Brackins headed to D-League

Sixers second year forward Craig Brackins has been assigned to the NBA Development League where he'll play for the team's affiliate Maine Red Claws.

This will be the fourth time Brackins will head to the D-League. Last season he went three times to the Springfield Armor, the Sixers' old affiliate, where he averaged 20.1 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists in close to 38 minutes a game.

It's a good move for Brackins, who has seen hardly any time this season for the 18-7Sixers. He has played in just eight games this season for the team for a total of 27 minutes.
