With a fresh start in Philadelphia, Alexey Shved believes he will get more opportunities than he had in his two seasons with the Timberwolves. In a three-team trade in August, former Wolves players Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute went to the 76ers and Kevin Love went to Cleveland. In turn, the Wolves received Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett from Cleveland and Thaddeus Young from the Sixers. "For me, it's much better because I can show my potential in the game," Shved said.

The phrase “he’s a character” was mentioned repeatedly throughout the 76ers’ locker room when discussing the rookie. Embiid has made a quick impression with his sense of humor, which has kept his teammates entertained early in the preseason. “He’s a funny kid,” Henry Sims said. “He’s enjoyable to be around. He has a fun-loving attitude, a carefree attitude.” Many say Embiid can be quiet at times, especially when first meeting someone, but once he loosens up he can command the floor. “Anything that comes out of his mouth, you’re going to bust out laughing,” Arnett Moultrie said. “He jokes a lot. He’s all-around funny.” Basketball Insiders

Friday at Richard Stockton College, the site of the team's training camp, managing owner Josh Harris told the media the Sixers plan to do what's best for them, though they also want to be “good citizens.” “It's a change that flattens the lottery system,” Harris said. “It would be a little bit worse for Philadelphia in the short run but long run, since we expect to be a consistent playoff or deep-caliber-playoff team, it's actually better for us. “We're certainly in that dialogue. There's 30 people and a league that have a lot of thoughts, so we're trying to build a consensus. My sense is whatever change gets made, it will be an incremental change — it won't change our strategy one way or the other. I generally feel like, when I watch the league in action in these situations, they do a very good job.” The Intelligencer

We're going to try very hard to win every game and I hope we win a lot more than we did last year, but we're focused on long-run goals.” The Intelligencer
