Serbian point guard Vasilije Micic, whom the Sixers drafted 52d overall last week, will not participate in either of the summer leagues. The 6-5, 203-pounder will not play for the Sixers this season. Micic will stay overseas and play for Mega Vizura of the Serbian League for at least one more season. Philadelphia Inquirer

The Sixers have $30 million in cap space and have made it known they’d be willing to accept an undesirable expiring contract if a pawn is thrown in. That extra pawn likely would be Iman Shumpert — something the Knicks prefer not to do. New York Post

It seemed no matter who the opponent, regardless of the location, there was a familiar face - or rather, franchise - at just about every one of Dairis Bertans' games this past season overseas. That's why the Latvian playmaker said despite interest from a couple other NBA teams (Philadelphia and Toronto) to join their summer league teams, choosing the Boston Celtics was a no-brainer. "Probably the only team that was following me, I mean really following me, all season," Bertans told CSNNE.com. "They (Celtics) were at all my games. They knew how I was playing. And they invited me (to training camp). I didn't have to think about it." CSNNE.com

Nerlens Noel will play in Tuesday’s 7 p.m. Orlando Pro Summer League contest against the Houston Rockets. The 76ers 6-foot-11 center sat out Sunday’s 84-73 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder for precautionary reasons. The Sixers just don’t want to overwork Noel, who on Saturday played in his first game in 17 months following a knee injury in his lone season at Kentucky. Philadelphia Inquirer

Speaking on First Take, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said the Knicks and Sixers have had conversations about a deal that would send Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert to the Philadelphia. Although what the Sixers would send back isn't clear, it likely wouldn't be much more than a draft pick or non-guaranteed contract player, as the Knicks would do the deal to clear cap space.

Steve Kyler: Pierre Jackson update - after tearing his Achilles yesterday, he going to back to Philly to meet with their doctors. What's next is unclear. The 76ers are still very high on Pierre Jackson, and don't view the injury as a career ender, but are not ready to make decisions yet. Twitter @stevekylerNBA

Nerlens Noel has the day off. The 76ers center will not compete in Sunday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Orlando Pro Summer League, the Inquirer has learned. The 6-foot-11, 228-pounder has been working hard since the team started training on Monday. The Sixers want to be smart during this summer-league stretch. Philadelphia Inquirer

Noel had game highs of 19 points and four steals to go with three assists and a blocked shot in an 83-77 setback to the Magic on Saturday at the Orlando Pro Summer League. The 6-foot-11, 228-pounder was deadly from the foul line, making 7 of 7. He also scored on an array of dunks, floaters, and hook bank shots. His only downside was finishing with just two rebounds in 26 minutes, 17 seconds. Philadelphia Inquirer

THE TOP 50 PLAYERS IN SIXERS HISTORY
