July 9, 2014 Updates

Q: With taking Joel Embiid (sidelined probably for year) and Dario Saric (at least 2 more years in Turkey) do you look at Brett Brown at some point and maybe apologize? Sam Hinkie: I think Brett and I have been in lockstep so far. We really have. Behind closed doors he and I talk a lot about our program, and where it needs to build and where to find value in the kinds of decisions that are easy and the kinds of decisions that are hard, and really what the end in mind is. We talk about that a lot. I try to talk about it with lots and lots and lots of humility because we've got a long way to go. But it's important that we don't take our eye off what it is we are trying to do and how to get there. We have all sorts of pressures all the time - that voice on your shoulder, the frustration that crops up. We want to do what's best for the future. Philadelphia Inquirer

Q: Is this a tough sell to other people in the organization, like ticket sales people and other people who could be in jeopardy of losing jobs because there aren't fans in the stands? A: I talk to those people and we try to be really helpful and Scott O'Neil and I are close and talk a lot about the things happening with our team the things happening with our business folks and all of those matters. But we talk more about what really matters and what has lasting value and how to really get where we want to go. We talk about all the other things, too. But when you really weigh it up at the end of the day you have to figure out what weight to put on various things, and at the end of the day we keep asking ourselves the same question: 'What will give us our best chance to get where we want to go as fast as we can.'

"This time of year, there are way more [offers] leaked than real, and way more postured by one team or another than there's any legs to. We are involved in a lot of conversations. We are not involved in as many as has been reported," Hinkie said Tuesday before the Sixers' 92-71 victory over the Houston Rockets at the Amway Center practice court. Philadelphia Inquirer

Serbian point guard Vasilije Micic, whom the Sixers drafted 52d overall last week, will not participate in either of the summer leagues. The 6-5, 203-pounder will not play for the Sixers this season. Micic will stay overseas and play for Mega Vizura of the Serbian League for at least one more season. Philadelphia Inquirer

The Sixers have $30 million in cap space and have made it known they’d be willing to accept an undesirable expiring contract if a pawn is thrown in. That extra pawn likely would be Iman Shumpert — something the Knicks prefer not to do. New York Post

It seemed no matter who the opponent, regardless of the location, there was a familiar face - or rather, franchise - at just about every one of Dairis Bertans' games this past season overseas. That's why the Latvian playmaker said despite interest from a couple other NBA teams (Philadelphia and Toronto) to join their summer league teams, choosing the Boston Celtics was a no-brainer. "Probably the only team that was following me, I mean really following me, all season," Bertans told CSNNE.com. "They (Celtics) were at all my games. They knew how I was playing. And they invited me (to training camp). I didn't have to think about it." CSNNE.com

Nerlens Noel will play in Tuesday’s 7 p.m. Orlando Pro Summer League contest against the Houston Rockets. The 76ers 6-foot-11 center sat out Sunday’s 84-73 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder for precautionary reasons. The Sixers just don’t want to overwork Noel, who on Saturday played in his first game in 17 months following a knee injury in his lone season at Kentucky. Philadelphia Inquirer

Speaking on First Take, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said the Knicks and Sixers have had conversations about a deal that would send Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert to the Philadelphia. Although what the Sixers would send back isn't clear, it likely wouldn't be much more than a draft pick or non-guaranteed contract player, as the Knicks would do the deal to clear cap space.

Steve Kyler: Pierre Jackson update - after tearing his Achilles yesterday, he going to back to Philly to meet with their doctors. What's next is unclear. The 76ers are still very high on Pierre Jackson, and don't view the injury as a career ender, but are not ready to make decisions yet. Twitter @stevekylerNBA

Nerlens Noel has the day off. The 76ers center will not compete in Sunday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Orlando Pro Summer League, the Inquirer has learned. The 6-foot-11, 228-pounder has been working hard since the team started training on Monday. The Sixers want to be smart during this summer-league stretch. Philadelphia Inquirer

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.
