ROSTER REPORT

July 23rd, 2010 admin

ARRIVALS:
–F Andres Nocioni (trade with Kings)
–C Spencer Hawes (trade with Kings)
–C Tony Battie (free agent from Nets)
DEPARTURES:
–C Samuel Dalembert (traded to Kings)
PLAYER NOTES:
–F Jason Kapono, a 3-point specialist, could be on the trading block. An online report indicated the Sixers were “open” to moving Kapono, who is in a crowded group of wing players (Andre Iguodala, Evan Turner, Lou Williams, Thaddeus Young, Andres Nocioni, Jodie Meeks and Willie Green). Kapono is in the final year of a contract that pays him $6.6 million.
–G Jrue Holiday led the Sixers in scoring (19.3 points) and assists (6.0) at the Orlando Pro Summer League. He was named to the all-tournament team despite appearing in just three of the Sixers’ five games, missing two due to a sore hamstring. Rookie G Evan Turner struggled, finishing with a 9.3-point average on .333 shooting from the field (.250 on 3-pointers).
–G Willie Green will participate in “Basketball without Borders” in Senegal from Aug. 5-8. Green will join former teammate Samuel Dalembert, Memphis’ Hasheem Thabeet and others on the trip.
DRAFT PICK:
–Evan Turner, G, 6-7, Ohio State (first round, No, 2) — Sixers like him for his versatility, scoring, ballhandling, maturity and competitiveness. Should start opposite Andre Iguodala on the wing.

NOTES, QUOTES

July 23rd, 2010 admin

–The Sixers signed 12-year NBA veteran C Tony Battie for the veterans’ minimum ($1.352 million). Their cap hit will be $850,000, meaning they’re still about $2 million below the luxury tax threshold. Battie is expected to bring some leadership and be an insurance policy with a group of largely young big men.
–This fall, the Sixers will hold training camp in Philadelphia for the second straight season after having been at Duke and Penn State in recent years. The move is perceived as a cost-cutting measure one year after the Sixers fielded a combined team (with the Nets) in the Orlando Pro Summer League.
QUOTE TO NOTE: “(Sixers coach Doug Collins) told me he thought I could be a major piece for this team as far as leadership and as a defensive closer.” — Journeyman C Tony Battie, who appeared in 15 games with the Nets last season.
