Last 3 days could not have gone better in terms of #sixers chance of getting the OKC pick. Wonder if Sam Hinkie would raise that 30% chance.

Thomas Robinson's 4 starts earlier this year: 9 points, 8.8 rebounds in 22.6 minutes per night.

Alex Len

Let's go Terps!!! Great first half! #BeatWisconsin

Keith Pompey

Thomas Robinson will fly to Milwaukee Wednesday morning to join the #Sixers in time for that night's game against the #Bucks

Dan Gelston

76ers sign former Kansas Jayhawk Thomas Robinson.

Derek Bodner

Always going to have limitations defensively due to size, but if game slows down for him, he has tools to be contributor in league.

Derek Bodner

If there's one thing I think Thomas Robinson needs to improve upon to be a regular rotation player in NBA, it's his shot selection.

Derek Bodner

I think @Devin Kharpertian is missing key point. Not pointless to bring him if they like him but not RFA. Brown and coaching staff get first-hand look.

Bob Cooney

#Sixers claim 6-9 Thomas Robinson off waivers. Was fifth overall pick in 2012, but hasn't panned out in NBA. Could join team tomorrow.

Derek Bodner

For a player looking to prove himself, or resurrect career, minutes are a very attractive benefit.

Derek Bodner

Everybody talks about how nobody wants to play on #sixers, but bet Covington, Hollis Thompson, JaKarr Sampson and Jerami Grant like minutes.

#Sixers claim PF Thomas Robinson off waivers. They make room by waiving PG Tim Frazier. philly.com/philly/blogs/d…

Derek Bodner

sporcle quiz going to be so hard this year.

Derek Bodner

"the Sixers' initial plan is to keep Robinson and take an extended look at him, a league source told Yahoo Sports." per @Adrian Wojnarowski

Derek Bodner

I usually leave the irrational excitement for @Michael_Levin, but Thomas Robinson is a kid I hope succeeds.

Derek Bodner

The #sixers have waived Tim Frazier in order to make room for Thomas Robinson, who they have claimed off of waivers.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers claim Thomas Robinson off waivers and waive Tim Frazier.

Derek Bodner

Honestly, I hope they give Thomas Robinson some burn. Good kid who has had a lot of pressure on him off the court.

Derek Bodner

Summary: Thomas Robinson will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. Claiming team would keep bird rights.

Derek Bodner

Clarification: Since his 4th year option was not picked up, he is not eligible to be RFA. Condition that's unique to rookie scale contracts.

Derek Bodner

Robinson is still only 23, and is 3 years removed from being #5 pick in the draft. Rebounding has translated, but not offensive game.

Derek Bodner

Benefit of waiver claims: 100% of salary goes against floor calculation, but #sixers only pay prorated portion of it.

Derek Bodner

I have to check the numbers, but I think the waiver claim would put the #sixers above the salary cap floor.

Derek Bodner

If #sixers pick up Robinson, will be on hook for remainder of his ~$3.7m contract. His option for next season was not picked up by Portland.

Don’t go, @parksandrecnbc. There’s still time to change your mind.

Derek Bodner

#sixers fans should be listening to @ShanderShow and @HARRYMAYES975 on @975TheFanatic. And not *just* because Eytan dropped DraftExpress ref

So much of discussion around #sixers is centered around confirmation bias, on both ends, myself included. Can't wait until this stage over.

Tom Moore

Thanks, Jon. RT @jonjohnsonwip: @Tom Moore you said it perfectly Tom. My man.

Derek Bodner

"Hinkie was using huge words ... such as trope". It's 5 characters.

Derek Bodner

Make no mistake, though, if #sixers trade Joel Embiid for anybody in this draft, I will criticize the move. Just don't think they will.

Derek Bodner

(Or the interpretation of what they were willing to move Embiid for)

Derek Bodner

Basically, I think the report that Hinkie listened is likely accurate. I think the interpretation that they were looking to move Embiid not.

Derek Bodner

He's a sure thing. I like certainty. RT @SpikeEskin: only guy I'd trade Embiid for straight up is Doug McDermott.

Derek Bodner

I was not surprised when told they would entertain trading MCW. Would not be surprised if same happend with Noel. Would be stunned w/Embiid.

Derek Bodner

"Hey, we have a top 3 pick, and we think Embiid is more valuable than Towns. Would you trade him?" <-- What's downside to getting that info?

Derek Bodner

Odds I give of Hinkie fielding a call about a team interested in Embiid: Pretty high. He'll listen, if for no other reason than collect info

Keith Pompey

Derek Bodner

Odds I give of any reporter, anywhere, for any publication, knowing Sam Hinkie's willingness to trade Joel Embiid: 0%.

Derek Bodner

Exactly RT @Hoop_76: Like .. it's a problem if a GM doesn't show a "willingness" to talk about something.

If Sam Hinkie would trade Joel Embiid for any pick in this draft, I would be a loud opponent of that move. Related: I don't think Sam would.

Derek Bodner

Besides fielding a call always making sense, Hinkie will look at fielding a call as an opportunity to gather information about an opponent.

Derek Bodner

For those scoreboard watching: Bkn up 5 over Den (bad), Minny losing to Hou (bad), Milwaukee losing to Chicago (good)

Derek Bodner

That makes two consecutive games where the #sixers have made 13 three's in a game. Only made 13+ once in previous 55 games.

Derek Bodner

#sixers lose 119-108. Hollis Thompson with 22, Noel with 18 pts, 7 reb, 4 blocks, Covington with 16. #sixers go 13-30 from 3.

Derek Bodner

"OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE HIM HE PASSED THE BALL. Get him more minutes."

The 3rd string point guard is the NBA's equivalent to the backup quarterback.

Noel 8-for-10 from foul line.

Luol Deng is 11-for-14 from the floor and has 29 points with over 9 minutes to go. Heat has upped lead to 17

Bob Cooney

Heat now 10-for-17 from three, many of them the wide-open variety.

#Sixers getting beat on boards by 35-23.

Derek Bodner

#sixers are shooting 48.5% from the field, 45% from 3, and have only 8 TO's through 3 quarters, but are down 12. efense.

Bob Cooney

Heat won that quarter by 30-19. They also shot 12-for-23 while #Sixers shot 8-for-20

Keith Pompey

#Heat up 91-79 after three quarters.

Keith Pompey

The #Sixers offense is MUCH improved. They just can't make any stops right about. #Heat up 86-75 with 1:15 left in third

Derek Bodner

Ish Smith killed the rim on a driving dunk, then killed the backboard on an attempted 3 on the next trip down the floor.

Derek Bodner

That was some serious Ish.

Keith Pompey

Smith with a POWERFUL dunk. Sixers down 81-75

Keith Pompey

#Heat up 81-73 with 2:23 left in third

Bob Cooney

Dwayne Wade is taking over. He has 16 now as Heat leads 74-71 with 4:45 to go in third

Keith Pompey

Not any longer, Wade scores two quick baskets to make it 74-71 #Heat. Now, he's about to go to the foul line with 4:45 left in 3d after TO

Keith Pompey

What? Sims with a dunk. ... Sixers lead 71-70

Keith Pompey

I can see why Brown was upset. His squad isn't getting any calls. Canaan was knocked to floor and it was like he wasn't even in the game

Derek Bodner

Now just imagine this being Joel Embiid instead of Henry Sims posting up... http://t.co/FnAK0bGklO

Keith Pompey

Someone needs to get the PA announcer a #Sixers roster. He called Canaan Nick Cannon earlier. SMH

Keith Pompey

Wade misses the tech foul shot

Bob Cooney

Brown gets a T, but wade doesn't convert

Keith Pompey

Brown called for a Tech with 8:45 left in third.
