Former Villanova basketball star Dante Cunningham will not face charges for possession of marijuana, drug parapernalia and a loaded pellet gun. The charges were withdrawn yesterday in Radnor Township. Cunningham, a power forward for the Charlotte Bobcats, was arrested in early May after he was stopped on Lancaster Avenue and police allegedly detected the smell of marijuana inside his car. He also was charged with an equipment violation on his car and disorderly conduct because of unreasonable noise.

Eddie Jordan, the former 76ers coach, surfaced yesterday at the Charlotte Bobcats' training camp practice. This would appear to be his first public appearance since being fired by the Sixers at the end of last season, although he interviewed for the coaching job at Rutgers. The Sixers were 27-55 in Jordan's only season. He left with two remaining guaranteed seasons on his contract, thought to be worth a total of $6 million. His attempt to install the Princeton offense never worked.

Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA Finals and is one of the franchise's all-time great players. He is the franchise leader in 40-point games (76) and three-pointers (885) and is second behind Hal Greer in points (19,931)

Michael Beasley griped about some calls, tumbled after missing layups, then shook his head in disappointment after a rebound bounced off his outstretched hands. After his first summer league game drew raves, Beasley looked like a rookie in his second. One day after scoring 28 points in his much-hyped debut, Beasley returned to earth yesterday, finishing with only nine points in Miami's 90-81 summer league win over New Jersey in Orlando. The second overall pick in last month's draft was a mere mortal, missing all but one of his 13 shots from the field and collecting nearly as many fouls (seven; there's no automatic disqualification in summer league)

The Sixers have signed free-agent center Primoz Brezec to a 1-year contract worth $1.1 million. The 7-1 Brezec, who entered the league with the Indiana Pacers as a first-round draft choice in 2000 (No. 27 overall), is the fifth big man on the current roster, joining Dalembert, Elton Brand, Marreese Speights and Jason Smith. The signing was first reported last week in the Daily News. "We feel that Primoz will provide us with additional size and depth in the front court, but just as beneficial is the wealth of experience he brings to the team not only on the NBA level, but internationally as well," Sixers president/general manager Ed Stefanski said in a statement.

A blockbuster trade involving Tracy McGrady of the Orlando Magic and Steve Francis of the Houston Rockets dominated the NBA rumor mill yesterday. ESPN reported on its Web site that a McGrady-Francis deal would be made, provided that none of the other key players in the trade were selected in today's expansion draft by the Charlotte Bobcats. The trade would send Juwan Howard to Houston with McGrady, while Orlando would get Francis, Cuttino Mobley and Kelvin Cato. For salary-cap reasons, Tyronn Lue would also go to Houston in the trade, according to ESPN.

CHARLOTTE - The 76ers lost to the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night. So what else is new? The 111-105 decision marked the Sixers' fourth consecutive defeat and 32d loss in 34 games. But the Sixers (17-63) played much better than expected, especially coming off consecutive double-digit losses to the Memphis Grizzlies (Friday) and the Toronto Raptors (Wednesday) on this three-game road trip. So this six-point setback could be seen as a moral victory for the tanking franchise.

NOT SURPRISINGLY, if 76ers coach Brett Brown had a vote for rookie of the year, he'd cast it for his point guard, Michael Carter-Williams. That responsibility to pick the top rookie falls to media members who cover the NBA, and most will probably agree with Brown. But for all the accolades rung up so far for MCW - he gained his third rookie of the month award Tuesday - his coach expects to see improvement over the summer from the skinny 22-year-old, as he's improved in his coach's eyes during this season.

Not surprisingly, the 76ers lost again Wednesday night. This time, it was at the hands of the Charlotte Bobcats. And it wasn't even close. Dominating from start to finish, the Bobcats prevailed, 123-93, at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (16-59) have lost two straight and 28 of 29 games. They are riding their 12th losing streak of the season. There was little that the Sixers did right, and there was next to nothing that they stopped the Bobcats (37-38) from doing. "There was spirit that was knocked out of us, early," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

THIS ISN'T a season of understanding for the 76ers. At times it's hard to understand exactly what they are doing on the defensive end. Sometimes the offense is utterly head-scratching. Numbers don't make sense in determining the outcome of a game, and the reasoning for a win or a loss can be inexplicable. There was a bit of all of that last night at the Wells Fargo Center as the Sixers hosted the Charlotte Bobcats. When you see that the Sixers turned the ball over 24 times, another loss seemed to be a foregone conclusion.

At this point, the 76ers couldn't care less about style points. When a team is struggling like they are, any type of win is appreciated. So despite 24 turnovers, the Sixers had to be elated Wednesday night after a 95-92 victory over the lowly Charlotte Bobcats, especially with how it ended. Thaddeus Young hit the decisive three-pointer to break a tie with 3.2 seconds left. Charlotte immediately called a timeout, but Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

CHARLOTTE - Before their game even started last night against the Charlotte Bobcats, the 76ers were in a hole, as rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams was back in Philly nursing a sore knee. Then, as has been the norm lately, they got themselves in a bigger hole in the first quarter. Charlotte made 14 of its 25 first-quarter shots and scored 36 points. In the past three games, teams are shooting 63.1 percent (41-for-65) in the first quarter against the Sixers and averaging a little less than 37 points.

CHARLOTTE - The road woes continue for the 76ers. On Friday, they fell to the Charlotte Bobcats, 105-88, at Time Warner Cable Arena in what was their eighth consecutive road loss. As a result, the Sixers (7-13) dropped to 1-8 in road games. This setback also marked their 11th loss in 14 games - home or away. "We lost a lot in general, right?" Evan Turner said. "Not just the road. I don't think the road or being at home is any different. We just have to keep coming out and playing hard.

IT CERTAINLY hasn't turned into an epidemic yet, but it is a growing concern for Brett Brown and his coaching staff. Entering last night's game against the Orlando Magic, the 76ers were shooting just 70.2 percent from the free-throw line, third worst in the league. They were barely ahead of the Charlotte Bobcats (70 percent) and slightly ahead of Detroit (66.1). The Pistons have one of the all-time worst foul shooters in Andre Drummond, who had made just 17 of 53 (32.1 percent). So what to do?

THAT THE 76ers are a little behind where coach Brett Brown wants them to be isn't surprising, especially when you consider they lost their last two preseason games by a combined 56 points. With expectations nil and rebuilding the theme, this was to be expected. But it just might be a little bit worse right now than thought. A crushing home loss to the shorthanded Brooklyn Nets was followed 2 days later by a resounding loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. At one point, Charlotte had built a 39-point lead.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - New 76ers coach Brett Brown will tell you that folks usually think of blueberries and lobsters they when bring up the state of Maine. "Not NBA coaches," said Brown, who is from South Portland. "It's highly unusual, extremely consequential that he and I are coaching against each other in the NBA. I'm proud of him. " Brown spoke of Steve Clifford, whose Charlotte Bobcats faced the Sixers Thursday morning at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Like Brown, the Island Falls, Maine, native is a rookie head coach.
