Says biggest need is perimeter players and shooting....more natural 2s, not 3s like Covington and Thompson filling in there

Sam Hinkie will NOT give timetable on when #sixers have a chance to contend for a championship. His plan obviously is a plan w/o a timetable

Says they make thorough decisions on who the 14th/15th players on the roster will be, whether it's a vet presence or no-names like Daniel Orton

Lol he so obviously wanted Russell

On where they had Jah ranked and being disappointed about not getting Russell: "Never let your guard down", even when celebrating. Says you never know, they might be talking to guys like Wiggins, Parker, Russell, down the road

I took at as they are just being super cautious. Who knows though.

Asked if this season is about experimenting :-D

Says they sorta have an idea of how these guys can play together and they'll do lots of experimenting throughout the summer and preseason to see how it works out

Honestly, I think they're worried about the fact that Embiid has no soreness. He has no symptoms but he's still not healing? It has them totally stumped

I would love to see Okafor take it to the hoop against Noel in practice. I would also love to see Noel take it to Okafor in practice, but for different reasons.

Says as of 9am, Embiid won't play in Summer League. Says he's symptom-free, which is why it's "confusing". Says he feels great..."Can't believe how great I feel...hard to believe something might be wrong." Surgery not ruled out
