Trevelin Queen has impressive debut in Sixers’ summer league win

Photo by Mary Kate Ridgway/NBAE via Trevelin Queen and Charlie Brown Jr. provided energy at the wings in the Sixers’ summer league win. The summer Sixers picked up their first win as they took down the Jazz, 86-82. Paul Reed, Isaiah Joe, and Jaden Springer all sat tonight due to reconditioning in a reasonably low scoring game. There was still some excitement as 2021-22 G League MVP Trevelin Queen made his summer debut for the Sixers. Here are some thoughts on how the key summer Sixers looked tonight. Charles Bassey: 17 points, 9 rebounds, 4 steals As a second-year...

Eventful day for P.J. Tucker, Danuel House Jr.; and of course, Jimmy Butler sneaks in on the action

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports Sixers officially sign P.J. Tucker and Danuel House Jr. while Jimmy Butler leaps into the fray with some playful trash talk. When NBA Summer League begins it’s usually a slow time of year in the NBA. But the Kevin Durant trade request bombshell has changed the whole vibe a bit. Things almost seem to be on pause. But still, the Sixers had some good news Wednesday. Their two new signings in P.J. Tucker and Danuel House Jr. became official! The Sixers were able to pursue both because James Harden opted out of his $47.4M player option and...

Summer Sixers Game Thread vs. Utah

Summer Sixers Game Thread vs. Utah

Photo by Alex Goodlett/ The Summer Sixers look to bounce back from a close loss last night to Memphis when they go up against the Jazz. The Summer Sixers dropped their 2022 opener last night, 103-99, to Memphis. Be sure to read our Harrison Grimm’s takeaways from the game, but here are some of my quick thoughts as well. Paul Reed should absolutely have first crack at the backup center job heading into the season. I understand why the Sixers have him playing here — to work on his perimeter defense and outside game offensively to continue evaluating whether he can...

Summer Sixers Game Thread vs. Memphis

Photo by Ethan Miller/ The 2022 edition of the Summer Sixers tip off for the first time tonight in Salt Lake City against the Grizzlies. Almost two months have passed since the Philadelphia 76ers were eliminated by the Miami Heat in the 2021 Eastern Conference Semifinals. Since then, we have seen players drafted, free agents signed, members of the Sixers star in a cinematic universe, and a newsworthy party in the Hamptons. But no Sixers basketball. Until now. Kind of. The Summer Sixers are back! As a reminder, they will be playing three games in Salt Lake City before...

Philly basketball and hip-hop collide in the Hamptons

Philly basketball and hip-hop collide in the Hamptons

“Joel’s here, PJ’s here, James Harden’s here, Meek Mill’s here!” In my mind, hip-hop and basketball pair together like fine wine and a classical piano. The two can be enjoyed separately, of course, but when combined the experience is better than a sum of its parts. Over the weekend, former-Sixers minority owner Michael Rubin hosted a Hampton house party that combined hip-hop and basketball to the fullest. Rocking all-white clothes as an homage to P-Diddy’s infamous all-white parties from the 90’s and 00’s, artists like Drake, Travis Scott, and Lil Baby...

Despite opting into his player option for 2022-23, the mercurial but ultra-talented Irving appears to be on the market after future HOFer Kevin Durant asked for a trade out of Brooklyn. Chris...

Where the Sixers’ salary cap stands heading into James Harden’s contract negotiations

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports After agreeing to terms with P.J. Tucker, Danuel House Jr. and Trevelin Queen, how much space do the Sixers still have under the apron? When James Harden declined his $47.4 million player option for the 2022-23 season on Wednesday, he gave the Sixers a pathway to both the $10.5 million non-taxpayer mid-level exception and the $4.1 million bi-annual exception. They didn’t waste any time putting both to use once free agency officially began at 6 p.m. ET Thursday. The Sixers agreed to a fully guaranteed three-year, $33.2 million deal with...
