It did though. They needed to get out of the middle of the NBA even if Bynum never plays for the Sixers they freed up a lot of cap room to make a signing and they are going to be in the lottery to get a player that can actually help the team.

News you don't care about, but I will post.

Sixers plan on resigning Bynum.
Turner is probably dealt, I am hoping for Tyreke Evans in return.
Iverson still trying to play, but if he doesn't he says he is happy in life.
Sixers should retire his number.
Collins still may not be fired, if he is fired they may offer him a management position with the Sixers. I would like Aaron McKie to replace him as coach.
Would like the Sixers to draft a PF, hopefully Noels falls to them by some miracle.

This sucks but I cant blame him.

Doug Collins tells Sixers he doesn't want to return as coach next season
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--doug-collins-tells-sixers-he-doesn-t-want-to-return-as-coach-021305354.html
Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins has informed ownership that he will resign at season's end, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Doug Collins could still stay with the Sixers in a different role. (USA Today Sports)Collins, 62, has one year left on a four-year deal, but has told management he won't return in that job. Collins' possible return to the franchise in another role – perhaps in the front office – hasn't been ruled out, a source said.

Ownership wanted him to return for the final season of a contract that would've paid him $4.5 million, one source said, but Collins informed owner Josh Harris of his decision to leave in recent days.

A 76ers spokesman couldn't be reached for comment on Sunday night.

The Sixers are 33-47 and in ninth place in the East.

[Also: Lakers hope Kobe Bryant can return for start of 2013-14 season]

After reaching the Eastern Conference semifinals a year ago – and trading for All-Star center Andrew Bynum over the summer – the Sixers had hopes of challenging the conference elite this season. Yet the season derailed when recurring knee problems cost Bynum the entire season, ultimately leaving the Sixers with nothing to show for trading Andre Igoudala and promising young players, Nik Vucevic and Moe Harkless.

With Collins leaving and organization president Rod Thorn likely to move into a consultant's role at season's end, the Sixers organization will be in flux. General manager Tony DiLeo was promoted into his job a year ago, but it's unclear if ownership will stay with him or seek to hire an ultimate decision-maker over him.

[Also: With Kobe out, Dwight Howard becomes the man for the Lakers]

Philadelphia was the fourth stop of Collins' NBA coaching career that included Chicago, Detroit and Washington. Collins' son Chris was recently hired as the head coach at Northwestern University.

Collins will stay on as an adviser or some shit. Some names being thrown around for coaches are Jay Wright, Fran Dunphy and Aaron McKie. I wouldn't mind McKie or Wright I have liked Jay Wright for a while, but I never thought he would consider leaving college.

Nope, apparently NO is getting the 2014 1st too and that draft is supposed to be stacked.

Sixers giving up the pick, but it's 1-3 protected so they won't miss out on a sure fire all star

Hmm, the guy on Twitter is saying it's going to NO.

Andy Katz ‏@ESPNAndyKatz

Sorry about that last tweet. Had it backwards. NO gets 2014 pick from Sixers protected 1-3.


I'm not a Sixers fan, but feel sorry for people that are, that team is going to be terrible next year and then they give up their 1st unless they can tank their way into the top-3.

Haha, the guys on ESPN have no idea which way it is.

If the Sixers get the pick, I can see it, but if NO is getting the pick, really, really brutal.

EDIT: Woj is saying the Sixers get the pick, so I guess that's pretty decent. Holmgren can reclaim his title as 2nd worst GM in town (nobody beats RAJ).

It's Holiday+1st for Noel. The 1st is protected it makes sense because Philly can spend on a max contract now

I'm pretty sure Wojnarowski is the most reliable NBA guy, so I'd go by whatever he says. Honestly, the Sixers getting the 1st would make much more sense otherwise it's just a total heist.

I expect them to sit on it for a year and pick up another young piece since the first is protected.

Noel's has unlimited potential in a league that is very weak at the center position. I think the trade pays off in the long run

I can't see how they defend the logic otherwise. Trading away Jrue to totally rebuild makes sense, but then giving away the 1st rounder you use to rebuild with defeats the entire purpose.

Gonna take a couple years for all that to come together, for sure. Cap space is nice, but I don't think that's why they did this at all.

Jrue will be possibly their best player (at least their best player with two eyebrows), so not great. Pick should be top 15, at least.

Yeah, the guys that were saying that the Sixers sent the 1st to NO are now correcting themselves and saying the Sixers are getting it. Still, just as well that ST renewals already happened, that team is going to be brutal next year.

After the past ten years, I think people will realize we need to suck for a while. Could be kinda exciting to see Noel and MCW out there with Turner and Thad.

I thought Turner was virtually a bust at this point? I agree that it's a good deal though, you aren't really going anywhere if Holiday is your best player and they got a guy like some potential and maybe there's a chance that pick next year could be in the 4-10 range right?

Well, he's shown he's nothing much playing off the ball. Maybe if he's bringing the ball up the floor he's something better. Or at least good enough to get traded for something decent. He can put up decent assist and rebound numbers, so a few more points might be enough to trick a bad team into giving something up for him

The picked 11th overall and selected Michael Carter-Williams a 6'6 PG.

They traded Jrue Holiday and received Noel who has unlimited potential and the Pelicans 1st round pick that is 1-5 pick protected.

Don't forget about Moultrie guys. He was projected to go pretty high originally last year, but fell because of off the court issues. He has a high ceiling and he and Noel's could become a dynamic frontcourt duo if they reach their potential.

Sixers should have a great shot at having the worst record in the league. The Bobcats signed Al Jefferson and the Pelicans just signed Tyreke Evans... looks like it will come down to the Kings and Sixers, until the lottery is fixed for the Lakers

Sixers acquired Royce White who was drafted in the first round last year. They gave up a conditional pick, White never played for the Rockets last year due to some stupid shit. He has talent and he seems like he is a headcase...low risk high reward IMO as long as that pick isn't a first

Depends on viewpoint. "Redskins" could fall in here. I also find "Houston Dynamo" in the MLS laughable since it was clearly americans who don't have a clue about football coming up with that team name. "Chicago Fire" is also a really odd team name that would probably not fly 100 years ago. Then it would be the equivalent of "Boston Bombers".
