The 2016 NBA trade deadline has come and gone quietly for the 76ers. Even after receiving inquiries from teams such as the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, the front office team of Colangelo and Hinkie thankfully chose not to move any of the franchise’s valuable “assets”. Instead Sam and Jerry settled for a very Hinkie-ish move in trading for veteran Joel Anthony and a 2nd round pick in 2017. It’s a stone cold lock that Anthony will be waived this week.
With a nearly irrelevant trade deadline now behind us it’s time to take a look at the “official” second half of the 2015-16 NBA season. The Sixers have 29 games remaining in the third year of “the process” and after the jump I will identify five items I will be watching for with this team as we count down to the 2016 Draft Lottery.
