Can the Knicks do better than a 30-33 year old Carmelo Anthony for their No. 1 or No. 2 player for the next four years and beyond? If yes, then trading him ahead of the 2014 deadline would be the quickest way to become elite. Read More. Written by Daniel Leroux on Dec 03, 2013
Michael Carter-Williams and Ben McLemore have been named the Rookies of the Month for October and November.
Carter-Williams (6-6, 185) was the 11th overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2013 NBA Draft following his sophomore season at Syracuse. So far this season, he is averaging 17 points, seven assists, five rebounds and a league-high three steals per game.
McLemore averaged 9.1 points , 2.9 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 22.8 minutes per game in 14 contests.
The Philadelphia 76ers want to continue playing an uptempo style on offense in transition, but their issues on defense have become problematic.
"I want to persevere with this style of playing because with the group that we have, the talent base and the experience, we are not going to beat those teams that we have beaten playing any other way," Brett Brown said.
The 76ers are averaging 17.8 turnovers per game, which had led to a lot of easy baskets for opponents.
The Philadelphia 76ers will officially retire Allen Iverson’s number “3” in a special halftime ceremony on Saturday, March 1, 2014 when the 76ers host the Washington Wizards.
Iverson led the 76ers to the 2001 NBA Finals.
“Allen Iverson is, without question, one of the most iconic players to ever wear the Sixers uniform,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Executive Officer Scott O’Neil. “Allen left everything out on the court and no one could ever question his heart – he was relentless, fearless and pound-for-pound, was one of the greatest to ever play the game.”
The Philadelphia 76ers have signed free agent guards Elliot Williams and Lorenzo Brown.
Williams (6-5, 190) was an early entry candidate for the 2010 NBA Draft following his sophomore season at Memphis and was selected with the 22nd overall pick by Portland. He played his freshman season at Duke. Williams appeared in 24 games for the Trail Blazers in 2011-12 and saw action in six games for Cleveland this preseason.
Brown (6-5, 186) was an early entry candidate for the 2013 NBA Draft following his junior season at N.C. State and was selected with the 52nd overall pick by Minnesota. He participated for the Timberwolves in both the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and in the preseason. Brown started 95 of his 101 games played with the Wolfpack and was named Second Team All-ACC as a junior and Third Team as a sophomore.
