And what if the Sixers end up with Duke center Jahlil Okafor or Kentucky big man Karl-Anthony Towns in the draft? They already have a core center in 7-footer Joel Embiid, who is sitting out his rookie season with a foot stress fracture. “I really hope nothing happens,” Noel said last week. “I like this team. I like what we're building. I hope we can stick together and continue to grow.” Noel is confident that he and Embiid — with Embiid likely playing power forward on offense and center at the defensive end — will turn out to be a terrific tandem. “Jo is going to get more and more healthy and more active,” Noel said. “I see things really taking shape (next season).” Still, Noel gets that “at the end of the day, it is a business. You always have to keep that in mind. You've just got to do what you've got to do, work on your thing.” The Intelligencer

In an unnoticed development at last week’s trade deadline, the 76ers were still trying to trade up for a top pick in this draft, indicating a willingness to talk about Joel Embiid or any player on their team, an NBA source told Forbes.com. Yes, that’s the Joel Embiid they drafted No. 3 overall last spring, after compiling the worst record and seeing the Cavaliers and Bucks jump ahead of them in the lottery. In other words, after going 65-144 over the last two-plus seasons and parting with Jrue Holiday, Nikola Vucevic, Louis Williams, Thaddeus Young, Jodie Meeks, Spencer Hawes, Nick Young and Andre Iguodala, the 76ers don’t have an asset on the lot whom they’re committed to.

The McGee deal was a little tougher for Denver to swallow. But in the Nuggets minds, McGee had to go. Beyond McGee's contract, which will pay him $12 million next season, Connelly and Shaw believe in building a winning culture in Denver and there was a strong sentiment inside the walls of the Pepsi Center that McGee’s presence was adversely affecting that. And as difficult as it was to part with the pick—which, if you are scoring at home, belonged to Oklahoma City and is 1-18 protected this season and lottery protected for the next two—the Nuggets believe that the $11.2 million trade exception that was created in the deal will be useful in acquiring a more valuable asset down the line. And the Nuggets could have five first round picks over the next three years anyway. Sports Illustrated

THE TOP 50 PLAYERS IN SIXERS HISTORY

The 76ers have more MVPs than any other franchise outside of Lakers and Celtics, so the team's Top 50 is obviously stacked with talent.
