(Sixers GM) Sam Hinkie is taking heat. He may not realize it, because he doesn’t pay much attention to what is written or said about him around here, but he is. We’re closing in on Thursday’s NBA draft, and the Sixers have the No. 3 pick and the No. 10 pick and a chance to quicken the pace of their rebuilding process, and Hinkie isn’t talking. He’s not granting any on-the-record interviews. The Sixers have announced that he won’t be available to the media on draft night, that he won’t speak until Friday. He’s become the J.D. Salinger of GMs.

On talk radio and social media, even among some of the Sixers’ beat reporters, Hinkie’s silence is regarded as outrageous, a nose-thumbing at reporters and fans desperate for insight and information.
