  1. Sixers’ Arnett Moultrie out until January after ankle surgery

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:20 AM EST

    Arnett Moultrie, Ben Gordon

    Following up on a rookie season where he played pretty well in a very limited role, Arnett Moultrie was going to get his chance at the start of the year to prove he could be key to the rebuilding Sixers, getting big minutes at the four. Now he is out until the new year following…

  2. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:02 AM EST

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Last season: The 76ers went 34-48, the 11th time in the last 12 seasons they won between 33 and 48 games. They made the playoffs most seasons during that span, but they only one two postseason series. With the emergence of the NBA’s second-youngest All-Star last year, Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia seemed like it had a…

  3. Sixers need to add $10 million in salary to make minimum

    Aug 23, 2013, 1:09 PM EST

    Sam Hinkie

    We talk a lot about the salary cap and luxury tax on this site, the numbers farther up the NBA play ladder, but there is a floor, too — teams need to have at least 90 percent of the salary cap filled, or $52.81 million on the books this season. With the addition of Tony…

  4. Blake Griffin gets in on the highlights at Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am in Seattle (VIDEO)

    Aug 18, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    First it was Kevin Durant and Spencer Hawes (seriously), and then it was Kyrie Irving, all showing out at Jamal Crawford‘s Pro-Am league in Seattle. On Saturday, it was Blake Griffin‘s turn. In terms of sick highlights and pure entertainment value, this probably doesn’t surpass what we saw Kyrie do a day earlier. But Griffin can…

  5. Kyrie Irving puts on a show at Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am in Seattle (VIDEO)

    Plenty of stars have been rolling through Jamal Crawford‘s Pro-Am league in Seattle this summer. We’ve already seen Kevin Durant and Spencer Hawes (!) put up some big numbers, and Kyrie Irving took his turn on Friday. This highlight reel showcases everything special about Irving’s game — from the sick handles to the no-look passes…

  6. Spencer Hawes drops 58 points in Seattle Pro-Am game (VIDEO)

    Aug 12, 2013, 3:43 PM EST

    Spencer Hawes

    After six seasons in the NBA, Spencer Hawes is viewed by most as a serviceable big man who is capable of averaging just north of 11 points and seven rebounds per game when given more than 27 minutes per contest to do what he does best. Hawes has never been viewed as a Kevin Durant…

  7. Video: Kevin Durant highlights in his return to Seattle

    Aug 11, 2013, 10:46 PM EST

    durant green sonics

    Kevin Durant was supposed to usher the Seattle SuperSonics into a new age of dominance when the Portland Trail Blazers passed over him with the first pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. That obviously fell through when the Sonics relocated to become the Oklahoma City Thunder, but Durant returned to Seattle to play a little…

  8. Should Sixers trade Evan Turner? Do they wait hoping his value goes up?

    Jul 30, 2013, 2:31 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    When Jrue Holiday was traded, it felt like a trade countdown clock started over Evan Turner’s head — he was the logical next to go. Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young are on that list, too, but Turner has real value around the league. Plus, Sixers GM Sam Hinkie has said he’s not done shaking up…

  9. It took Jrue Holiday five minutes to get over being traded

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:59 PM EST

    Jrue Holiday

    A couple years ago the Philadelphia 76ers looked like an up-and-coming team — Doug Collins had them playing good defense, they had Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner to go with Andre Iguodala. There was some reason for hope… then the gamble on Andrew Bynum went bad. Very bad. Now the Sixers are rebuilding and Holiday…

  10. Sixers new GM not done shaking up roster, will be active with trades

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:31 AM EST

    Sam Hinkie

    When the Sixers moved Jrue Holiday on draft night, the plan of new GM Sam Hinkie became clear — they were going to get worse to get better. Philly is not going to be good this year, but they will have two first round draft picks (theirs and New Orleans, so long as that isn’t…

  11. Sixers will consider Bynum return but have bigger issues to deal with

    Apr 19, 2013, 12:35 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The Philadelphia 76ers gambled and lost. They traded Andre Iguodala to get back Andrew Bynum and rebuild their roster around an elite big man. Problem was, he’s an elite big man with terrible knees that never saw the court. And the aftermath of that decision is just beginning to come to down on the team.…

  12. Sixers players sound ready for disappointing season to end

    Apr 17, 2013, 2:50 PM EST

    Spencer Hawes

    Some teams have packed it in already. The Portland Trail Blazers decided to play their young guys a lot more rather than chance a final playoff spot and have lost 12 in a row. The Cleveland Cavaliers are disinterested, and unfortunately that group includes Kyrie Irving. But they aren’t the only teams that can’t wait…

    LeBron James

    In the first half of the season, this was the kind of game the Heat would lose — a back-to-back, a fired up opponent playing better than they have in weeks, and the Heat just kind of coasting. With an 8.5 game lead over the No. 2 in the East, it’s the kind of game…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

    Most nights, we have the game’s biggest stars lighting up the scoreboard while leading their teams to victory. That wasn’t the case on Monday, as the leading scorers on the winning side of things were largely unheralded players. Third Star: Kosta Koufos (Game-high and career-high 22 points, 10 rebounds in win over Suns) Koufos isn’t…

  19. Report: Sixers almost acquired Josh Smith at deadline

    Mar 7, 2013, 11:16 AM EST

    Josh Smith, Devin Harris

    On paper it’s an impressive front line — Andrew Bynum and Josh Smith. On the court… that would have been interesting. I mean, assuming Bynum ever gets back on the court. Like the Bucks backcourt, it could be both amazing and painfully bad, not even game to game but quarter to quarter. We will not…

    New York Knicks forward Anthony reacts after being fouled by the Atlanta Hawks in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Midway through the third quarter of the Knicks’ win over the Sixers on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony apparently was done wrestling with Spencer Hawes. After the two were battling for position for most of the possession, and once the shot went up, Anthony smacked Hawes in the back of the head with his right hand, and…

    That would be “Manimal.” Also known as Kenneth Faried. A whirlwind of energy and an absolute beast on the boards. One of the hardest working players in the NBA. And he would like you to meet his two mothers and hear his support of them. Good for him, good for taking a stand. Professional sports…
