76ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

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. 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...

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...

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...

Will Pierre Jackson be Philly's starting point guard next season?

The Philadelphia 76ers agreed to a four-year partially-guaranteed contract with Pierre Jackson last week, but what will the guard's role be on the team next season?How about starting point guard?

Report: Joel Embiid rebroke same bone in his foot

Joel Embiid has yet to appear in an NBA game since he was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers last year, and you have to wonder if he ever will. Embiid is expected to miss the entire 2015-2016 season after suffering a setback in his surgically-repaired foot. Embiid missed all of his rookie season after surgery...Read More

Pierre Jackson’s Triumph to the Philadelphia 76ers

It is obvious that any attention paid to the Philadelphia 76ers this season will be to watch the highly praised and talented Jahlil Okafor, and it is for good reason. The 3rd overall pick in this year’s draft put up good numbers in the summer league averaging about 15 points per game and 8 rebounds per game, while showing off some great footwork in the post, and his gargantuan...

We are in the heart of summer league play and all eyes have been on the top picks ready to make an immediate impact on their team.

Joel Embiid needs another surgery, will miss season

It might be too early to claim that Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid’s career will end up going the way of other big men of the past, Greg Oden and Sam Bowie included. However, his early-career injuries are starting to raise some major questions marks. According to CSN Philly, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft is set to have a second surgery on his right foot...

Summer Sixers GM3: U-G-L-Y

Jordan McRae scored 19 points, Furkan Aldemir was a beast on the glass, Jerami Grant posterized a defender and the Summer Sixers staged a gutsy comeback on Thursday night.  Still, what really stood out last night was just how sloppy and slow the summer squad played for a large majority of their 84-78 OT loss to the Summer Jazz. The Summer Sixers turned the ball over 26 times, shot...

Iverson: The Ultimate Competitor

The back tab of the right Air Penny V displays a simple message: ‘The Storm is Over’ The epitaph is a nod to the fact that Penny’s career has passed, hence the storm being over. The shoe released in 2012, well after Hardaway’s retirement from the NBA, and served as an ode of sorts (It was clearly modeled after the Air Penny II – Penny’s most popular model). The sentiment...

76ers on winning side of atrocious salary dump by Kings

In the Summer of 2013, the Golden State Warriors gave up two likely late first round picks in order to clear the space to sign Andre Iguodala.

Taking a look at the Philadelphia Sixers' latest horde

​ For the second consecutive year, the Philadelphia 76ers entered the draft with a high lottery pick (No. 3 in both seasons) and a truckload of second-round picks. In 2014, the 76ers had a second lottery pick and five second-round picks, giving them seven in total.

Sixers forced to pay $3 mill for not disclosing Holiday injury?

When the Philadelphia 76ers traded Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans on draft day two years ago, a lot of people were caught by surprise. In addition to sending the sixth pick in that year’s draft, Nerlens Noel, the Pelicans yielded a first-round pick in the 2014 draft. Two years later, and it appears the Pelicans are receiving another piece in the trade. According to Keith...
