PHILADELPHIA 76ERS NEWS

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...

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. Eighteen days ago, after several weeks of...

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...

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...
