Celtics tickets now on sale. Better got on it. That March 16 game against the 76ers is probably going to sell out quick.

Chris Sheridan

Joe Embiid looked great playing ball. Too bad it was not with a basketball. Great #Sixers column by @Hoopman09 sheridanhoops.com/2014/08/27/mar…

Tommy Beer

The 76ers highest paid player is Jason Richardson ($6.6 million)… Four of the players in the Nets starting five make over $12 million

Tommy Beer

As of today, the 76ers total guaranteed salary for next season stands at $22.4 million… Amar’e & Melo both make more than that individually

Thunder trade Hasheem Thabeet to 76ers to help avoid luxury tax, Sixers expected to waive former No. 2 pick cbsprt.co/1q35Aj9

Joel Embiid

First thing when I get 2k, I put the whole SIXERS squad on 99

Kevin Pelton

As for the Thunder-Sixers deal, give both sides a C+. OKC's options with trade exception limited since it's so small. PHI gets cash.

Tom Moore

Thabeet's $1.25M contract doesn't become guaranteed until early Sept. #Sixers essentially get cash for nothing (won't give up 2nd-rounder)

Eric Pincus

Thunder dealt Hasheem Thabeet officially to Sixers for cash, gettting a trade x for $1.25 mil -- OKC also gets protected 2nd @Marc Stein

John Gonzalez

For curious: Sixers rented cap space to OKC. Will waive Thabeet before end of month. Sixers basically did OKC quick favor for $ #Sixerstalk

John Gonzalez

Sixers sent top 55 protected pick in 2015 draft to OKC in that deal. Obviously never paying that off. #Sixerstalk

Kurt Helin

Thunder trade Hasheem Thabeet to 76ers dlvr.it/6kVwB0

Sean Highkin

Same. Won't even be offended if I get waived. RT @uuords: Just tweeting to let the Sixers know I'm available for the veteran's minimum.

Gary Lee

Hasheem Thabeet will be traded and waived by the 76ers. I’m not quite sure who the better player is between him and Robert Sacre.

Emiliano Carchia

Thunder trade Hasheem Thabeet to the Sixers (76ers will waive him right after) sportando.com/en/usa/nba/132…

Mike Prada

The Thabeet trade means less money for the rest of the 76ers players if Philly stays under the salary floor. I’d be annoyed if I were them.

Sean Highkin

Not sure why the Sixers are waiving Thabeet. Seems like a perfect fit with what they're trying to do.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Oklahoma se saca de encima a Hasheem Thabeet: canjeado a Philadelphia x 1.250.000 trade exception. Los 76ers dejarán libre al pivote...

Royce Young

The Thunder are just getting a $1.2 million traded player exception in the deal, I'm told. Sixers are under the cap.

Marc Stein

Thabeet, I'm told, is likely to be waived immediately by Sixers after completion of trade

Marc Stein

Thunder, I'm told, will send cash considerations to Sixers so Philly will absorb Thabeet's contract. OKC thus creates $1.25 million TPE

Tom Moore

#NBA source: #Sixers expected to hold training camp at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey near AC. Starting late Sept. (9/29?). #76ers
