Those of us who have followed the 76ers for a while as devoted fans or professional sport writers understand the facts of what Sam Hinkie is trying to accomplish in the 2013-14 season.
We appreciate the way he traded established players for a stock pile draft picks. We are aware that under watchful eye of head coach Brett Brown, Hinkie is trying to develop young players. And perhaps most importantly, we recognize that Hinkie is losing a great deal of games this season for ping pong balls at the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery.
But one element of Hinkie’s rebuilding project that has been intriguing and at times mysterious, is the revolving door of reserve players he has signed only to get rid of them after a few weeks or months at most.
