Buzz On Broad:
He doesn’t start many games (just one game in the 2010-11 season), but his presence on the Philadelphia 76ers’ roster is immeasurable.
Thaddeus Young, a 23-year old sixth man, is currently a restricted free agent, but has expressed his interest in returning to The City of Brotherly Love. Teams around the league, though, are becoming more aware of Young’s value (12.7 PPG, 5.3 RPG) and are conveying their interest in signing the former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket.
This is making the 76ers very nervous.
Yes, they can match any offer that comes Young’s way, but because of the shortened offseason and the need around the league for a young impact player that has proven he can produce in limited minutes, the possibility of a team “overpaying” for Young comes into play.
The Sixers will match most of the possible offers, but with limited salary space, there comes a point when they might not be able to a match an offer that Young can’t resist, despite his desire to play for Philadelphia.

All they needed was players and a season.

Philadelphia fans love a hardworking, blue-collared player. They also respect the players that give it their all on every play.
When a player just “goes through the motions,” it’s considered a slap in the face to not only the team, but to the fans.
That is why Andres Nocioni might be losing some support from the fans (if he even had any before).
As I mentioned in a previous...
Early into the hours of the first day of December, Alex Kennedy of Hoops World (a website associated with The Big Lead) tweeted that Lou Williams could possibly be on his way out of Philadelphia.
Now who his sources are remain the question, but it's definitely interesting to note. There's been talks of Andre Iguodala possibly being dealt, Andres Nocioni appearing to be...
This is just a heads up for Philadelphia 76ers fans. If you feel like Andres Nocioni is simply going through the motions every time he steps onto the basketball court, it’s probably because he is. If he gives you the impression that he cares about the game as much as an office worker cares about [...]
Ok, before I start this I know there is not many NBA fans out there any more. Well, I don’t give a Damn! I love my Sixers! Alright, I am done spazing now, I am ok. The lockout could not come to an end at a better time for me. The [...]

With the NBA back in business, questions abound for the Philadelphia 76′ers who are under new ownership and are looking forward to building on the success of last season. The Sixers are still cap-strapped as the league salary cap remains at $58 million.
However, there is an amnesty provision that would allow the team to kick [...]
