Chad Ford: I've heard a lot of rumblings from GMs that Carter-Williams is available. There are some in ownership and in the front office, though not all, that don't see him as a long-term piece of the puzzle. There was a lot of chatter that direction before the draft and in the past few weeks I know several teams have had exploratory discussions with the Sixers. I think the challenge right now is that the Sixers will want a lot in return and MCW's play, to date this season, hasn't warranted multiple first round picks for him. That makes him tough to deal.

Q: MCW. Some say it wouldn't be fair to judge considering his supporting cast, but he doesn't look good. In fact he looks awful. MCW doesn't seem like the type of player an analytic driven FO would consider long term. Will Hinkie try again to deal MCW?

Michael Carter-Williams scored 20 points, grabbed eight rebounds and handed out 15 assists in the 76ers' overtime win over the Pistons. MCW has scored at least 16 points, hauled in at least seven rebounds and handed out seven or more assists in each of his last five games. Only one other player in the history of the 76ers/Nats had a streak like that. Wilt Chamberlain had three streaks like that in a 76ers uniform, with a career long of 14 consecutive games in 1967-68.

After Monday’s loss to the Spurs the Sixers sit at 0-17 to start the season; one game away from tying the NBA’s all-time record for worst start to a season, two away from breaking it. While the Sixers flirted with the history books last season by embarking on the record-tying 26-game winless streak, they were ultimately happy to avoid the distinction of longest losing streak. “It’s not something I wanted to be part of,” Michael Carter-Williams said at the time, “so it’s great we got that win.” Philadelphia Inquirer

“I actually like what they are doing,” Barkley said recently. ”They have got a bright future. They got the Rookie of the Year (Michael Carter-Williams), they got (Nerlens) Noel back, I think he is going to be a good player. I am not playing (Joel) Embiid this year, I am not playing him. I am going to get another lottery pick next year, and I got four studs going forward — I’ve got a point guard, I’ve got a power forward, I’ve got a legit center. They’re hoping, in three or four years, they can be what Oklahoma City is now.” Sporting News

When specifically asked if had seen or heard Smith's comments, Carter-Williams said, "I came across it because people told me about them. I have seen things on Twitter, but again, none of that fazes me too much." The reason Carter-Williams wrote the article in the first place was to express himself in a way he doesn't feel he can when he answers questions from the media. "I just felt I had something that I needed to say," Carter-Williams said. "I can't really say it too much in the media. It is hard for me to form my words when I don't have the time to think about it and really express myself." CSNPhilly.com

Michael Carter-Williams: The media creates this narrative and repeats it over and over. That’s how Stephen A. Smith ends up in our locker room with a big smile on his face. I’m not picking on him. I know he’s playing a character. He knows he’s playing a character. But what happens when we break the streak by going out and beating Detroit that night? Now it’s another story. After the game, a lot of the reporters didn’t even stick around. The ones that did weren’t prepared. They didn’t ask us about the specifics of the game. They made up questions on the spot, like, “Uh, hey, you guys won … so how do you feel?” The Players' Tribune
