Though the Sixers won't officially open up camp until the end of the summer, Doc Rivers already has plans for a little pre-season getaway with the boys.

Yes, you read that correctly; after spending the first two training camps of the Rivers era hunkered down in Camden at the team's eponymous training facility, the Sixers are going to run their organized team activities in South Carolina, where the good Doc hopes to have some team-building, play some basketball, and maybe teach a little US history to Joel Embiid and company.

Now granted, is a trip to South Carolina really the best use of the Sixers' time? Eh, probably not; the team currently has more players signed to one-way contracts than they have available roster spots and with as many as four new rotational players set to debut in red, white, and blue, maybe the team's collective time would be better used actually developing a cohesive, complementary rotation with plays drawn up to get the most out of dynamic players like Tyrese Maxey.

… then again, field trips are fun, and after the team sort of gave up on their head coach at the end of the Miami series, getting the guys on the same page is vital for their on-court development and eventual cohesion. Considering the heat on Rivers' seat in South Philly so far this summer, why not let the championship-winning coach attempt to recapture his 2008 glory and see if he can get his guys on the right page? Worst case scenario, it doesn't work, and Sam Cassell will be planning out where to hold training camp for the summer of 2023.
