Has he officially opted in for this year? I have not seen any reports confirming one way or the other.




I haven't seen anything either, although his comments in the Bucknell video and in one article make it appear that is his intent. Last year the final day to opt out was June 29th.

Good move on Mike's part. But I'll be surprised if he finishes the season in Atlanta.

It makes sense for Mike. Atlanta is going to be terrible this year and many years to come.

Deal is official.

I hate the NBA other than tracking Muscala so I know nothing about OKC. What does this mean for playing time?

Looks like it was a three team deal and Muscala is now a 76er.

PhillySportsTalk is reporting that Muscala is expected to get a lot of PT as the backup PF.

Finally I have a reason to become a Sixers fan again. Congrats to Mike. This is a great opportunity with a team on the rise.

I find this interesting. The 76ers dumped a couple of non rotation players in this trade to get Mike. The sixers have a lot of depth in the 4 and 5 spots. I wish him nothing but the best and hope he can make the roster.

Somebody explain to me why Atlanta would trade for Carmelo Anthony and buy out his contract. I don't understand the NBA.

Teams like expiring contracts to create cap space for next season. I know there is more involved than just this however but this is a big reason. And Mike is in the same situation with his expiring contract.

Atlanta is a dumpster fire is why. I think Mike will enjoy his time in Philly and I do think he’ll lots of PT as he enters the prime of his career.

Nice Forbes article. Interesting that he may be teammates with Kyle Korver again.

A Mike Muscala Top Ten list from a website called thesixersense.com

They apparently like Mike and the pick up.

I can't wait to buy a Muscala Sixers jersey! It will be my first NBA jersey since high school.
