The 2014–15 Philadelphia 76ers season was the 76th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1]

The 76ers 2013 NBA draft pick, Nerlens Noel, would play his first season in a Sixer uniform, but for the third straight year, they acquired a center (by draft or trade) that would not play for them the first year, as number 3 overall pick Joel Embiid was out with foot and back issues. Michael Carter Williams was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for draft picks.[2] On December 1, 2014, the 76ers lost their 17th straight game to start the season 0–17, one loss shy of the New Jersey Nets 0–18 mark in 2009-10. On December 3, the 76ers won their first game of the season against the Minnesota Timberwolves avoiding the worst start without a win. The team finished with a record of 18–64 tied for the third worst record in franchise history (1995-1996, 18 wins; 2015-2016, 10 wins; 1972-1973, 9 wins).
