Philadelphia 76ers Rumors
Mike Mazzeo: Another reserve big that could perhaps interest the #Nets is Thomas Robinson. The #Nets loved Robinson when he was drafted out of Kansas. Thought they claimed him off waivers before Philly came in and claimed.
Marc J. Spears: Guard Pierre Jackson, returning from torn Achilles, will play for Sixers’ summer league team, source said, but uncertain if Vegas & Orlando.
On Monday morning, Sixers head coach Brett Brown spoke with Malik Rose and Jared Greenberg of SiriusXM NBA Radio about the talented young big man, among other topics. “To think that in three drafts you got Nerlens [Noel], and Joel [Embiid], and Jah (Jahlil Okafor), it’s quite an amazing accomplishment when you look at the quality of those bigs,” he said. “We always went into [the draft] saying, ‘Whoever the best player is, that’s who you want.’ You really can’t get tricked on trying to draft for position, I feel. And if Nerlens hadn’t gotten injured, they say [he goes] #1, if Joel hadn’t gotten injured, they say #1, and Jahlil, all year, was #1, so the [outlook] of the 2015-16 season is quite positive.”
