Markelle Fultz' commerce inventory is at an all-time low, so inevitably, the Sixers are shortly working out of choices to proper the ship in 2018-2019. Philly's present dilemma was by no means extra evident than in yesterday's 123-121 loss at dwelling to the Atlanta Hawks.

However, Jimmy Butler wholly objected to the assertions made by his 2nd-year teammate, in stating that he despised the phrase "mushy." Butler's perception is that he and the 76ers merely lack the proper persistence "begin to end." He put it in these precise phrases.

"I do not just like the phrase 'mushy.' I simply do not assume that we did what we had been speculated to do," Butler stated in response. "I am not gonna say that anyone's mushy. I simply assume that we received beat in each facet of the sport. They got here out from the leap and did what they wished to do, they usually did that for 48 straight minutes."
