76ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Philadelphia wasn't all that bad during the 12-13 season; the season before they drafted Noel, the season before Hinkie took over as general manager.

On the Waterfront: 76ers set for practice facility opening

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The dazzling rookie with the longest-lasting impact for the Philadelphia 76ers this season might not be Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid or Dario Saric: It could be the 125,000-square foot complex the Sixers expect to set the standard in the NBA.

Gregg Popovich without question is one of the most curmudgeonly coaches in all of sport. But even someone as gruff and cantankerous as the longtime San Antonio Spurs head coach cannot help but continue to feel a little a little sting over something as professionally and personally profound as Tim Duncan’s recent retirement. After all, the two spent nearly two decades working...

Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel trade rumors resurface

The Philadelphia 76ers are dead set on trading one of Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel sooner rather than later. This isn’t necessarily a new development, but the NBA draft passed without either big man getting moved. The lack of a deal made it seem like the 76ers simply wanted too much in return for either. According to a new note by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the 76ers...
