    Apr 2, 2014, 1:48 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Nerlens Noel is not going to play for the Sixers this season, but they will have an interesting young team next season with him back and a couple lottery picks.

  2. Arnett Moultrie suspended for violating NBA drug policy

    Mar 31, 2014, 11:29 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett, Arnett Moultrie

    Philadelphia 76ers forward Arnett Moultrie has been suspended five games without pay for violating the NBA’s drug policy, the league announced. A five-game suspension is the punishment for a third marijuana violation. (The first violation carries no penalty, and the second is a $25,000 fine.) Moultrie, who hasn’t played in Philadelphia’s last nine games, is…

    Sixers avoid setting the all-time record for consecutive losses in a season, and remain firmly committed to the rebuilding plan that was set in motion last summer.

  6. Brett Brown: Free agents don’t want to sign with 76ers, 76ers don’t want to sign free agents

    Mar 28, 2014, 11:44 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The Philadelphia 76ers’ rebuild is all about timing. Right now, they’re in the stage of acquiring elite young talent. They drafted Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel last summer, and as long as neither player is yet good enough to lift the 76ers from the NBA’s basement, Philadelphia is eyeing even more elite young talent. This…

  7. Thursday NBA grades: The Sixers deserve an “A+”…. for tanking

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:08 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

  8. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  9. Sixers tie NBA record with 26th consecutive loss, this one at hands of Rockets

    Mar 27, 2014, 11:03 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

  10. Fred Carter says current Sixers worse than his 1973 9-win team

    Mar 26, 2014, 9:36 AM EST

    fred-carter-philadelphia-sixers-1973

    Fred Carter was the best player on arguably the worst team ever. He was the team MVP of the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers went 9-73, the worst record of any NBA team for a full season (remember the Bobcats were 7-50 I’m the lockout year, which worked out to a worse winning percentage). That Sixers team…

    San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

  12. Michael Jordan didn’t apologize to Tony Wroten for shoe malfunction after all

    Remember when Tony Wroten said Michael Jordan personally called to apologize for his Jordan 10s failing? Yeah, turns out it never happened.

  15. Sixers fall to Pacers, losing streak reaches 21, five short of tying NBA record

    Mar 18, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    Brett Brown, Lavoy Allen, Michael Carter-Williams, Evan Turner, Lorenzo Brown

    Philadelphia did hang with Indiana Monday night. The Sixers led through the first quarter and even when the Pacers came back in the second quarter their lead never swelled to more than 10, Philly cut it to three in the final minutes of the 99-90 Indiana win. It was the second time in a week…

  16. Paul George with slam over Sixers’ Henry Sims in Pacers win (VIDEO)

    Mar 18, 2014, 1:15 AM EST

    Paul George

    Indiana picked up its fourth straight win Monday — none of them over teams above .500 and none of them terribly impressive. But they count just the same. The Philadelphia 76ers were hanging around but were down 7 within the final minute when Paul George drives from the right wing and throws down the dunk…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs, Clippers are your clear top two

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  18. Sixers coach Brett Brown says true rebuilding will take ‘three to five years’

    Mar 16, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Brett Brown

    The Sixers are currently riding a 20-game losing streak, but for better or for worse, no one inside the Philadelphia organization is deluding themselves as to what’s going on there this season. Call it tanking, or as the NBA’s new commissioner Adam Silver prefers, rebuilding. But either way, there’s going to be a whole lot…

  20. The Extra Pass: Talking “Summer Dreams” with producer of Summer League documentary

    Mar 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    I’m a big fan of the NFL/HBO series “Hard Knocks,” which each year follows a team through training camp and the drama of season-ending injuries and the cut downs — guys are playing for their livelihood and there is inherent drama in that. It’s great television. But thanks to guaranteed contracts you can’t do the…

  21. Report: Spurs tried to trade for Evan Turner before Pacers got him

    Mar 13, 2014, 11:15 AM EST

    Evan Turner, Jeff Ayres

    Evan Turner played his way out of the NBA cellar before the trade deadline. Apparently, the only question was which championship contender he’d join. The Pacers traded for Turner, but reportedly he could have been a Spur. Marc Stein of ESPN: It emerged shortly after trade deadline that San Antonio tried hard to make deadline-day…

  22. Tony Wroten drops Ray McCallum to the floor with the killer crossover (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:55 AM EST

    Tony Wroten

    Normally posting video of one player dropping another with a crossover if it only leads to a missed shot is a bit gauche, but in this case, it’s worth making the exception. Tony Wroten seems to mystify Kings rookie Ray McCallum here, and McCallum trips over himself trying to keep up. Again, Wroten should have…

  23. Tuesday night NBA Grades: San Antonio with another impressive statement

    Mar 12, 2014, 2:33 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking I never had teachers like that… San Antonio Spurs offense. The Bulls defense has forced everyone they have faced lately into an ugly, grappling fight on the ground that favors Chicago. Even Miami fell victim to it. San Antonio rose above it with…
