Brett Brown was asked Monday about 76ers injured power forward Arnett Moultrie.
“I don’t even know Arnett Moultrie,” the Sixers coach jokingly responded. “He’s a ghost.”
Brown went to rave about the sidelined second-year player’s reduced body weight.
“He has bought in in a big way while not doing anything,” he said.
Moultrie is not expected to play until January after undergoing preseason surgery to prepare his left ankle. He suffered the injury during a workout.
“That’s a hard a role as you can give anybody is say ‘Don’t play. We are trying to rehab you,’ ” Brown said. “So a lot of times he’s not with the team.”
Yet, Brown said Moultrie has paid attention to his fitness, reduced his skinfold measurements and lost weight.
The coach is looking forward to getting the 6-foot-10 post player back on the court. He believes Moultrie has a bounce and energy that the team needs to extract on a regular basis.
“That was the knock on Arnett,” Brown said. “That he had al

You could see the frustration worsening on the Sixers’ faces as the fourth quarter came closer to an end. The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Dallas Mavericks last night 97-94.
The game was in their hands, and they lost it. It was another loss for the 76ers, but I’m sure this particular flight home is extremely dissatisfying. The Sixers led the Mavericks for the majority of the...
Going into this season, it was clear that the Philadelphia 76ers were not going to be built to win anytime soon. Their own coach at one point said that they had only 6 NBA players on their entire team, and that the rest of the spots would be up for competition. Given the amount of […]The post Should The 76ers Trade Thaddeus Young? appeared first on The League News.
After a slow start by both teams, and a poor display of fundamental display by the away team, the Sixers fell to the Mavericks 97-94 last night in Dallas. What would have been considered the Sixers’ best defensive effort was also a night in which the Sixers missed 10 layups. From the charity stripe, they made 12 of 22 free throws. Overall, Philadelphia shot an abysmal 38.4% from...
The Philadelphia 76ers, who were expected by most to be the worst team in the NBA, got off to a 3-0 start this season. Much of that fast start was due to the play of rookie guard Michael Carter-Williams. But he missed the last three games entering last night’s game and Karen Henness of Sports Injury Alert reported that Carter-Williams would likely miss last night’s game against...
As Philadelphia rounds out their three-game road trip against Dallas, rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams is likely to sit on the sidelines, cheering on his young team once again. The 22-year-old is a bright spot in the young 76ers future. Although he is likely to miss the entire road trip with a left foot arch bruise, he is sitting out only for precautionary reasons. Carter...
When the New Orleans Pelicans (still feels wrong to say) met up with the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night, we witnessed two of the NBA’s youngest, and most intriguing teams square-off in the Big Easy.
New addition, Tyreke Evans, has struggled with his new role thus far this season, but appears to finally be putting it together, as he’s posted double-digit scoring performances...
Thanks to an IT glitch with our Rapid Reacts generator that was significantly above our technical capabilities, we were unable to bring you immediate reviews of the 76ers L’s in Atlanta on Friday night and at New Orleans on Saturday night.
If you watched the games this weekend, you know that both contests were not pretty runs for Brett Brown & Company. When we look back on...
Evan Turner felt like he had to say something.
You could see the 76ers swingman’s frustration mounting in Monday’s 97-94 setback to the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center.
“I saw two of my teammates get their lips split,” he said of voicing displeasure to a referee before having an outburst with 2 minutes, 54 seconds left.“Obviously, frustration boils over...

We all knew that this was going to be a rebuilding year for the 76ers franchise and that the most important thing for this season was to keep an eye on the big picture. A lottery selection in the 2014 NBA Draft, cap space for the summer of 2014 and beyond as well as the development of the Sixers young roster are the items we should be focusing on during the #WinlessforWiggings...
The Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers have both been struggling, but the Raptors appear to have a better chance at a turnaround.
They also hope that applies to their series with the 76ers, against whom they have lost seven of nine entering Wednesday night's game in Philadelphia.
Both teams have lost three of four, but two of those defeats for Toronto (4-7) came in overtime...
With so many fresh, inexperienced faces populating Sixers’ training camp at The Philadelphia College of Orthopedic Medicine this summer, it was assumed that the team’s established veterans: Thad Young, Spencer Hawes, and Evan Turner would be responsible for much of the team’s on-court production, and locker room leadership.
While Turner and Hawes have seen their stats spike...
