Five observations from the Sixers home opener

1. Point Guard Play: The Sixers need a point guard. Badly. Tony Wroten and Kendall Marsahll might not be long-term solutions, but they are  a definite upgrade from the disaster that is allowing Isaiah Canaan and T.J. McConnell to run an offense. Having them both out on the court at the same time, as occurred several times on Friday night, is especially brutal. Neither guard can...

Kendall Marshall won't be ready to start the season

When the Sixers signed Kendall Marshall to a fully-guaranteed deal for the upcoming season, it was worth wondering whether he should immediately be placed into the starting lineup.Marshall is an excellent point guard after all, at least in terms of his court vision and his ability to run a team's offense.

Report: Houston looking to bring back K.J. McDaniels

The Houston Rockets acquired rookie K.J. McDaniels from the Philadelphia 76ers for Isaiah Canaan and a 2015 second-round pick at last year's trade deadline. At the time, it felt like a fair enough deal, if not a win for Houston. McDaniels has freakish athleticism and showed he can play multiple wing positions on defense. But his shot is broken, and there's no way he can be a full...
