The 76ers vs. Kings game will be postponed.
The floor is extremely wet, so it make no sense to put the athletes on the floor and risk injury. The Kings and 76ers are off tomorrow, but there is a concert at the Wells Fargo Center. Fans of The Process are likely greater than fans of Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown, so hopefully they can reschedule. Nov 30 - 7:09 PM

If the losses continue to pile up in Philadelphia, Bryan Colangelo could push management to fire head coach Brett Brown.

Brown was hired and extended under the former GM Sam Hinkie, but Colangelo has already pushed out most of Hinkie's former team. "Yeah, I'm aware of it," Brown said regarding being viewed with some increased scrutiny this season as the 76ers look to move away from outright tanking. "I'm not young anymore. I come in here and I do my job. I know what we do at practice. I know what goes on behind the scenes. I know the preparation we put into about everything."
Nov 9 - 10:27 AM

Coach Brett Brown hinted that the 76ers may add another point guard due to Jerryd Bayless' (wrist) injury.

"With the problem that we actually have right now without Jerryd, you search and you wonder," Brown said. "You got [rookie] Cat [Barber] you are looking at. We are obviously looking at the market place. We are going to look at Nik [Stauskas]." It sounds like the 76ers are preparing for a lengthy absence for Bayless, but for now T.J. McConnell and Sergio Rodriguez will split minutes at PG unless the 76ers make a move.

Brett Brown isn't worried about his job security in Philadelphia.

While Brown's record isn't anything to write home about, he should have some leeway with the rebuilding 76ers. "All my conversations with our owners and Jerry Colangelo and Bryan Colangelo, we’re all on the same page trying to do the same thing," Brown said. "My contract was extended last year, where I have now three years left on my contract." The Sixers will likely have another long season ahead of them, but it doesn't seem like Brown is on the chopping block just yet.

The 76ers are actively trying to add a veteran guard to their roster, and they are willing to overpay to do so.

The 76ers nearly shelled out a two-year deal with a $17 million annual salary to land Manu Ginobili, so it's clear that they are still on the market for a proven veteran guard to help guide some the younger guys through the rebuild. To name a few, Jason Terry, Mario Chalmers (Achilles), Norris Cole, Aaron Brooks, Steve Blake and Ty Lawson are all still available, but Lawson's offcourt issues likely have him well off the Philly radar.

Coach Brett Brown said the 76ers are "going to enter a legitimate approach to free agency" this summer.

The 76ers have the most cap room and could make a run at the high-end perimeter players in July. They stuck with Brown for his inventive strategy and they might actually be able to sell some players in joining up with the league's worst team in the last two seasons.

The 76ers have won the No. 1 pick in the draft lottery.

Their tanking has finally paid off and they will now likely choose between Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram at the top spot. Both Simmons and Ingram would have immediate fantasy value in Philly, though this does dampen the outlook of players such as Jerami Grant and Robert Covington. The Lakers kept their top-3 protected pick that was owed to Philly, so the 76ers will now receive the Lakers' 2017 1st-round pick which is also top-3 protected.

The 76ers might fire head coach Brett Brown and promote Mike D'Antoni, according to a report.

Ken Berger of CBS reports, "if D’Antoni, the Sixers’ associate head coach, gets offers elsewhere — besides Brooklyn, he could be a fit in Washington or Phoenix — then Colangelo may be tempted to let Brown go and bump D’Antoni up to head coach in order to keep him, sources say." Brown's job was thought to be safe, but it sounds like we could be in for some twists and turns in Philadelphia. Stay tuned.

Brett Brown's head coaching job with the 76ers is safe, according to league sources.

Speculation on Brown's job was the next logical step with Sam Hinkie resigning as general manager, but it would appear that he is safe for now. Brown is widely respected around the league despite his low win total, so it would be a surprise to see the Sixers part with him.
Apr 7 - 10:57 AM

Brett Brown recently met with veterans John Lucas and Chuck Hayes, and acknowledged that he's looking to add some veteran leadership to the young 76ers' roster.

Brown, however, stopped short of saying that Hayes or Lucas are a lock to wind up on the team: "We are looking at a lot of things. To say that they will join the team at this stage is not true." The veteran that signs with the 76ers will be there to act as a mentor, and not play major minutes, i.e. no fantasy value.

Brett Brown and the 76ers agreed to a two-year extension.

Brown has always been a good coach and he's basically made the most of his current roster. Brown's career coaching win percentage is basically ruined for his entire career, but things should get better for him in the next couple seasons.

Brett Brown admitted he sometimes feels the "enormity" of the SIxers rebuilding process.

"I wouldn't be telling you the truth if I said that I had thought in Year 3, this was the group I'd be coaching. I didn't realize the roster would play out like it has -- that last year would be almost a redshirt year, with Joel Embiid and Dario [Saric]," Brown said. Carl Landry is the only player on the team over 24 years old.

Brett Brown recently said that his team is "built to turn the ball over."

Tell us how you really feel, coach. "This team is built to turn the ball over. I hope it's not at that margin," Brown said. This quote came after a November 16 loss, and the Sixers are 0-3 since. Now 0-14 to begin their season, the Sixers will continue to search for their first win vs. Minnesota on Monday. It's hard to trust the process when the final picture is this distorted.

Coach Brett Brown is considering a change in his offense and slowing down the pace.

"I have to coach a program based on what I’m given," Brown said. "You hear me beating my chest all the time about pace, and it’s true. I’m not back-peddling. But there’s a realization where you have to use what you have." It makes sense with the two bigs on his roster. All this said, there shouldn't be a big change overall.

Brett Brown said that he would like to add another point guard to the roster if the 76ers are granted the hardship exception.

Another point guard would hurt the value of T.J. McConnell, and Brown's desire to add a fifth point guard to the roster would indicate that Tony Wroten (knee) and Kendall Marshall (knee) are still a ways away from making a return. The point guard situation in Philly is one we'd recommend avoiding in most leagues.
