Colangelo doesn't help Sixers in game of offseason poker

philly.com — In retrospect, the most revealing moment of Bryan Colangelo's brief time as the 76ers' general manager came late on the night of the NBA draft, when he did so much to present himself as the well-meaning fellow you'd want sitting next to you at the poker table.

Sielski: Pederson and Wentz to be linked forever

philly.com — Doug Pederson may be craftier than he lets on. Consider the Eagles' quarterback situation, for instance, but just for a little while. If you consider it for any longer than a minute, you run the risk of giving yourself a nosebleed. That's how muddled and confusing it is.

Sielski: Can the Sixers' Colangelo turn Saric the idea into Saric the player?

articles.philly.com — But this memory of Saric, long renowned as a wunderkind in his native Croatia, was only Colangelo's most recent. Over his final years as the Toronto Raptors' GM and president, Colangelo had tracked Saric's development, as many NBA executives had.

Sielski: Brown must strike right balance for Embiid

philly.com — Days after the 2014 NBA draft, after the 76ers selected Joel Embiid with the No. 3 overall pick, their head coach offered what seemed at the time a fascinating hypothetical. Over the two subsequent years, as everyone has waited for the navicular bone in Embiid's right foot to heal fully, that draft has always been framed as the greatest what-if of Sam Hinkie's tenure as the team's general manager.

Sielski: Phillies minor leaguer Jairo Munoz faces another challenge

philly.com — Not surprisingly, Jairo Munoz was scared to death. It was late April, and he felt that telltale twinge of pain in his right elbow after throwing a pitch.
