As the 76ers head into July’s Summer Leagues, the team’s projected regular season roster remains filled with holes.  The recently-passed 2015 NBA Draft may have actually provided more questions than answers regarding the rebuild. The organization’s selection of Jahlil Okafor with the third overall pick added to the team’s overall talent pool and frontcourt depth, but it...

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. But, after four trades on the night of that draft, the 76ers came away with six players in total, plus a future...

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...

Philadelphia 76ers: Why They Were NBA Draft Losers

(June 24, 2015 – Source: Elsa/Getty Images North America) By Tashan Reed: Lead Writer at Hoopstuff… The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t draft losers because of who they selected with the 3rd overall pick, Jahlil Okafor.

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

Despite a Front Court Loaded with Potential, Don’t Expect to see the 76ers in the Playoffs Anytime Soon

The Philadelphia 76ers are relying on young players like Nerlens Noel to get them back to the post-season. With the 3rd overall pick in last night’s draft, the Philadelphia 76ers took prized Duke center, Jahlil Okafor. At 6-11 and 270 pounds, the Duke prospect has the size, instincts and talent to become a key cog in the 76ers’ game-plan. With the addition of Okafor, the 76ers...

Joel Embiid Amused By The Philadelphia Sixers’ Hoarding Of 7-Footers

The Philadelphia 76ers are now the home of the 7-footers.  The Sixers got former Kansas big man Joel Embiid and former Kentucky star Nerlens Noel in previous drafts.

76ers select Jahlil Okafor No. 3 overall

As the 2015 NBA Draft rolled on, the Philadelphia 76ers were on the clock with the No. 3 overall pick. Speculation leading up to the draft linked the 76ers to D’Angelo Russell and Kristaps Porzingis. However, that all changed when the Los Angeles Lakers went with the Ohio State guard No. 2 overall rather than selecting Duke standount Jahlil Okafor. As a result, Okafor went No....
