Sixers To Reopen Practice Facility On Wednesday

The Sixers will begin a “phased reopening” of their practice facility on Wednesday, the team announced today in a press release. Players will be permitted to conduct voluntary individual workouts at the facility, in accordance with the strict guidelines implemented by the NBA.

The 76ers’ practice facility is located in Camden, New Jersey, rather than in Pennsylvania, so the team was waiting on the go-ahead from New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.

Murphy announced this morning that professional sports teams would be permitted to return “to training and even competition” in New Jersey (Twitter link). According to the Governor, the state has been engaged in “constant discussions” with teams about the necessary safety protocols.

With Brooklyn and Charlotte reopening their practice facilities today, 21 NBA teams have done so — Philadelphia will be No. 22. That leaves the Bulls, Celtics, Knicks, Mavericks, Pistons, Spurs, Warriors, and Wizards.

    76ers have 158 million team salary

    Which team is willing to accept Al Horford contract?

    Knicks, Hawks or Pistons?

    Al Horford, Zhaire Smith and a second round pick for Harrison Barnes.

    Barnes contract is at 24mil now and reduces by 2mil every season so that’s a great return for the Sixers. Barnes also fits the team better with his shooting and ability to guard wings.
    Kings were interested in Horford when he was in the Celtics and were going to offer him a deal before we got him. They also have a big issue with defence and Horford would be a good leader and defender for this team. His ability to play centre and shoot the ball would be good with Fox and Bagley. Kings would also get a second round pick and Smith who has failed for far but has potential.

    It’s saves the Sixers money, makes the team better and the kings get better especially on defence and get some young depth
