Knicks' Derek Fisher Fires Back at People Complaining About Team's Win Streak

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Knicks seemed all but certain to get the most ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery by securing the worst record in the NBA. But after a two-game winning streak that is no longer guaranteed, and head coach Derek Fisher doesn't care.

"I'm sure people are upset with us," Fisher said. "But I don't think you can ever go out there and basically try and not play your best. Those two things don't go together."

Securing the worst record gives you a 25% chance of getting the number one pick, and guarantees a top-4 pick.

If the Thunder beat the Timberwolves on Wednesday, they clinch the worst record in the league. If the Knicks beat the Pistons and the Sixers lose to the Heat on Wednesday, then they tie for the second-worst mark in the NBA.

"That has no bearing on these guys' lives and their careers and their livelihoods -- who we pick next year," Fisher said. "This is about them, and they went out and played that way."

The Knicks haven't had the number one pick since 1985 when they drafted Patrick Ewing.

76ers' Brett Brown Expects Joel Embiid to Make NBA Debut in Summer League

Cooper Neil/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Philadelphia 76ers fans have been patiently awaiting the debut of prized rookie center Joel Embiid, and it looks like they'll finally have a chance to see him play this summer. Head coach Brett Brown said he “personally” would be disappointed if Embiid didn’t play in the summer league.

Embiid has not played a single game this season as he recovers from a foot injury that required surgery prior to the 2014 NBA Draft.

“Personally, I expect him to play in the summer league,” Brown said via Keith Pompey of Philly.com.  “But if I guessed any of this wrong, I want to make sure that the club is on record not being definitive. We are not in the position to say that now.”

“I just feel like it’s too definitive if we come out and say he’s definitely playing now,” Brown added. “It’s not so much any trepidation I have to 100 percent declare it. I don’t feel like it’s responsible to say that now. He’s heading in that direction.”

A possible number one pick, Embiid slipped to number three in the draft partially due to concern over his health.

Embiid spent one season at Kansas where he averaged 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game.

ESPN: Sixers Waive Center JaVale McGee

NBA via Denver Nuggets(NEW YORK) -- Despite letting it be known that he had hoped to stay in Philadelphia, the Philadelphia 76ers have waived center JaVale McGee after just six games with the team.

McGee was acquired during the trade deadline in a trade with the Denver Nuggets.

The Sixers waived McGee prior to the midnight deadline that makes McGee eligible to appear in the playoffs this season with another team.

Not only will McGee now have a chance to sign with a contending team, he will still earn next season's $12 million salary as well as the remainder of his $11.25 million salary this season.

"I don't want to get bought out," McGee told local reporters shortly after the trade. "That's not a positive thing. When you think about it, you don't get all of your money when you get bought out."

The 27-year-old McGee is in the midst of his seventh NBA season. In six games with the Sixers, he averaged 3.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game.

ESPN: Michael Carter-Williams Sent to the Bucks

Jim McIssac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired guard Michael Carter-Williams from the Philadelphia 76ers in a three-team deal that also sends Brandon Knight to the Phoenix Suns, according to ESPN NBA Insider Marc Stein.

According to Stein, Milwaukee also receives Miles Plumlee and Tyler Ennis, while Philadelphia gets draft picks.

The move is surprising considering the 23-year-old Carter-Williams is the reigning rookie of the year. In 41 games this season he's averaged 15 points, 6.2 rebounds, 7.4 assists, and 1.5 steals per game.

"I can't lie I'm shocked," Carter-Williams tweeted. "I love this city thank you for everything. I can honestly say I gave it my all. I wish Philly nothing but the best."

The Suns receive the 23-year-old Knight. He has started 52 games this season, averaging 17.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.6 steals per game, while averaging 41% from 3-point land.
