Keith Pompey: Free agent to be Luc Mbah a Moute wants to remain with #Sixers: "When you been through a season like this, when you see ups and downs, you see glimpses of what could be. You want to be a part of it. You want to be there when things turn around and we finally get hopefully that right team and become a good team. So yeah, that's what I'm thinking now." #NBA #PompeyOnSixers Instagram

The 26-year-old Smith is definitely an intriguing player. Even if it’s in a backup role. “That’s OK with me,” Smith said. “I just surprised myself as a starter. I am not going to lie. I’m sure it surprised everybody in the NBA. Hopefully, wherever it might be, I am ready. I have a lot to work on, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know I have more that I can give. I’m not going to take much time off. I’m getting right back at it.” NBA.com

Jason Richardson is open to re-signing with the 76ers this summer. The 34-year-old envisions himself in a similar role to the one he had this season. He would mentor his young teammates, be a positive influence and receive some playing time - maybe just not as the starting shooting guard. "I don't have a problem coming back here," said Richardson, whose contract expires in June. "I like every guy in this locker room, believe it or not. . . . And I love coach Brett [Brown]. He's one of my favorite coaches of all time. So, yeah, I'm really open to [coming] back." Philadelphia Inquirer

Orazio Cauchi: I've mentioned this before but I can confirm what @Derek Bodner just said: no NBA buyout in Saric's deal for this summer. It's very very unlikely that Saric will join the #sixers next season. In 2016 there will be more possibilities, that's for sure. #NBA Twitter

Embiid's work ethic has been questioned by some inside the organization. The whispers ended after the center started doing on-court drills in March. However, a blow-up with assistant strength and conditioning coach James Davis was one of the reasons Embiid was sent home during a West Coast road trip in December. After he underwent surgery for a fractured right foot in June, Embiid missed his entire rookie season while rehabilitating his leg. Philadelphia Inquirer

An altercation with Davis during the West Coast trip, coupled with Brown's wanting him to be in "more of a structured, stable environment," prompted the Sixers to send him home, the sources said. "If you can't coach your best players, I call it buying time and dying," Brown said. "You have nothing. . . . "I tell my guys, you want me to coach you. You want to show up on time. You want to do the right thing. You want to act the right way." Philadelphia Inquirer
