The Sixer Sense Podcast welcomes a special guest this week: Philadelphia 76ers writer for NBC Sports Philadelphia, Noah Levick! Noah joined the guys on the podcast to help provide in-depth insight and analysis on last season’s disappointment and the Sixers’ offseason thus far.

First up, Noah gives Lucas and Jonathan his take on the 2022-23 Sixers season and what went wrong in the Eastern Conference Semifinals series versus the Boston Celtics. Can the fans be excited for next season with a roster that has not seriously improved? Noah also provides the storyline he is most looking forward to heading into next season. Can you guess what it is?

Following up on last year, Lucas shifts the discussion to the Sixers’ offseason. The team has made some moves this offseason, but nothing super splashy. What are Noah’s favorite and least favorite moves so far that Daryl Morey has pulled off? Will the Sixers make any more moves this summer that will help bolster a center-heavy roster? The answer may surprise you here.

The podcast naturally has to end with the biggest offseason storyline for the Sixers, James Harden. The disgruntled perennial All-Star is on the Sixers roster as of this writing and at the moment it seems like he will start the season here unless the Los Angeles Clippers modify their trade offer. Daryl Morey has been steadfast in his conviction that he will only move Harden for a star-caliber player or draft assets that can be packaged for a star-caliber player.

Lucas and Jonathan get Noah’s initial thoughts on when Harden first requested a trade. What does he think happened with the Houston Rockets’ interest? And is Los Angeles the best trade partner for the Sixers? Noah breaks down how this whole situation could have been avoided and if that would have been the right move for both Harden and the Sixers going forward. Finally, Noah gives his prediction for how and when this Harden saga will end. Give the podcast a listen to find out!
