For a team unsure of how the lineup will look next season, without a coach, and with a lottery pick looming, the Sixers have kept things considerably quiet since the hiring of Sam Hinkie.

Friday, May 24, 2013, 4:12 PM
So the Sixers reward for struggling through the 2012-2013 season is the 11th overall pick in this June’s NBA draft; not high enough a pick to secure a certain superstar, yet just low enough to make the “who to draft” decision extremely difficult.

With the 11th pick, Sixers should draft for size

Tuesday, May 21, 2013, 3:24 PM
It is no secret that the Sixers need some size. If the team doesn’t decide to make an offer to ever-injured Andrew Bynum, that will leave Spencer Hawes and Kwame Brown to split center duties.

Hinkie hire should improve Sixers' offense

Friday, May 17, 2013, 4:02 PM
It’s no secret that the Sixers’ offense was painful to watch at times last season. Okay, it was downright difficult to watch a lot of the time last season. A lack of offensive weapons was part of the problem, but shot selection was central to the Sixers’ struggles. If you found... Read more
