Turner is having a career year as the first offensive option. He heads into Monday averaging 21.6 points and shooting 47.7 percent from the field, which mark significant increases from last season’s 13.3 points and 41.9 percent. “(Brown) calls my number quite a bit,” Turner told reporters at Wednesday’s morning shootaround. “I’m fortunate my team looks for me. Sometimes in timeout plays, he looks for me. Compared to the past, it’s a little bit different.” Bucks County Courier Times

Nerlens has been rehabbing like a stud and the Sixers are taking the opportunity to totally rework his shot. "I think we have the perfect environment to do it because we have a whole year," Brown said. "We have taken him back to doing a lot of one-handed shooting. I can sense that he is shooting with two hands behind my back. But when he does that, the off hand comes in and elbows start flying, but when he does just one hand, he gets his elbow under it and it is a good looking shot. The first place you start is the free throw line because now he is going to turn and face. Noel really likes Kevin Garnett, a turn-and-face, jump-shooting big, and he aspires to be one of them even though he is a post player initially. I think the free throw is what carries over to the other parts of the game. And I hope we can get that right," Brown said. Philadelphia Inquirer

“Realistically, you know where you’re at,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said before the game, later adding that roster cuts will likely be made before Monday’s deadline. “There are a few positions – maybe as few as one – that you’re uncertain about. And we’ll try to learn more about that tonight.” Of particular note, Brown seemed to indicate that Royce White may have secured a roster spot, saying the Sixers “genuinely hope” it works out with him here. White (6-8, 260) was the 16th overall selection in the 2012 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets, but has a sometimes-debilitating anxiety disorder and prefers to travel by personal bus rather than plane because air travel has triggered panic attacks.

Brett Brown tried to clarify his Monday comments where the 76ers rookie head coach said he didn’t expect Nerlens Noel to play this season. At Tuesday’s practice, Brown said the decision whether the rookie will play “is going to made by a variety of a lot smarter people that me. Who knows what’s going to happen with Nerlens? We hope he can come back.” Philadelphia Inquirer

Monroe's situation, though, must sound good to 2010's No. 2 pick, since Evan Turner concedes he has pretty much no shot to score an extension with Philadelphia rebooting completely and management determined to dodge any sort of long-term obligation with anyone other than new head coach Brett Brown. The reality is that, with the Sixers as synonymous as any team hoping to wind up in Andrew Wiggins territory in next May's lottery, Turner is more likely to be traded than extended. ESPN.com

Sixers head coach Brett Brown said he heard Lavoy Allen overslept. Rookie guard Khalif Wyatt heard he was sick. Either way, Allen missed Saturday morning's open practice at The Palestra and Brown said he will take care of it. "It's all part of the culture, the culture we're trying to get right," said Brown. "We will deal with him, I will deal with him. What else can you say?" On Friday, Twitter posts reported that Allen was at Temple basketball's Cherry and White night at The Liacouras Center. Wyatt, a former Owls guard, was also at The Liacouras Center. Philadelphia Inquirer
