Sixers Called Lakers On LeBron James; Suns On Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Bradley Beal

Feb 14, 2024 8:38 AM

The Philadelphia 76ers called the Los Angeles Lakers as to the availability of LeBron James via trade. Daryl Morey reportedly made this call after James cryptically posted an hourglass emoji in the days leading up to the deadline.

When the Lakers countered by asking about the availability of Joel Embiid, Morey turned his sites to the Phoenix Suns. The Sixers first asked about Kevin Durant, before inquiring about Devin Booker and Bradley Beal.

Going after stars isn't a new tactic for Morey. He's known as one of the league's more aggressive executives in pursuing stars via trade. Morey going star-hunting at this deadline may give some insight into his offseason plans.

The 76ers are likely to hit the offseason with somewhere between $40 and $60 million in cap space. That could go a long way towards trading for a star to team Embiid and a re-sign Tyrese Maxey.

Kyle Lowry Will Join Sixers After Buyout From Hornets

Feb 10, 2024 10:14 PM

Kyle Lowry has reached a buyout agreement with the Charlotte Hornets. He's now set to join his hometown team, the Philadelphia 76ers, after he clears waivers.

Lowry was traded to the Hornets from the Miami Heat ahead of the trade deadline. The veteran point guard and Charlotte agreed he wouldn't report to the team. When the Hornets couldn't re-trade Lowry, they worked a buyout agreement.

Lowry has long wanted to play for the Sixers. He grew up in Philadelphia and played his college ball at Villanova. Now, he'll get a chance to return home and to reunite with Nick Nurse, who was his coach with the Toronto Raptors.

Sixers Weren't Willing To Trade Tobias Harris For Bojan Bogdanovic, Alec Burks

Feb 10, 2024 9:37 AM

The Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons discussed trades ahead of the deadline. Philadelphia was interested in adding Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks, but they weren't willing to trade Tobias Harris to do it.

Detroit's interest in reuniting with Harris has been rumored for a while now. The Pistons could pursue Harris when he becomes a free agent this summer.

The Sixers couldn't afford to give up Harris, as he's a key player for them, especially in the wake of Joel Embiid's knee surgery. Philadelphia could seek to work a new deal with Harris when he's a free agent this summer.

Bogdanovic and Burks were ultimately traded to the New York Knicks. The Pistons received Quentin Grimes, two second-round picks and a collection of matching salaries from the Knicks in the deal.

Sixers Plan On Pursuing Paul George In Free Agency If He Doesn't Extend With Clippers

Feb 8, 2024 3:49 PM

The Philadelphia 76ers plan on aggressively pursuing Paul George in free agency if he doesn't sign an extension with the Los Angeles Clippers, reports Chris Haynes.

George and the Clippers have held discussions and a deal is widely expected to be eventually reached. 

George is averaging 22.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 33.8 minutes over 47 games this season.

George signed a four-year, $176 million extension with the Clippers in 2020 with a player option for 24-25. 

The Sixers made a number of moves that maintained their cap space for the 2024 offseason at the deadline. 

"That's his leverage," said Ramona Shelburne of Philadelphia.
