This is a minor trade, even in Sam Hinkie’s world.

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.

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

Tony Wroten’s Jordan 10s failed him in a game earlier this week, and Michael Jordan himself later called to apologize.

Tony Wroten of the Sixers became the latest player to experience a shoe malfunction.

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…

Blake Griffin is good at basketball. Also: Kyle Korver can still shoot.

Normally I think shots from half-court or longer aren’t worth the highlight, unless of course it’s a game-winner or something like that. It’s just that while plenty of NBA players can hit ‘em, they’re such low-percentage looks that they’re usually more about luck than they are about skill. Tony Wroten, however, got lucky two nights…

One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

The NBA warned Tony Wroten for flopping, and he deserved it. Here’s video (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward): Wroten was wide open when he shot, and he still fell. He clearly stuck his foot out to either draw contact or lose his balance. It’s the type of play that could get someone injured.…

Not sure I have ever seen this before. Early in the Clippers eventual easy win over the Sixers Chris Paul puts up a shot and because DeAndre Jordan‘s man had rotated over to help on the drive it left Tony Wroten — all 6’5″, 205 five of him — trying to keep Jordan off the…

Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

Our grades from Wednesday around the NBA, or what you missed while watching a man attack a taxi with a didgeridoo… Tony Wroten, Philadelphia 76ers. Rookie sensation Michael Carter-Williams was out and Wroten got thrown in the fire with his first ever start against Houston — and he responded with a triple double. Wroten finished…

It’s not often that Derrick Rose is on the wrong side of these types of highlights, but given the way the Sixers erased the Bulls’ 18-point third quarter lead to come away with their third straight victory to start the season, the guys on the tam who made it happen deserve a little shine. Rose…

Last season: After totaling up 56 wins in the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies got sweet revenge over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then extinguished a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder team before finally falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. This was the best season in franchise history by a large…

Many advanced stats, in basketball and other sports, rely on a concept called a replacement player. A replacement player is a hypothetical player who can easily be obtained to fill out the roster. In his definition of an NBA replacement player, Kevin Pelton says a team of replacement players would win 10 games in a…

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…

Darius Morris couldn’t crack Mike D’Antoni’s tight rotation last season with the Lakers. He played sparingly until injuries in the playoffs forced D’Antoni’s hand and Morris started Game 3 against the Spurs in the first round. Morris put up 24 points (on just 15 shots) and had six assists, but he got torched at the…
