The new (old) logo should become official tomorrow.

8

All signs point to the Sixers officially unveiling their new logo tomorrow. It's been a long time coming, but it looks like we're going back to the retro logo and retro uni's. I couldn't be more excited. I'd like to think that this was all made possible because of the petition our resident Italian (I'm italian too) Sixers blogger, Ricky from Sixers 4 Guidos started a while back. I want to give a big shout out to Ricky for getting the ball rolling, and all 131 people who signed the petition. (Signature 89 is the best :]) Just in time for the draft...

With the 17th pick in the NBA draft...

Head over to Ridiculous Upside to see who the Sixers (Me and Mike Bourn) selected with pick 17.

"League executives say Philadelphia 76ers forward Elton Brand and the four years and $65 million left on his contract are available" Can he attract interest and from whom? Any thoughts?

Hollinger ranks Lawson as the best collegiate prospect?

I'm trying to determine whether this is good news or bad news.

Young, Iguodala named to US national team

This isn't official, because USA Basketball has yet to make a formal annoncement, but sources say the 76ers' Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young are on a list of about 24 players to be invited to the U.S. National Team's mini-camp July 22-25 in Las Vegas.

Kapono ranked 6th least productive player, Willie G ranked 35th

I really hope Jordan knows how to use Kapono better thank he was utilized last season. As for Willie, well we knew that already. I also found number one intriguing. To think there were debates whther we should've drafted Thornton over Thaddeus.

Sammy D to Bobcats?

A rumor popped up this week that has Samuel Dalembert going to the Charlotte Bobcats for Nazr Mohammed and Vladimir Radmanovic, with the Sixers either getting a second-round pick in the NBA Draft or swapping first-round picks (17 for 12) with the Bobcats. -- PhillyBurbs This would be an amazing trade. Again, if you asked me, "Jordan, what trade would be the best possible trade of Samuel Dalembert and be realistic at the same time?" It'd be this one. Mohammed and Radmanovic both each have 6 million dollar contracts which expire in two years (just like Sam). The difference between them and Sam is, neither one of them would complain as much as Sam. Not to mention, Vladimir Radmanovic would give the Sixers another three-point threat. (38 percent for his career) Then you throw in a second rounder or move up five spots in the draft? I wouldn't have even looked twice at a rumor like this until the Jason Kapono trade. With Ed Stefanski, anything is possible!

For the fifth straight time, he has the Sixers taking Eric Maynor at 17.

Ivey opting out

I am a little surprised since I think he said at the end of the year that he was going to stay but he isn't going to be a huge loss so it doesn't matter I guess.
