    Darius Songaila and Craig Brackins did not practice with the Sixers this morning in the first session of training camp because their trade from the New Orleans Hornets had not been officially completed.

    The two big men were acquired for Willie Green and Jason Smith. The holdup was Green's physical with the Hornets, which raised red flags about a knee injury.

    A source told the Daily News that the teams have since agreed to the option to exchange second-round picks in 2011, which cemented the trade.

    Songaila and Brackins are expected to practice in tonight's evening session.
