Asked if he’s thought about this offseason, and the possibility that he name will again surface in trade rumors, Young said he hasn’t thought about it. But when he was asked again about joining Leonard in San Antonio, he smiled saying: “It can happen. Like I said, I can play with anybody.” San Antonio Express-News

The Sixers have acquired multiple draft picks — they could have two first-rounders and a flurry of second-rounders in June — and created salary-cap space. The NBA has no qualms with Philadelphia's approach, which includes taking a look at young players who could be part of the future. "They have a plan," Thorn said. "Their plan is 'We're stuck in the middle here. … We don't want to be stuck here. We want to accumulate all the assets we possibly can.' … They knew they weren't going to be very good but as quickly as they can, they want to get back to the point where they can compete for the big prize."

Young is the odd man out. He was the player left behind by the Sixers, who sent away Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen Feb. 20 in trade deadline deals. Young has been told that the Sixers want him around as they rebuild the franchise. He is under contract through next season, during which he’ll earn $9.16 million. He also holds a player option for the 2015-16 season worth $9.72 million, which he could decline if he’d prefer to leave the Sixers in favor of signing with a contending team. “It’s a lot of money to leave on the table. At the end of the day, I’m not a guy that spends a lot of money. It’s definitely a card that can be played,” Young said Friday, before the Sixers hosted New York. “That depends on many different factors. Obviously, I want to win. Obviously, I want to be winning on a championship team. At the end of the day, like I said, it’s a card that could be played. “Right now, I’m not even thinking about playing that card. I’m just thinking about finishing this season off and getting into the summer and enjoying my family and getting back next year and being ready.” Delaware County Daily Times

The agent for 76ers guard Tony Wroten and a spokesman for Michael Jordan denied to ESPN on Friday that Wroten had received an apology from Jordan after one of his Nike brand Air Jordan sneakers fell apart during a loss to the Pacers on March 14 in Philadelphia, contrary to what Wroten told reporters Wednesday. In a tweet on Friday afternoon, Wroten admitted to speaking about Michael Jordan but insisted he was joking: "MJ NEVER called and apologized. I was joking around with a local reporter saying "yea he should call me agent" not knowing I would be quoted," he tweeted. Delaware News Journal

Tony Wroten said he received an apology from Michael Jordan after one of the 76ers guard's Nike basketball shoes fell apart during a loss against the Indiana Pacers on Friday in Philadelphia. "It was more embarrassing than anything," Wroten said Wednesday. "But things happen. I got an apology from Jordan. Yeah. … He called my agent." Wroten, who is known around the NBA for his vast shoe collection, made highlight reels for the wrong reason when the sole tore off the Air Jordan 10 "varsity red" sneaker on his right foot during a fourth-quarter drive to the basket. The shoes were first released in 2005. Delaware News Journal

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.
