Casual Friday Sixers Links: It's silly season time and by silly season we mean Dion Waiters trade rumors season

We'll bring the links, you bring the discussion. Casual Friday open thread discussion fun for everyone! In this week's edition of Casual Friday, we ignore pointless Dion Waiters trade rumors in favor of other commentary.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links!

Housekeeping:

Dion Waiters fits in with Hinkie's vision as much as I fit in at center on an NBA team. I'm 6' tall only if you're generous.

• Many people have asked many blog leaders over the years if they could change their SB Nation username because there was no manual way to do it yourself. Now you can manually change your username one time without having to ask any higher-up to do it for you. Click on this Blog Huddle link for specific instructions on how to change your username.

• Missing you, Summer League.
