Brett Brown understands the questions that are being raised about the 76ers this season, but he remains focuses on the long-term goals of the franchise.
"We believe in what we are doing," Brown said. "We understand what the argument is: 'Did you go too far? Could you have done something different?' We understand all of that… I hope that people remember the whole process as one where a lot of sacrifices were made to move the program forward." Of the 12 healthy players on the roster, only three were first-round draft picks, two were second-rounders, and the rest of the team is a collection of undrafted free agents. The Sixers could also finish this season with the worst record in NBA history, and Brown wouldn’t even be in the hot seat. The takeaway here, from a fantasy perspective, is that opposing teams will regularly put up big stat lines vs. the Tankers. Fri, Nov 28, 2014 08:45:00 AM

Brett Brown will start Tony Wroten, Hollis Thompson, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel, and Henry Sims for the 76ers preseason opener vs. the Celtics on Monday.

Yuck, that's not a very appetizing starting five. That means that Micheal Carter-Williams will not play as he continues to recover from offseason shoulder surgery, while Mbah a Moute has recovered from an ankle sprain he was dealing with earlier. The 76ers starting rotation will likely fluctuate greatly throughout the year, but we'll be keeping an eye on how Henry Sims and K.J. McDaniels fare during tonight's exhibition contest.

The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly interested in acquiring the first pick in the 2014 NBA Draft from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Sixers reportedly would like to take Andrew Wiggins with the third pick in the first round, but the problem is that he may not be there when they pick. As such, the team has inquired about trading for the Cavs' first pick in order to ensure that they get their man. Philadelphia reportedly isn't willing to give up their third and 10th picks in exchange for the No. 1 selection, but they are reportedly willing to give up the No. 3 pick and power forward Thaddeus Young. Wiggins' addition to the 76ers would give the team a talented swingman and would allow the Big 12 freshman of the year plenty of minutes to be a productive fantasy asset.

Sixers owner Josh Harris called the 2013-14 season a "huge success" on Friday.

"We want to be an elite team, challenging for a title as soon as possible," Harris said. He also mentioned he doesn't use the word "tanking" during his interview. Despite a 26-game losing streak allowing a league-worst 109.9 points per game, they still managed a better record than the Milwaukee Bucks. The Sixers are armed with their draft pick as well as New Orleans', so they'll have an opportunity to turn things around.

The 76ers have set a new NBA record by allowing their opponents to make at least 15 three-pointers in six games.

Head coach Brett Brown blamed the 3-point deluge on his team's "energy-related issues," but the Sixers have only played 26 games and will quickly put the record out of reach unless they tighten their perimeter defense. Fantasy owners should continue to exploit any matchup with the Sixers, who are also yielding a league-worst 111.2 points per game (the Lakers are second at 103.4 ppg).

Former Pistons head coach John Kuester is in line to become Brett Brown's lead assistant coach in Philadelphia.

Kuester's tenure with the Pistons didn't go well and he was demoted to a scouting position for the Lakers last season. Brown is going to need some NBA experience on his bench, but we're not sure Kuester is the right choice. Then again, the Sixers appear to be in tank-mode after dumping Jrue Holiday and having a hole at shooting guard this season, and Kuester will apparently have a big role on the bench this season.

The Sixers hired Chad Iske as an assistant coach for Brett Brown's staff.

Iske started as an intern back in 1999 and has been working his way up the NBA ladder. He spent 14 years with the Nuggets and was responsible for player development under George Karl.

The Sixers have agreed to hire former Grizzlies assistant coach Lloyd Pierce.

Philly is rebuilding their organization from the ground up, and Pierce will have a big role guiding his young team alongside rookie head coach Brett Brown. It's no coincidence that most of Pierce's NBA coaching career has focused on player development.

Sixers head coach Brett Brown informed Michael Curry, Aaron McKie, and Jeff Capel Thursday night they would not be a part of his staff.

Those three coaches were on Doug Collins' staff and it was unlikely that Brown was going to keep them. The former Spurs assistant has a long way to go and the team gave him a four-year deal to try and turn the Sixers around. They are one of the favorites to have the worst record in the NBA in the 2013-14 season.

Brett Brown says he wouldn't have taken the 76ers head coach job without a four-year commitment from GM Sam Hinkie.

Brown was pretty clear he's going into this job with his eyes wide open. The former Spurs assistant knows the 76ers are rebuilding, a process he acknowledged takes time. Brown said rebuilds can be "painful," but he was also pretty high on the 76ers' collection of young talent. Brown went out of his way to compliment Thaddeus Young and, according to beat writers, his eyes lit up when asked about Nerlens Noel. It's going to be a rough 2013-14 season, but the hire could pay off in the long run.

New Sixers coach Brett Brown played college basketball for Rick Pitino at Boston University.

Pitino, of course, is well known for his uptempo style. Given the Sixers' young, athletic core of Thaddeus Young, Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, we suspect Brown will try to play uptempo as well. The man credited with developing both Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker got a four-year contract because he knows developing this Sixers team is going to take lots of time. They're firmly in the hunt for Andrew Wiggins.

The 76ers have requested permission to interview Spurs assistant Brett Brown for their head coaching vacancy.

Brown has emerged as a 'strong contender' for the Nuggets job, but he's also a real candidate for the Sixers, especially since GM Sam Hinkie reportedly wants to hire a young coach. Brown is the latest in a long line of Spurs' assistants with head coach abilities, just one more reason for San Antonio's perennial success.
