Evan Turner has spent time sitting behind Andre Igoudala since the Philadelphia 76ers drafted him second overall two season ago. Igoudala made his first All Star team last season too, so despite Turner's overall improvement, his role was not really expected to change too much. That is until the Sixers dealt Andre to Denver last night, bringing back Bynum, and thrusting Turner into the starting line-up. A job he is expected to have all season now in Philly.
I spent time talking with Evan Turner back in July, and we spoke about his increased role during these past Playoffs. He said then, "I feel like I’m always ready, and whenever somebody puts that trust in me, that’s the most important thing they can give me."
While this move was obviously a huge coup for Philly in the sense that they landed Andrew Bynum during the prime of his career, for one season at least, it also represents an organizational trust in Turner as well. With good reason.
During 18 regular season ...

The Philadelphia 76ers finally decided to stomp with the big dogs. After an offseason filled with ineptitude and inconsequential moves the 76ers jumped in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes and came out with Andrew Bynum.
Bynum brings, well no one knows what Bynum brings. The big can be dominating at times and aloof at other times. The Jersey native is strong and violent in the paint...

This is as good of an ankle breaker as you will see in any basketball game, ever. Poor Andres Nocioni looked like he was a lost child wandering around a mall with his pants down around his ankles. Poor little guy will have nightmares about this for quite a while. Argentina beat Brazil to land themselves in the semi-finals.

Reserve shooting guard Jodie Meeks has accepted a two-year deal worth about 3 million to play for the Lakers, The Times has learned.
The move hardly warrants the same headlines as the Lakers other blockbuster offseason moves in acquiring Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, but Meeks arrival gives the Lakers a solid option in relieving Kobe Bryants minutes and bolstering the teams outside...
Andrew Bynum to Philly? How much else could you ask for as a Sixers fan?
Last night, a huge 4-team deal went down headlining this trade was Dwight Howard to L.A. and Andrew Bynum to the 76ers. I’m going to tell you why the Philadelphia 76ers are now a top contender in the East.
Now first off, yes you are losing your star player, Andre Igoudala, but you are receiving arguably the...
If you were wondering how the Philadelphia 76ers really felt about landing Andrew Bynum, here’s your answer.
Yes, they’ve already put up a billboard welcoming the big man. But can you blame them? Before the trade, they were actually going to begin the season with Kwame Brown as the starting center. Think about that.
Yeah, Philadelphia is pretty ecstatic right now.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Such a move bodes well for Philadelphia on two fronts.
It gives them a much-coveted center in Bynum, and it alleviates the logjam of wing players that developed on the Sixers roster this past season.
Now all of...
Look, I get it. It was late Friday when the details were finalized that sent Philadelphia Sixers first round draft pick Maurice Harkless to the Orlando Magic, part of the Dwight Howard/Andrew Bynum/Andre Iguodala four-team deal.
I’m sure the Sixers organization now has a boatload of Harkless gear that they still have to unload, even though he won’t play one game for them...
