Philadelphia 76ers Rumors
The Philadelphia 76ers today announced audition details for the 2017-18 season Sixers Dancers and Sixers Dunk Squad, presented by Dunkin’ Donuts. Both entertainment teams are an integral part of the team’s game night experience and represent the Sixers organization at community and sponsorship events throughout the year.
Andre Iguodala has become the foremost target in an attempt weaken the Golden State Warriors’ chokehold on the NBA, league sources have told ESPN. The Minnesota Timberwolves, San Antonio Spurs, LA Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, Orlando Magic, Brooklyn Nets and Utah Jazz are among the teams interested in the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, sources tell ESPN. It is not yet known if Iguodala will take meetings.
Philadelphia, where Iguodala spent his first eight seasons in the league, is in the midst of a rousing youth movement centered on development, fresh culture and identity along with a new organizational objective: winning. They covet veteran leadership and someone who is still productive on the court, which explains why the team is captivated by a potential reunion with Iguodala, sources say.
Anthony, according to the same source, was toying with the idea of orchestrating a move to either Philadelphia or Washington, which would keep him close to New York. However, Anthony’s mindset now is to stay in New York and play for the Knicks… even though Jackson doesn’t want him.
Over 10 turbulent but transcendent seasons in Philadelphia, Iverson was an MVP, a four-time scoring champion and a seven-time all-NBA selection, but more significant, he was a streetwise icon before brand managers cheapened the term. “He represented what black kids were all about, and he resonated with every inner-city kid in the world who had a struggle,” LeBron James says. “Michael Jordan inspired me, and I looked up to him, but he was out of this world. A.I. was really the god.”
