PLAYERS: Brett Brown
Sixers Royce White said before the start of NBA training camp that he had plans to travel with the team to Europe for preseason action despite his anxiety disorder. Looks as if Royce was quite ready for that leap of faith, and instead stayed in Philly while the team hits up Spain and England. “It really was just based on our team doctor giving me and Sam (Henkie, Sixers GM) and the club advice that it may be best for him to remain at home,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said of White’s absence. “You know we are with him. We will support and help him.” Looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see what Royce has to offer on the hardwood. I do question how Royce will be able to bond with his teammates missing out on a week of preseason.

Development of rookie Carter-Williams a team effort

Brett Brown has been unabashedly honest in saying that the development of Michael Carter-Williams is one of his highest priorities this season.

Steep learning curve awaits Carter-Williams

By the end of last season even point guard Jrue Holiday had to admit that he was a little worn down. The All-Star point guard said he was a victim of his position because he not only had to to find scoring opportunities for himself but also for others. Then Holiday often had to defend the opposing team’s ball handler which frequently made him the focus of the pick-and-roll. It...
