CAMDEN, NJ – The day after closing out the 2016-2017 campaign, the 76ers are conducting their annual season-in-review exit interviews with members of the roster at the team’s training complex in Camden.

Throughout the day, we’ll do our best to update this space as consistently as possible, compiling a running tab of quotes from each player after he finishes meeting with the Sixers’ coaching staff, and the media.

Here’s the tentative exit interview schedule that’s been put in place. The timing of the list is subject to change:

9:30 AM – 10:30AM

Gerald Henderson, on Sixers’ future:

“I’d say first off, you have the right base. You get to come in here, and practice in a gym like this. You have the weight room and training staff there every day, so you have no excuse, things other than talent, to get better. On top of that, you have some talent, some young talent ready to play. You saw what Joel is capable of doing. Dario. Haven’t seen Ben yet, but he is to me going to be a special player. Timmy Luawawu, who really kind of grew up before our eyes these last couple months has played great, and he’s got a great work ethic, and is a good kid, so he’s got a chance to be a really, really good played. Along with other guys, T.J., Nik, Cov. You’ve got a chance, given a healthy squad, to be pretty special. I’m looking forward to seeing what we’re able to do.”

Tiago Splitter, on finishing season healthy:

“I had a goal to play this season, and the Sixers gave me this opportunity. I’m very grateful for everything. I was playing a little bit, and last game, I played 22 [minutes], so it’s great for me. It feels like I wish the season would start now. I’m just going to keep working, and get ready for the next season. An important off-season for me, in terms of building what I did so far, getting more in shape, basketball shape.”

Still to come…
