Andre Miller and Theo Ratliff have skipped the final Philadelphia 76ers' team meeting a day after they were eliminated from the playoffs.
Miller and Ratliff were both absent from Friday's meeting. Neither player offered team president Ed Stefanski an excuse. Stefanski says he has not been in touch with either player. Miller and Ratliff are both unrestricted free agents.
Ratliff criticized the Sixers' coaching staff after their 114-89 Game 6 loss to the Orlando Magic. Sixers coach Tony DiLeo says he doesn't agree with any of Ratliff's complaints about the staff. DiLeo says the Sixers were prepared and focused heading into their final game of the season.
Stefanski and DiLeo held individual meetings with the rest of the team on Friday.
