The Philadelphia 76ers will waive Daniel Orton.
Orton's contract would become fully guaranteed if he were to remain on the roster beyond Tuesday.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Philadelphia 76ers decided to waive big-man Daniel Orton prior to Tuesday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The team released the reserve center on Tuesday, less than three months after signing him to a multiyear, non-guaranteed contract. The move came less than an hour before the contract-guarantee deadline. NBA teams had until 5 p.m. to make decisions regarding...
The Philadelphia 76ers front office is in full tank mode. The product on the floor? Not so much. Yes, the team has a 12-22 record, but many of those losses have come without start rookie Michael Carter-Williams on the floor. With MCW, Philadelphia has looked like a different team – a formidable team. But that may be changing in the relatively near future as Alex Kennedy reports...

I believe it was just one of those nights where his shot was not falling and that is going to happen occassionally if you play in the NBA long enough...
The Philadelphia 76ers have recalled guards Lorenzo Brown and Elliot Williams from the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League.
Brown was assigned to the Sevens on December 26, 2013 and appeared in five games, averaging 18 points, eight assists and five rebounds.
Williams was assigned to the Sevens on January 5, 2014 and had 19 points, five rebounds and five assists in his...
With the New Year upon us, Bovada has released updated NBA Rookie of the Year and MVP odds, and Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the No. 11 overall pick out of Syracuse, is the 5-4 favorite to be the league’s top rookie.
The 76ers haven’t had a Rookie of the Year since another guard from the Big East: Allen Iverson in 1996-97. Carter-Williams is nothing like...
For the past ten years, the 76ers have had an addiction to mediocrity. Even with their least talented rosters, they always find an improbable way to win 25 to 30 games each season and miss out on the chance of drafting a franchise player in the NBA Lottery.
With the momentum of a four game road winning streak in hand, it now appears as though the Sixers could miraculously pull...

After going 4-1 on their West Coast trip last week, the Philadelphia 76ers have dropped their last two games since returning. On Monday night, the Sixers were demolished at home by the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-95 in South Philly. The 76ers were dominated in almost every aspect of the game Monday night, as they made the T-Wolves look like a championship-caliber team out there on...
Philadelphia 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams seems to be right at home in the NBA, and hit Timberwolves PG Ricky Rubio with a nice crossover for an and-1 Monday night. Watch:
Timberwolves went on to blow out Philly 126-95, but at least MCW got a nice highlight and some revenge on Rubio for this between the legs pass out of it.
Thaddeus Young and David Lee have been named NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Monday, Dec. 30, through Sunday, Jan. 5.
Young helped the Philadelphia 76ers to a 3-0 week, with all three wins coming on the road. He averaged a conference-best 25.0 points on .566 shooting from the field (ninth in the conference), 7.7 rebounds...
Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman spoke before Monday’s 126-95 victory at Philadelphia about “turning the page” on Saturday’s bitter home loss to Oklahoma City.
Does a rout of a team that just had won the final four games of a challenging West Coast road trip and a final score that tied the second- largest road victory in franchise history qualify?
“I think so,” Wolves...
They say box scores don’t tell the whole story. Behind The Box Score is a new series where from time to time we will attempt to look behind the box score and tell more of the complete story of what happened in the game.
The Cavaliers may not have had newly acquired Luol Deng yet Tuesday night against the 76ers, but they definitely didn’t need him on this night. CJ Miles put on...
