Jimmer! Lance Stephenson! Melo! LeBron?!
Don’t even think about it. The Sixers aren’t interested. The Sixers have no plans of signing any big name, or little name, free agents this summer. Here’s what Brett Brown had to say about the situation (via Philly.com):
“It’s all aligned to we are not going to be pursuing free agents for a while,” said Sixers coach Brett Brown, whose franchise plans to build a new practice facility in two seasons. “We are about development. Once the alignment with development collides with a bunch of other things in the program, then you can start talking about free agents.“No free agent is going to want to come to Philadelphia at this stage. Why would a good free agent want to come in and be a part of a rebuild?”“You say, ‘Oh there’s a program of the future in an unbelievable city,’ ” Brown said. “That’s the evolution of the program aligned with the practice facility, which is two years away.”
