Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links.
• After three-and-a-half years at Liberty Ballers, Derek Bodner has started up his own site and will be writing there from now on. The site is Broad Street Hoops and for site updates you can follow @BroadStreetHoop on Twitter. If you want to follow Derek himself, his Twitter handle is @DerekBodnerNBA
• While all of us at Liberty Ballers wish Derek all the best (and you can do that by checking out Broad Street Hoop!), the show must go on and on it will go. Liberty Ballers is proud to announce Jake Fischer from SLAM Magazine, Huffington Post, and Mid-Major Madness will be joining the LB squad.
• Congratulations go out to new newlywed Michael Baumann for his marriage last weekend!
• Missing you, weeks where people do not temporarily or permanently abandon us

Jazz expected to sign Justin Holiday - Philly.com
Here's hoping he finds away to get himself to New Orleans and Justin can reunite with Jrue again. Those final few games last season where Justin and Jrue played together represented the highlight of the season. This blurb has been a commentary on last season.
REMINDER - RULES OF THE THREAD: As long as you keep it clean (no cursing and please remember to cover your mouth when you sneeze during threading) and respectful, it's fair game. It's your thread - use it as you see fit.
Now, discuss! Happy Friday!
