Sam Hinkie, the GM of the 76ers, worked the soil in Philadelphia for three seasons. In 2016 he resigned and was replaced by Bryan Colangelo, who is on the verge of reaping the harvest. Many suspected that Colangelo, as president of the 76ers, would instantly spend the cap space that had been saved so meticulously by Hinkie, and turn the long-term investment into a quick gain on behalf of a franchise that hasn’t had a winning 82-game season in a dozen years.
With a glut of big men on the roster, the Philadelphia 76ers are looking at trade options for Jahlil Okafor. Per Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, 76ers head coach Brett Brown said Wednesday the team "will check with the rest of the league" to see what it could get back in a deal for Okafor.

At first they appeared to be taking a step back: Last December the Denver Nuggets demoted center Jusuf Nurkic in favor of starting his backup, Nikola Jokic, a former second-round pick. That move provided them with the leverage to drive forward: The Nuggets reached agreement on a three-year deal worth $90 million this summer with All-Star forward Paul Millsap, another second-rounder. The first move was daring. Nurkic, the 22-year-old incumbent, had arrived as the No.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
