From Shams and others:

Right, so Ennis is just looking for a new deal. I don’t blame him. He was solid for the Sixers in the playoffs as a capable defender who could hit the offensive glass and knock down the occasional three pointer. He’s only 28 years old.

First priority is Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, then the Sixers will turn to Ennis, JJ Redick, and perhaps Mike Scott. The wing market has a number of guys valued in that $1.5 million to $3 million range, so we’ll see how it plays out and what kind of deal Ennis can get elsewhere. Keep in mind you’ve also got Zhaire Smith returning from injury and multiple draft picks the Sixers can use on young two-way wings.

  1. As noted, WWE put extra effort into hiding Brock Lesnar before his surprise return in the main event of last night’s WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view.

    None of the men’s MITB Ladder Match competitors in the match were aware of Lesnar’s return ahead of time. PWInsider reports that the competitors were told that there would be a spot at the end of the match where Ali would be standing on top of the ladder, and would be tipped over. They were not told who would be coming out to do the spot.

    There was also talk throughout the day that Ali would be winning the match, another sign that WWE took extreme measures to keep Lesnar’s return a secret.

    1. Wraslin’ is more ‘real’ than the sixers team of coddled unmotivated pi$$ant players.

  2. Please post more useless sixers updates.
    There arent enough of them.
    Isn’t that lazy f Simmons dating Caitlyn Jenner or something?

  3. Best of luck. I’ll pass.

    Also hard pass on Harris unless he’s taking significantly less than the max.

    Max Jimmy, bring Redick and Mike Scott back.
