Jonah Bolden will play for Maccabi Tel Aviv next season.

The Sixers selected Bolden with the 36th pick in last month's draft. He was set to play for Red Star Belgrade but has decided to sign with Maccabi. Stashing him overseas allows Philadelphia to preserve a roster spot. Depending on how he performs this season, Bolden may be in Philly by 2018-19.
Jul 21 - 9:20 AM

Jonah Bolden will spend the 2017-18 season overseas.

Bolden averaged 8.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game through five Summer League games with the 76ers, but he was always expected to head overseas for the 2017-18 season as a draft-and-stash prospect.
Jul 17 - 7:00 PM

Furkan Korkmaz scored 22 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Bulls on Friday.

Additionally, he's catching a flight tonight to play in the under-20 European Championship in Greece and he'll be out there until July 23. Regarding tonight, Korkmaz looked more comfortable with the ball in his hands and he showed he's not just a shooter. He still may not be in the rotation to start his NBA career.
Jul 14 - 10:07 PM

Markelle Fultz (ankle) got shots up at practice on Friday.

That's a great sign after suffering a scary ankle sprain on July 8. Fultz was originally expected to miss 1-2 weeks back on July 9, so he appears to be right on schedule. Before his injury, he was spectacular in Utah Summer League with most of his production coming on the ball. With Ben Simmons expected to handle the rock and Joel Embiid likely to have one of the top usage rates among all NBA bigs, Fultz will need to be off the ball more to boost his scoring.
Jul 14 - 9:25 PM

Alex Poythress and Larry Drew II will not play on Friday.

The 76ers will start Isaiah Briscoe, James Blackmon, Furkan Korkmaz, Jonah Bolden and Charles Jackson for their last Vegas game. Expect to see a lot of Korkmaz and Bolden as the rookies look to show some more to their eye-catching events.
Jul 14 - 2:35 PM

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (lip) will not play on Friday, but will play for the French team this summer.

He was hurt on the same play Markelle Fultz (ankle) suffered his injury, but this one isn't as severe. Luwawu-Cabarrot has grown a lot in the last 12 months and the French team is not going to have Tony Parker, so TLC should be a factor.
Jul 14 - 2:32 PM

Joel Embiid (knee) will not play for Team World in the NBA Africa Game on Aug. 5.

He has been going through his rehab from his surgery on a torn meniscus. Embiid has been with the team for practice and has even been dunking, but he may not be 100 percent just yet. The best rookie of 2016-17 is still expected to be ready for training camp.
Jul 13 - 11:09 PM

Timothe Luwawu exited Wednesday's game after getting hit in his stitched lip.

A lacerated lip has already cost TLC a few games in Vegas, which is unfortunate from a development standpoint. His stitches were intact after tonight's contact, however, and if this were the regular season he might have played through it.
Jul 13 - 12:18 AM

J.J. Redick said that he hopes to finish his career with the 76ers.

"My hope is that this is a long-term thing and that I'm here three or four years and can finish my career as a Sixer," Redick said. "I really believe this is a team that over the next three or four years will become the best team in the East. I hope I'm sort of part of that rise just beyond this year because I think we can be a playoff team and I think in the next two or three years we can contend for conference championships and hopefully at some point NBA championships." Trust the process.

Timothe Luwawu (cut lip) will be available to play in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Celtics.

TLC missed Philly's past two Summer League games due to the laceration on his lip that required five stitches to close, but he should be back out there for some limited minutes in tonight's meaningless game against Boston.
Jul 11 - 4:09 PM

Ben Simmons said that he believes he is "a starting point guard."

The Sixers began grooming Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft, as a point guard last year. However, the Sixers then traded up to draft Markelle Fultz in June and signed J.J. Redick to a $23-million contract this month. It will be difficult to find enough minutes for all three players in the same backcourt. Ideally, Simmons would be content playing more of a hybrid 'point forward' role in the offense. This is a situation to keep an eye on in the preseason.
Jul 11 - 1:05 PM

Sixers second-round pick Mathias Lessort received clearance from FIBA and is eligible to make his Summer League debut on Tuesday night.

Lessort was the 50th overall selection in the 2017 draft. He is expected to spend at least one season overseas, as the Sixers preference is to stash him there and avoid using a roster spot on yet another big man.
Jul 11 - 12:17 PM

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (mouth) is questionable to play in Tuesday's Summer League exhibition.

Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo said during a live telecast on Sunday that TLC needed five stitches and lost part of a tooth after getting hit on Saturday. He was "dazed" after the injury but it sounds like a concussion was ruled out, which is great news.
Jul 10 - 12:50 AM

Ben Simmons (right foot surgery) said during ESPN's telecast on Sunday that he's resumed playing 5-on-5.

He also noted that coach Brett Brown "wants to start [Simmons] at the point," but that he and rookie Markelle Fultz should each find their role depending on the situation. Simmons is expected to be ready for opening night but Brown recently said it would be "very ambitious" to play him without a minute-limit, which dents his fantasy appeal.
Jul 9 - 11:02 PM

Timothe Luwawu (cut lip) will not suit up for Sunday's Summer League game against the Spurs.

Luwawu will be re-evaluated ahead of Tuesday's exhibition against the Celtics, but this obviously isn't anything that will impact his status for training camp.
