"That's my brother," Noel said when asked whether there was any bad blood between him and Carter-Williams. "Obviously, anybody could get more touches. I thought the ball was stagnant. If the ball is moving and everybody gets touches, not even really shots, just touches [it's better]. You have to feel like you're in the game and you're able to contribute on that side of the floor, whether it's passing or just getting shots." Philadelphia Inquirer

Nerlens Noel believes the ball should move when the 76ers are on offense. “There should be a minimum five passes in a possession,” said Noel after Tuesday's two-hour practice. “There's not rhythm when (the ball) sticks. If a guy's open 10 out of 10 times, you've got to give it to him 10 out of 10 times.” The Intelligencer

Chad Ford: I've heard a lot of rumblings from GMs that Carter-Williams is available. There are some in ownership and in the front office, though not all, that don't see him as a long-term piece of the puzzle. There was a lot of chatter that direction before the draft and in the past few weeks I know several teams have had exploratory discussions with the Sixers. I think the challenge right now is that the Sixers will want a lot in return and MCW's play, to date this season, hasn't warranted multiple first round picks for him. That makes him tough to deal.

Q: MCW. Some say it wouldn't be fair to judge considering his supporting cast, but he doesn't look good. In fact he looks awful. MCW doesn't seem like the type of player an analytic driven FO would consider long term. Will Hinkie try again to deal MCW?

Michael Carter-Williams scored 20 points, grabbed eight rebounds and handed out 15 assists in the 76ers' overtime win over the Pistons. MCW has scored at least 16 points, hauled in at least seven rebounds and handed out seven or more assists in each of his last five games. Only one other player in the history of the 76ers/Nats had a streak like that. Wilt Chamberlain had three streaks like that in a 76ers uniform, with a career long of 14 consecutive games in 1967-68.

After Monday’s loss to the Spurs the Sixers sit at 0-17 to start the season; one game away from tying the NBA’s all-time record for worst start to a season, two away from breaking it. While the Sixers flirted with the history books last season by embarking on the record-tying 26-game winless streak, they were ultimately happy to avoid the distinction of longest losing streak. “It’s not something I wanted to be part of,” Michael Carter-Williams said at the time, “so it’s great we got that win.” Philadelphia Inquirer

“I actually like what they are doing,” Barkley said recently. ”They have got a bright future. They got the Rookie of the Year (Michael Carter-Williams), they got (Nerlens) Noel back, I think he is going to be a good player. I am not playing (Joel) Embiid this year, I am not playing him. I am going to get another lottery pick next year, and I got four studs going forward — I’ve got a point guard, I’ve got a power forward, I’ve got a legit center. They’re hoping, in three or four years, they can be what Oklahoma City is now.” Sporting News
