McDaniels’ agent, Mark Bartelstein, wouldn't accept the 76ers’ structure of two guaranteed contract seasons that included two non-guaranteed seasons in years three and four of the deal. The 76ers have had success using these contracts to control young players’ service and flipping the non-guaranteed seasons into valuable trade chips. Yahoo! Sports

McDaniels was not present Tuesday for the opening day of training camp at Richard Stockton College. As of Tuesday afternoon, he had yet to sign his contract. The Sixers expect him to sign it in the near future. "It's just a situation that comes up, and [general manager] Sam [Hinkie] is handling it," coach Brett Brown said. "I trust Sam will handle it the way we need to as a club. Philadelphia Inquirer

The Sixers waived Pierre Jackson, two months after signing the injured point guard to a partially guaranteed deal. Philadelphia Inquirer

While the call was to discuss the trade, many topics were brought up to Hinkie: * On whether Embiid may play this season: "I don't know at this point. Right now, he's in Philly and visiting with a variety of our medical professionals and going through tests. He'll get a good baseline and then we'll put together a rehab plan. He's still in a boot. He was shooting threes on one leg in our gym [Monday]. I don't know how it will play out. We'll take an approach without knowing where the finish line is. We want to know how we can be sure to put him in a position to have a long NBA career. However long [rehab] takes will be however long it takes. In my experience with this injury, a very reasonable approach that our medical professionals take is to put these hurdles in place for them to rise above and then measure the symptoms and then let's see what happens in the days after. Is there tightness or soreness or swelling? Does the MRI or X-ray show something different? When we set that road map, no one knows [how long it will take]." Philadelphia Inquirer

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.
