  • Wizards know Sixers' former 1st overall pick Ben Simmons presents unique threat

    The Philadelphia 76ers, amazingly, will have not one but two No. 1 overall draft picks making their NBA debuts on Wednesday night when the Wizards host the Sixers in their regular season opener at Capital One Arena. Markelle Fultz is getting much of the hype and understandably. Wizards head coach Scott Brooks has already watched some of the limited film available on the 2016 top pick and he likes what he sees.

  • Bradley Beal loves Sixers' Joel Embiid's trash-talking, just don't try it on the Wizards

    There may not be another athlete, regardless of sport, that is as good at social media as Sixers center Joel Embiid. Everyone seems to be laughing, expect Heat center Hassan Whiteside perhaps. Embiid and Whiteside have been in an on-court and off-court beef for a while now.

  • Sixers to keep Joel Embiid’s minutes in teens to start season, he’s not happy

    Joel Embiid wants to get on the court, he wants to unleash himself on the NBA this season. After three seasons of being bottled up — even in the 31 games he has played there was a minutes restriction — Embiid wants to impose his will on the league. Sixers coach Brett Brown says to start the season there will be a tight minutes limit on Embiid, who averaged less than 15 minutes in two preseason games after finally being cleared to play.

  • Emeka Okafor and Kendrick Perkins are going to the G-League

    Emeka Okafor and Kendrick Perkins do battle, either several lifetimes ago or in 2013. If you’re a traditional big man who can’t shoot 3-pointers or tread water in the deep end of the defensive pool at the 3-point arc, the NBA in the fall of 2017 is a tough place to make a living. Emeka Okafor has agreed to play for the Philadelphia 76ers’ G League team, the Delaware 87ers, in hopes of signing with an NBA team in the coming months, league sources told ESPN.

  • Markelle Fultz likely to start season on bench for Sixers

    Fultz played a total of 47 minutes over just two games. When asked if Fultz will start, Brown said "I don't believe so" and noted the lack of in-game experience. Fultz is willing to accept his assignment, whether it is in the starting five or a reserve unit.

  • Markelle Fultz's NBA career will start on the Philadelphia 76ers' bench mob

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz will start his NBA career on Philadelphia’s second unit. Markelle Fultz’s NBA debut against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday evening will serve as an inauspicious homecoming of sorts for the D.C. native. After a preseason spent battling a mysterious shoulder issue that altered his shooting mechanics before a knee injury cost him two more exhibition games, the No. 1 overall pick will begin his rookie season on the bench for the Philadelphia 76ers.

  • Sources: Emeka Okafor to join Sixers' G League team with hopes of playing in NBA again

    Emeka Okafor has agreed to play for the Philadelphia 76ers' G League team, the Delaware 87ers, in hopes of signing with an NBA team in the coming months, league sources told ESPN. Okafor, the second overall pick in the 2004 NBA draft, was in training camp with the 76ers before the club waived him on Saturday.
