After playing a long road trip with a depleted squad in all games, the Sixers get back home this weekend with hopes that All-Star Center Joel Embiid will return when the team gets back to the Wells Fargo Center  Saturday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Amazingly, last Monday night they played without FOUR starters and beat the Kings 102-94 starting all bench players except second year guard Tyrese Maxey who’s playing at an All-Star level in place of missing in action Ben Simmons.

As president of basketball operations Daryl Morey has stated before, “Buckle in” on the Simmons trade front.

The Sixers won’t take back 40 cents on the dollar on any deal, which is the right move going forward. .
