Click for full story. In his latest NBA Chatter column, Marc Stein says the Sixers are one of three teams in the hunt for Memphis PF Hakim Warrick. Up until last week, Warrick was a restricted free agent, but Memphis cut ties with him, possibly because they're hoping to find 40 shots/game for Zach Randolph.

Click for full story. While the future of the Sixers rests squarely on the shoulders of Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Marreese Speights, Lou Williams and Jrue Holiday, the 2009-2010 season will most likely be defined by the biggest acquisition from 2008. A guy we haven't heard a whole lot about since he went down in February, Elton Brand.

Click for full story. As much time as I've spent worrying about the Sixers starting lineup this season, I really haven't given much thought to the overall rotation. Now is as good a time as any to kick off the discussion. The best place to start is the sixth man.

Click for full story. A rumored swap of big men got me thinking about our very own man in the middle. Apparently, New Orleans and Charlotte are talking about a deal sending Emeka Okafor to the Big Easy, and Tyson Chandler back east to the Bobcats. After the jump, we'll throw Sammy into the discussion as well and see where he ranks among these bigs.

Click for full story. Well, it's a done deal folks. Andre Miller was signed by the Portland Trailblazers. The deal was for 3 years, $21M (the third year is some kind of team option). I truly believe Miller sealed his fate in Philly by skipping his exit interview, and as a franchise it's officially time for the Sixers to move on.

Click for full story. Tom Moore has the scoop on the Sixers' pursuit of CJ Watson. In a nutshell, his sources tell him the Sixers are still interested, but only want to offer a one-year deal. Watson wants two years. After the jump, I've got a solution that may help solve more than one problem.

Click for full story. David Thorpe released his Rookie Watch column yesterday. His assessments are based on the Summer Leagues, the playing time opportunities for the players and their talent, as he perceives it. After the jump we'll see what he had to say about Jrue Holiday.

Click for full story. As the summer wears on and the storylines grow scarce I'm forced to turn to extremely unusual places for inspiration. Last night, it was late night Cinemax (not quite that late, though.) Richard Prior's remake of Brewster's Millions was on and obviously, it got me thinking about the Sixers.

Click for full story. The Sixers' backcourt has garnered the lion's share of attention so far this summer, and rightly so, but there are issues up front as well. After the jump I'll lay out what I think the rotations at the four and the five should look like.

Click for full story. Over the weekend a few rumors broke regarding point guards named Watson. Earl was bought out by OKC, and the Magic were rumored to be considering signing CJ to an offer sheet. Thoughts on both situations after the jump.

Click for full story. The free agent market is far from closed, but with each passing day the odds of the Sixers picking up a starter shrink. At some point we need to turn our attention to the roster we have, while I don't think we're quite there yet, there is one nagging question in the back of my mind.
