Philadelphia 76ers Rumors
Mark Medina: Not surprising: De’Aaron Fox plans to work out for Lakers and Sixers. Lakers’ workout likely to happen mid-June (week of 11-17)

Shane Heal and his former basketball mentor, Brett Brown, are locked in a battle on a court of a different kind with the Australian sporting great accused of defrauding the NBA coach of $750,000. Their one-time friendship in a 20-year association and financial dealings came under the spotlight in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday with Heal facing three fraud charges. The four-time Olympian and ex-NBL star was charged last year following an ASIC investigation relating to alleged misconduct in 2008, 2009 and 2010. He is accused of defrauding current Philadelphia 76ers NBA coach Brown of $750,000 when he was as sole director of three companies.
