Day’Ron Sharpe said Andre Drummond is already giving him tips on fouls and rebounds. – 10:42 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Final: Nets fall to the Heat 115-111. The losing streak is 11. Brooklyn played well enough to battle back, but had a few issues down the stretch. Irving with 29, Thomas with 22, Sharpe with a double-double. Kings come to town on Monday. Enter Seth Curry and Andre Drummond. – 10:32 PM

“I was like, alright cool” – Paul Reed when he found out he was getting an opportunity to step up with Drummond out #Sixers10:13 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
The only reason the Sixers accepted the Harden trade is because they knew BBall Paul was ready to fill in for Drummond. – 9:50 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets are getting outrebounded 14-8 and shooting just 2-for-10 from 3. They could use Seth Curry and Andre Drummond tonight. Alas… – 8:33 PM

Per Nets vs. Heat tonight:
Seth Curry (trade pending) – OUT

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Seth Curry (trade pending) and Andre Drummond (trade pending) are both out tonight for the #Nets vs the #Heat. #NBA6:10 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Nets ruled out Seth Curry and Andre Drummond for tonight’s game because the trade is still pending. So Nets without Durant, Simmons, Curry and Drummond. – 6:10 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets rule Seth Curry and Andre Drummond out tonight against Miami. Trade still pending apparently. – 6:06 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Mitchell Robinson has grabbed at least 4 offensive rebounds in each of his nine games.
That’s the longest such streak in the NBA in two years (Andre Drummond in January of 2020) – 4:36 PM

Steve Nash expects Seth Curry and Andre Drummond to be out tonight against Miami but adds there’s an outside chance they play. – 12:31 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Nash said there’s still an “outside chance” that all the paperwork and exams will be completed so that Curry and Drummond can play tonight vs. Heat — but he does not sound optimistic. Feels like their debut will be Monday against the Kings in Brooklyn. – 11:57 AM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Andre Drummond on the #Nets: “We have a great roster. I think when everybody’s healthy and and able to play all together, I think we’re very scary down the stretch in the playoffs. I think this team is a championship team. Absolutely.” #NBA11:49 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Andre Drummond said he spoke to Ben Simmons on Friday. Nets seem very excited about how he’s feeling and how he’ll fit in Brooklyn. Drummond still isn’t sure when Simmons will play, but he’s confident he’ll be ready when he does. “Whenever he’s ready, we’ll take him back.” – 11:47 AM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Andre Drummond said he still has a lot of relatives in the area. He was born in Mount Vernon but grew up in Connecticut. Said he’ll have a lot of ticket requests for home games. – 11:47 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Seth Curry still isn’t sure if he’ll be able to play tonight given that all the physicals in the deal haven’t been completed yet. He felt over the last week a deal might happen — and joked that his wife, Callie, Doc Rivers’ daughter, wasn’t exactly thrilled with the deal. – 11:40 AM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Asked Seth Curry how his wife Callie – Doc Rivers’ daughter – took the news of the trade to the #Nets: “She grew up around the league, so she knows this stuff can change any minute and we’re looking forward to this and to being a part of this team.” #NBA #sixers #76ers11:40 AM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Seth Curry met with the media for the first time since the trade. Said he was expecting to get dealt if a deal went down despite being Doc Rivers’ son-in-law. Isn’t sure if he will play tonight because the physicals still need to clear. – 11:38 AM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nets likely starters: Kyrie Irving , Seth Curry, Ben Simmons, Kevin Durant, Andre Drummond
Second unit: Patty Mills, Cam Thomas, Kessler Edwards/Joe Harris, James Johnson, LaMarcus Aldridge
Reserves: Blake Griffin, Nic Claxton, Bruce Brown, Day’Ron Sharpe, Jevon Carter, DDJ – 10:37 AM

BBall Paul will get the first backup center minutes in the Post-Drummond era.
Doc did say before the game that the Sixers will be active on the buyout market looking at backup center. – 7:34 PM

*Seth Curry & Andre Drummond are questionable for game at MIA, Nets say; Ben Simmons is out, listed as not w/team in MIA. Simmons took physical w/BKN in NY today. *Deleted previous tweet (pic below) which was interpreted by some as Simmons being intentionally away from Nets (1/2) pic.twitter.com/QUjEFnhQYC7:15 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers naturally updated their video intro, removing all clips of Simmons (there were a couple if you looked closely!), Curry and Drummond and changing the song (Foo Fighters’ Everlong). They’ll surely do it again once Harden plays a couple games in a Philly uniform. – 7:10 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Nets say Nic Claxton (left hamstring tightness) remains out vs. Heat on Saturday. Seth Curry and Andre Drummond are both questionable. Nash said on Thursday he wasn’t sure if either player would be ready to play yet after the deal was completed. – 5:26 PM

Blake Griffin on Andre Drummond: “You look up at the end of the first quarter and he’s got 12 and 10.” – 10:54 PM
Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto
Blake Griffin said he thinks the Nets “got better” after trading James Harden for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond. “Ben was done there. You can see that from not playing. I think we definitely got what we wanted, guys that want to be here and guys that want to play.” pic.twitter.com/IoaXP50VxI10:50 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Blake Griffin on the trade: “I think we got better.” Calls Drummond a monster down low, Curry gives them more shooting and Simmons is a great talent. Thinks the Nets have the environment to help him succeed. – 10:41 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
Steve Nash says Seth Curry and Andre Drummond may join the team soon and Ben Simmons has more physical ramp up ahead of him. – 10:24 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash said Seth Curry and Andre Drummond will likely join the team in Miami, but might not play. Said he’s more unsure of Simmons, who has a longer ramp-up than the other two. – 10:22 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Marks on Simmons, Curry & Drummond: “Ben is an All-NBA and All-Defensive player with elite playmaking abilities, while Seth has proven to consistently be one of the league’s best 3-point shooters and Andre has been one of the league’s top rebounders for the last decade.” #Nets9:37 PM
