"We want to be an elite team, challenging for a title as soon as possible," Harris said. He also mentioned he doesn't use the word "tanking" during his interview. Despite a 26-game losing streak allowing a league-worst 109.9 points per game, they still managed a better record than the Milwaukee Bucks. The Sixers are armed with their draft pick as well as New Orleans', so they'll have an opportunity to turn things around.
Eric Bledsoe has remained noncommittal about his status as a restricted free agent this summer.
He was superb in his first season with the Suns and the team did not extend his contract heading into the season. However, the Suns will almost do anything they can to bring him back, and Bledsoe seems to be a part of the team and wasn't happy about missing out on the playoffs. "The way we lost the last couple games to the Spurs and Dallas, it definitely put a taste in my mouth," Bledsoe said. He'll have high-end fantasy value next year no matter where he lands.

He was sent to the D-League for extra playing time against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Kuzmic grabbed a game-high 18 rebounds in the win. In three D-League games he posted averages of 20.3 points, 15.3 rebounds, and shot an outstanding 77.1 percent from the field.
