The story of the week was supposed to be rookies Arnett Moultrie and Maurice Harkless. But it was announced prior to the start of OPSL action that Moultrie wouldn’t see the floor because of a sprained ankle he suffered in pre-draft workouts and early in day two Harkless suffered a strained hip-flexor, sidelining him for the remainder of the week.
The Sixers were also without big man Nikola Vucevic for the week. As we all know, “Big Nik” performed well early in the season last year, but saw a decline in his minutes and his confidence as the season went on. So we were hoping that Nik would have a solid week and build some positive momentum for the 2012-13 season. Instead Vuc suffered a strained left Achilles in the first practice of the week and never saw the floor in O-town.
After the jump I wrap up the rest of the Sixers week in Orlando…
