Sixers’ Andre Drummond signing digs up his Joel Embiid beef

Drummond signing brings back memories of beef with Embiid originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

The Sixers reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Andre Drummond on Tuesday, an unexpected move to find a backup center from President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey.

Drummond feels like an odd fit after Morey stressed the importance of finding a flexible big to play backup center, though we’ll see what the team has in mind. But the really strange fit seems like more of a chemistry question, because Drummond and Sixer superstar Joel Embiid have some hilariously contentious history with one another dating all the way back to 2018.

Allow me to jog your memory.

The beef started way back in 2017, when Embiid got the better of Drummond for the second time that season. He scored 25 to Drummond’s 14 and managed to get Drummond to foul out, at which point he

Why one ESPN insider believes Washington will end up signing Ryan Fitzpatrick

ESPN insider thinks Washington will end up with Fitzpatrick originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Since entering the NFL in 2005, Ryan Fitzpatrick has played for eight different franchises. And due to his soon-to-be-expired contract with the Dolphins, it appears that the passer and his beard could be headed to yet another destination when free agency begins.

Could that destination be Washington, though?

One ESPN insider thinks so.

During a Thursday appearance on SportsCenter, Field Yates joined for a segment where he predicted the landing spots for tons of different signal-callers, and when he focused in on the Burgundy and Gold, Fitzpatrick was the name he brought up.

“The Washington Football Team is kind of like the Patriots in that no man’s land,” he began.

“They have the 19th overall pick, probably can’t select a first-round quarterback, have a really good defense,” he continued. “How about Ryan Fitzpatrick, who I
