as there’s already one notable D-League call-up…

  20. NBA Draft: Derrick Favors could go No. 2, leaving Evan Turner to fall

    Jun 1, 2010, 7:23 PM EDT

    It makes a lot of sense for the Philadelphia 76ers to take Evan Turner at the two — the Brandon Roy style guy could play along side Jrue Holiday at the point and Andre Iguodala at the three, then the Sixers could run like the wind — be entertaining and win games. Crazy concept. But…

  21. Doug Collins has the right plan for Philly. Now he's just got to execute it.

    May 25, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    When the Philadelphia 76ers got out and ran, they were to be feared. The team won 41 games two seasons ago that way. Last season, they slowed it down and went Princeton offense with less aggressive defense. Throw in some injuries and you have the recipe for a terrible year. Doug Collins came out in…

  22. Ed Stefanski is still the man in Philadelphia

    May 25, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    One might have surmised this from the fact he headed up the recently-concluded coaching search, but now we have confirmation: Ed Stefanski is staying on as president of the Philadelphia 76ers. Ed Snider, the chairman and the man who makes the ultimate decisions for team owner Comcast-Spectacor, wondered why anyone even thought Stefanski was not…

  23. Grant Hill: Doug Collins could make the Sixers a playoff team next year

    May 24, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Grant Hill has been around a long time and played for a lot of coaches. While Mike Breen and the ESPN crew make it sound like he was old enough to play for Red Auerbach, he’s not been around quite that long. But he has been around long enough to play for Doug Collins in…

  24. NBA Draft: Who's dealing? A look at tradeable picks

    May 23, 2010, 1:48 PM EDT

    A significant side effect of the lottery is that teams who don’t necessarily need or want a nigh impact player at various positions get slotted in draft positions to acquire such a player. It also means that teams see an opportunity to cash in on a high impact young player by moving the pick for…

  25. It's official: Doug Collins is your new Philadelphia 76ers coach

    May 21, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    As predicted, it became official today: Doug Collins is the new head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. Collins was the first person Sixers General Manager Ed Stefanski interviewed, back on May 1. The two sides started negotiations a few days ago and have reached a four-year deal, according to Associated Press. Collins replaces Eddie Jordan,…
