  1. The Sixers Got Point Guard Tony Wroten for Nothing And That’s a Cool Thing

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies

    With Michael Carter-Williams the first and only entry on the Sixers’ current depth chart at point guard–seriously, check it out–it was highly probable that the Sixers were gonna pick up another guy to play the one before off-season’s end. You figured it would probably be an experienced journeyman type, like an Earl Watson or Jamaal…

    NBA: Playoffs-San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors

    At the draft a month and a half ago, erroneous reports (which we played our part in further circulating) surfaced that the Sixers had hired former Spurs assistant and Australian national team head coach Brett Brown to succeed Doug Collins as the Ballers’ new fearless leader.

    Well, that’s that then. Apparently the Sixers’ pitch to Andrew Bynum wasn’t quite good enough, and now he’s gone and signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bynum will join the Cavaliers’ up-and-coming collection of top-five talent–#1 overall picks Kyrie Irving and Anthony Bennett, and #4s Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters–as a…

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    So the Sam Hinkie era has begun, and as the filmmakers behind Executive Decision did by killing off Steven Seagal in the first hour, our new General Manager has upped the stakes for the 2013-14 Sixers by making his first move the dismissal of the Sixers’ own biggest-name and most likeable character, Jrue Holiday.

    In ESPN draft guru Chad Ford’s latest (but probably not last) Mock Draft, he has the Sixers taking big men with all three of their picks: Indiana PF Cody Zeller at #11, Kansas C Jeff Withey at #35, and Illinois St PF Jackie Carmichael at #42. “The 76ers need size and athleticism in their frontcourt…
