The 1998–99 NBA season was the 76ers 50th season in the National Basketball Association, and 36th season in Philadelphia. After a four-month lockout wiped out half the season, the Sixers signed free agents Matt Geiger and George Lynch, while re-signing former 76ers forward Rick Mahorn. At midseason, they traded second-year forward Tim Thomas and Scott Williams to the Milwaukee Bucks for Tyrone Hill. The Sixers recorded their first winning month in five years winning 8 of 13 games in February, on their way to making the playoffs for the first time in eight years with a 28–22 record, third in the Atlantic Division. Allen Iverson led the league in scoring averaging 26.8 points per game, and was selected to the All-NBA First Team. In the first round of the playoffs, the Sixers defeated the 3rd–seeded Orlando Magic in four games, but were swept in the semifinals by the Indiana Pacers in four straight games. Following the season, Mahorn retired after making his second stint with the Sixers.
