Day 1 of 76ers camp

*Note: Both Craig Brackins and Darius Songaila, formerly of the New Orleans Hornets, did not practice this morning. They were sitting on the sidelines in sweats. There was some concern that one of the four trade members, Willie Green and Jason Smith were sent to New Orleans, was holding up the conclusion of the deal. As of a few minutes ago, Brackins and Songaila are officially members of the Sixers. Both will practice during tonight's session. The Sixers officially said that there was an "undisclosed amendment" to the deal with New Orleans, but the trade is now complete. More details as we get them.

The Sixers are on the court herat St. Joseph's University. It's the first practice of the 2010-11 season and the first of two practices today.

Here is the training camp roster: Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Jodie Meeks, Lou Williams, Andre Iguodala, Jason Kapono, Thaddeus Young, Darius Songaila, Elton Brand, Tony Battie, Andres Nocioni, Marreese Speights, Spencer Hawes, Craig Brackins, guard James Florence (Mercer), 6-foot 11 F/C Trent Plaisted (BYU), and Chris Quinn (former guard for the Miami Heat).

That's 14 players under contract and three players on the training camp roster.
