The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers Podcast

First this week, it was pretty much confirmed that LeBron James is coming to the Sixers. Right? But then, after requesting a trade, it became pretty obvious that Kyrie Irving is coming to the Sixers. Well we can't have both, right? We discuss both situations, as well as dig in to a deep Twitter mailbag.

The 16-week Summer League schedule has finally ended, and we're ready to talk about the highs and lows. Most of these guys will never wear a Sixers uniform again, but some will, so we get into it.

We also discuss the new NBA rules regarding timeouts, the Sixers paid-waiting list for tickets, Joel Embiid's visit to the MLB Home Run Derby, potential chemistry issues with the Sixers, whether Fly The Process will go to London, brag about the other guys in the NBA Draft we were right about, and finally, a really weird announcement.

Thanks for the kind words about last week's show (for those who gave us kind words).

You can spare us the jokes. Spare us the snide remarks about karma or that this is the reason you always said guys shouldn't play in Summer League.

Markelle Fultz has what is reported as a high ankle sprain. We whine about it for a while, and talk about the progress of the players during Summer League.

Almost everyone would have been really alright with, perhaps very encouraged by, a one-year deal for JJ Redick. Almost no one thought Redick would signed a one-year deal. He did!

The Sixers signed Redick to a one-year, $23 million deal, and Amir Johnson to a one-year, $11 million deal.

We discuss the signings, and other news around the league, including Danny Ainge almost getting someone else.

It seems like just last week the NBA Draft was here and the Sixers were completing a trade for Markelle Fultz. It actually was last week.

The NBA never sleeps, and we're back for a free agency preview that will probably sound really stupid within 24 hours so listen right away.

We'll be back when something happens.

It actually happened! The Sixers drafted Markelle Fultz and have a real, full young core.

We discuss the pick, the night, whether Anžejs Pasečņiks is actually Blark, Joel Embiid signing the Sam Hinkie banner, and the second round selections and sales.

The drama that is normally reserved for draft night took place earlier this week. That's a good thing. We're aware that the Sixers will take Markelle Fultz with the first pick in the draft. That's great!

We do some YouTube Big Boarding with the second round, bask in the glory of Retweet Armageddon's success, John Gonzalez's Ringer piece, talk about Fultz and the potential starting lineup, and prepare for Thursday night's draft. 

We'll be back after the draft is over on Thursday night.

In the biggest trade since he who will not be named, the Sixers appear to be set to send a package of still unknown picks to the Celtics for the first overall pick, with which they will select Markelle Fultz.

Here's a late night podcast reacting to the news. As a reminder, we'll still have Derek Bodner (Godner) on Sunday to discuss the draft.

We love you. Thanks for listening!

The NBA Draft is less than two weeks away. Crazy that we're here again, right?

We're a day late this week, but we're giving you two experts for the price of one. Liberty Ballers' own Marc Whittington (who is blind) joins us, as well as SB Nation's Ricky O'Donnell. The guys give their best picks for the Sixers, and keep Mike satiated with some second round picks.
