What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Mark Daigneault said Jeremiah Robinson-Earl felt an “alarming amount of pain” during his warmup in Dallas.
That led to the fracture in his foot being revealed. – 8:43 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Doc Rivers said the Sixers “hope” Seth Curry will return tonight vs. Mavs from back spasms. He went through “most of shootaround” today. – 8:31 PM

Detroit Pistons PR @Pistons_PR
Saddiq Bey became the 5th-fastest player in NBA history to reach 300 career 3FGM tonight vs. BOS, reaching the milestone in 122 games. Only D. Robinson (95 games), A. Edwards (112), L. Doncic (117) and D. Lillard (117) have made 300 3FG faster. #Pistons

Jason Kidd said he hopes to play Trey Burke more minutes tonight to see how he handles the opportunity. – 8:27 PM

Too insulting to call Pascal Siakam “Good Ben Simmons?”
I mean, insulting to Pascal. – 8:23 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Just one mans opinion but I would trade Simmons for wings who can shoot defend and score because I think maxey is fine at point guard. Trading for harden kills his growth – 7:41 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
MVP odds haven’t moved since the James Harden-to-Philly rumors flared up. Joel Embiid remains the favorite, but at the same +200 odds. Nikola Jokic close behind at +300. – 7:41 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Technically, Philadelphia *has to* put in extra money into a Simmons-Harden deal, about $2.1 million. Thybulle and Maxey each make just enough to do it, but also works with Korkmaz, or Reed + Joe, or lots of other combinations.…6:13 PM

StatMuse @statmuse
Joel Embiid is averaging more points (33.5) than minutes (32.3) in 2022. Imagine him playing with Harden.
Win $100 with @PrizePicks when he scores 1 point tonight.

2022 NBA trade deadline rumors: Sixers to pursue James Harden, Nets open to discussing Ben Simmons swap…5:44 PM

Mark Deeks @MarkDeeksNBA
Ben Simmons will balance out the Nets offensively, add defensive dimensions, and expand their window. On the court, he will help them.
Off it? 🤷 – 5:39 PM

Trey Kerby @treykerby
Every Sixers game will be 4+ hours if they have Embiid and Harden. – 5:37 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
There is some amusement in Philadelphia regarding the latest Nets/Harden reporting — if he’s unhappy, a threat to walk, and disrupting on-court chemistry, the thought goes, why should they give up extra to go get him now?…5:34 PM

Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
Zach LaVine will not play tonight against the Indiana Pacers due to back spasms, per Billy Donovan.
He might be ready to play Sunday against Philadelphia, but that decision will be made later. – 5:33 PM

Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip
Would guarantee Brooklyn is asking for Maxey, picks, in addition to Simmons, in exchange for Harden. – 5:20 PM

Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
James Harden is unhappy playing with Joel Embiid and would like to get traded, per 2023 NBA media reports – 5:16 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Maxey being carried out of Wells Fargo Center on KD and Simmons’ shoulders after hitting the series-winning shot against the 76ers in the East Finals. Doc says he doesnt know that question or the answer right now when asked if Harden can be the point guard of a championship team. – 5:09 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
What do we think Brooklyn prioritizes in a Simmons + for Harden deal?
Maxey obviously has the most upside. Curry probably does the most for their specific roster needs. Thybulle and Simmons could survive offensively with KD and Kyrie. Picks open up the most flexibility. – 5:09 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I’ve never needed a 30-for-30 as badly as I need one on the roster-building war between the Nets, Celtics and 76ers over the past decade or so.
All three have looked positioned for multiple championships at some point only to be tripped up by one of the others. – 5:03 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Tyrese Maxey is averaging 17/5/4 and shooting 40% from downtown in his first year as a starter.
He’ll be 21 years old at the start of next season.
And will make just $2.7 million next season and $4.3 the following season.
I’m not trading that dude if I’m Morey. – 5:00 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
The Atlanta Hawks have been most engaged with the 76ers in recent weeks, according to sources. The sides have discussed a framework around John Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovic and draft compensation, those sources have said.

📅 On this day in 2021, the @Golden State Warriors Draymond Green dished out 15 assists in a win over the Mavericks.
Since the NBA began tracking starters in 1970-71, Green is one of only three players to record at least 15 assists in a game in which they were listed as the starting center. PM
