Training Camp On Hawk Hill

After previous seasons at Duke and Penn State, the 76ers are moving their training camp to Saint Joseph's University.

A source familiar with the situation said the move is not related to the struggling economy.

''Why travel if you don't have to?'' the source said. ''This makes it easier for the fans, the media, everyone.''

Saint Joseph's is scheduled to dedicate its new athletic facility next Friday. By training on Hawk Hill, the players and coaches would also be within a few minutes of their official practice site at Philadelphia College Of Osteopathic Medicine.
