Significant Backcourt Issues

With NBA Summer League action is a distant memory and free agency movement all but over, we have now truly entered the Association’s off-season.  The 76ers had a disappointing run this summer on the court and General Manager Sam Hinkie was very quiet on the free agency front which means the with training camp just two months away, 7-6 still have a host of issues staring the...

Philadelphia 76ers: Which Free Agents Should Philadelphia Re-Sign?

(Dec. 22, 2012 – Source: Bruce Bennett/Getty Images North America)   By Myles Stedman: Staff Writer at Hoopstuff… Whilst it is likely unnecessary, it may as well be made clear at least once in this article: the Philadelphia 76ers are not trying to win next year. That must be taken into consideration when assessing exactly whom they will and will not re-sign for 2015/16. As...

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...

Will Dallas pry K.J. McDaniels from Houston?

The Houston Rockets didn't find much use for K.J. McDaniels after they traded Isaiah Canaan for him at the trade deadline, but the restricted free agent could still contribute in the future. That is, if the Rockets retain his service. Many teams around the league would love to get their hands on a prospective 3-and-D swingman, especially one as athletic and versatile as McDaniels...

Draft Lottery Hardly a Failure for Sixers

Many Sixer fans were truly disappointed following the NBA draft lottery due to the fact that neither the Lakers pick or Heat pick conveyed to them. The Heat remained at 10 and the Lakers jumped up to #2. The Sixers stayed at #3. Yes, that’s a far cry from best case scenario, however it’s also equally as far from worst case scenario. Receiving an NBA record 3 lottery picks was...

Have we seen the last of Isaiah Canaan as a Sixer?

Everyone sitting close to the pool's edge can breathe a sigh of relief. There won't be any more Canaanballs for the Sixers this season.  Recently-acquired guard Isaiah Canaan has been an observer during the Sixers last few games, as Coach Brett Brown revealed last week that Canaan would miss the remainder of the season with a foot sprain.  Canaan, who was acquired on trade...

76ers throw short guy–short guy alley-oop

Philadelphia 76ers guard Ish Smith isn't known for finishing lobs, but he did it Wednesday night against the Wizards. OK, so he didn't exactly throw it down, but riddle us this: The NBA lists Smith at 6 feet (though they may be generous with that number). Isaiah Canaan, who tossed the alley-oop, is listed at the same height (same caveat here). So, are these the shortest players ever...

Admittedly, in an overtime loss to the Lakers, which might be the worst defensive team in the league, but...

Isaiah Canaan almost makes Jarrett Jack fall over

The Brooklyn Nets may have had the last laugh during Saturday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers, but Isaiah Canaan had the loudest one. What he did to Jarrett Jack should not be legal. That's not even a crossover. It's some sort of crazy, lateral hesitation move that put Jack completely on skates. It's almost like Canaan needed unnatural ankle flexibility to do it.

Weeks after Sam Hinkie doubled down on tanking, the Philadelphia 76ers have predictably continued their descent to the bottom of the standings. Their 2-9 record in the 11 games since the trade deadline has left them with the second worst in the league.
