The 76ers' rebuilding approach is one of the most aggressive and controversial in professional sports -- and Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak doesn't appear to be much of a fan. "I still don't understand what they're doing," Kupchak said Thursday at the Lakers' practice facility, where the team conducted exit interviews after its 2014-15 season ended the day before.

Coach Brett Brown was not quite on board with the deal that sent away Carter-Williams, and that’s led to rumors of tension between Brown and general manager Sam Hinkie. Sources around the league, though, say such tension has been minimal, and that though Brown would like to start winning sooner rather than later, he understands Hinkie’s focus on the long term. Brown refused to take the job in 2013 without a four-year contract to ensure security as the losses piled up, and it appears he is not going anywhere for now. Sporting News

Until then, expect the Brett Brown-led Sixers to play hard. It's the only way they know how. "I love the direction that we're heading in," Noel said. "I love what Sam Hinkie is doing with our team: building through the draft, getting young guys and being very particular about the pieces that he brings into this organization. "I think this is going to be a very solid team in the next few years and we're just going to continue to grow together." ESPN.com

On Feb. 19, Hinkie made three deals that produced point guard Isaiah Canaan, big man JaVale McGee, a pair of protected first-round selections and a second-rounder. Reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams and rookie K.J. McDaniels went to the Bucks and Rockets, respectively. MCW's departure meant Hollis Thompson is the only Sixer left who played during the first half of the 2013-14 season. He has accumulated 17 second-round picks over the next six drafts and as many as five first-rounders in the next two. All of these moves, while designed to land a star or (ideally) stars, are delaying the rebuilding process. The Intelligencer
