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.
