Philadelphia 76ers


ORLANDO, Fla. – Free agents can begin signing contracts with teams today. LeBron James is the most coveted free agent, of course, and his destination is unknown.


PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Carter-Williams received the NBA rookie of the year award on Monday, something to show in a dismal season for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Five games ago, Dwight Howard was the only Rockets player to appear in every game. Then he was forced to miss three games after having fluid drained from a cyst on his left ankle.
For a game that was still tied 18 minutes in, the Houston Rockets' stat sheet looks pretty good in their 120-98 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

In the end, the expected happened when the Rockets hosted the Sixers on Thursday night.
