PHILADELPHIA 76ERS NEWS

Would Phil Jackson have taken Towns or Okafor first overall?

The New York Knicks finished with the second-worst record in the NBA last season, but they were not fortunate enough to secure either the first or second pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Instead, the Knicks ended up selecting Kristaps Porzingis with the No. 4 overall pick. If the Knicks did end up with the...Read More

Will Philadelphia 76ers trade Carl Landry before opening night?

The Philadelphia 76ers and Carl Landry don't make a lot of sense together. One is a basketball team trying to fill their roster with young, inexpensive assets. The other is an aging, injury prone forward who's guaranteed $13 million over the next two seasons.  All this lends credence to the belief that Philly will move Landry to another team sooner than later, much like they just...

Philadelphia 76ers will sign J.P. Tokoto to training camp deal

J.P. Tokoto nearly plummeted out of the entire draft before the Philadelphia 76ers snagged him with the 58th overall pick. Tokoto is viewed as a play-making versatile wing who could have a lengthy NBA career if his jump shot improves. The Sixers know this, which is why they've reportedly convinced him not to flee overseas, where he'd be promised more money and better job security...

Remembering The Worst NBA Team Ever: 72'-73' Sixers

For the last three seasons, the 76ers have showed a distasteful willingness to put Development League level talent on the court masqueraded as an NBA team. Three years into their full rebuilding process, Sam Hinkie has three lottery picks that all play the same position, and no clear fit on how the three big men can coexist on the same court. Oh yeah, their third and twelfth...

Did the Philadelphia 76ers have a successful summer?

The Philadelphia 76ers had an interesting summer. On one hand, they fleeced the Sacramento Kings in a lopsided trade. On the other, it was announced that Joel Embiid will miss the upcoming season thanks to another surgery.Other than that, they didn't sign any free agents or make any moves to get noticeably better. But that's sort of the plan. So, was it a success? Here's what the...

Here's a list, compiled by Hoops Habit, featuring Norris Cole as one option:"With the addition of Jahlil Okafor, floor spacers are a necessity to detract...

Embiid Surgery Delay Raise Questions

The Joel Embiid saga in Philadelphia continues to be an interesting one. At this point in the process – a full 13 months since the 76ers selected Embiid with the 3rd overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft – no one seems quite sure what exactly is going on with the seven footer, and even less sure when we may actually see him out on the court.

Why the Philadelphia 76ers shouldn't worry about their ugly perception

Right now the Philadelphia 76ers have an awkward relationship with free agency. They aren't motivated to sign anybody, and, likewise, talented free agents don't want to go there. The Sixers are trying to lose games and, in the process, don't want to spent a lot of money. Professional basketball players value two things above everything else: money and winning. Understand the problem...

Are the Philadelphia 76ers a potential landing spot for Mario Chalmers?

Free agency is all but over, but the Philadelphia 76ers are still roughly $21 million below the salary cap. That's no surprise. Philly's general manager Sam Hinkie has no interest in winning games next season, and so long as he carries out this long-term rebuild, his bosses don't want to spend more money than they have to.But another advantage to having lots of cap space is it puts...

Trades that the Philadelphia 76ers need to make now

The Philadelphia 76ers have accumulated numerous assets in terms of cap space, future draft picks, and talented, young prospects; however, it is my personal opinion that they have failed to fully capitalize on all of them. All hope is not lost though, because the Sixers still have time this offseason to salvage the situation through aggressive trades. There are many different types...

Tony Wroten ‘Philly Tough’ Sketch

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten always brings his hoodies and Timbs game when he hits the court to make him a Philly favorite. Before he went down with an ACL injury last season, Wroten was averaging career highs in points (16.9 ppg), assists (5.2 apg) and steals (1.6 spg). Let’s hope he picks up where he left off when he returns to action. Art by Karmo Ruusmaa. The post...

Should Philadelphia give Baron Davis a tryout?

Baron Davis is 36 years old and hasn't played in an NBA game since he tore his ACL and MCL on May 6, 2012. That was a long time ago, and even then Davis wasn't a very effective basketball player. But he wants back in the league. Should Philadelphia be the team to make his dream come true?The Sixers need a point guard and could use some more veterans to infuse any sort of culture...

Will Philly be better next season?

The Philadelphia 76ers are a very bad basketball team because they're actively trying to be one. But is this year's roster more talented than last year's squad? It's a reasonable enough question worth entertaining. Here's the Philadelphia Inquirer's Bob Cooney trying to do just that:"But the big question among fans is this: Is this another season of losing in the hopes of landing...

Three crucial decisions the Philadelphia 76ers must make immediately

Jahlil Okafor For a team that tanked its way to a top 3 pick by flirting with the salary cap floor throughout the 2014-15 season, the Philadelphia 76ers have been disappointingly quiet during this off-season. The logically sound moves that were made (e.g. drafting Jahlil Okafor, picking up multiple players and a King’s first round pick for free) cannot be heavily criticized, but...
