UPDATE [10:38 AM]: According to Marc Spears, the Sixers are, or could be, interested in the following free agents: Ersan Ilyasova, Chauncey Billups, and Omer Asik.

Lou Williams and Spencer Hawes

  • Free agency officially began last night and the first thing the Sixers did was speak with Lou Williams and Spencer Hawes. Before anyone climbs out their window, onto a ledge, these talks are primarily seen as "due diligence", as most teams prioritize their own free agents, before moving on to outsiders.
  • According to John Mitchell, "four of five teams" are ready to make Lou an offer.

Jamal Crawford

  • According to Alex Kennedy, of Hoops World, the Sixers were one of the many teams who contacted Jamal Crawford Saturday night. Y'all know how I feel about Crawford joining the Sixers (hint: click here), as you probably feel the same.

Ian Mahinmi

  • Mahinmi is the one free agent I wouldn't mind the Sixers casually pursuing. Apparently seven teams met with him, but it's unclear who they were.
