Sam Hinkie And The 76ers' Numbers Game

There aren't many things in the NBA more polarizing than Sam Hinkie and his team building strategies. The Philadelphia 76ers aren't the first team to attempt a slash-and-burn rebuild, but few have been so single-minded and so blatant about sacrificing the present on the altar of the future. The 76ers are the plot of "Major League" come to life, making moves almost as if they were...

76ers paying McGee, Wallace $22.1 million not to play for them this season

The 76ers waived Gerald Wallace on Saturday, who was acquired as part of the deal that sent them Jason Thompson to the Warriors. But the team never had any intention of keeping him. Philadelphia also received cash and draft considerations in the deal, because as a rebuilding team with the majority of players on the roster on rookie scale contracts, they have plenty of salary cap...

Not every trade has one winner and one loser, but boy oh boy some of them sure do. Throughout the month we’ll count down the ten most one-sided trades of the last ten years. The rankings are totally subjective, but this much is for sure: with each of these deals, one team really screwed themselves over, and one team gave themselves a gigantic vault towards glory.

Can the Golden State Warriors repeat?

The Golden State Warriors look primed for another championship run Usually it takes a head coach a year or two to get acclimated with his new team. In Steve Kerr’s case, it took maybe a week. The Golden State Warriors stormed out of the gate last year and never looked back, winning the team’s first championship since 1975. Can they do it again? Most likely. The Warriors...

What made Sacramento Fall in Love with Jason Thompson was his Heart

Last week, the Philadelphia 76ers traded two overseas prospects and a future second-round pick to the Sacramento Kings for Nik Stauskas, Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, a top-10 protected first-round pick and swap rights on two other first-round picks in the future.

The Sacramento Kings have become the antithesis of a team making smart moves during free agency.
