There are some questions about the players currently on the 76ers roster that coach Brett Brown cannot answer. In the case of Danny Granger, for instance, one of the players acquired last week during Sam Hinkie's quest to corner the world market on second-round draft picks, Brown couldn't say for sure whether Granger would ever play for the team. "We're just trying to sort out what's best for both parties," Brown said. In this very strange season, that's not an easy one. On one hand, Granger would make it a better team.

Danny Granger got his wish. The 76ers negotiated a buyout of what's left of the forward's expiring contract on Wednesday, six days after he was acquired in a trade with the Indiana Pacers. Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie wouldn't disclose the buyout amount. Granger, however, was slated to receive around $4 million for the rest of the season. Assuming he clears waivers by 5 p.m. Friday, the 6-foot-9, 228-pounder can sign with a team of his choice. He is reportedly looking at championship contenders: the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls, and San Antonio Spurs.

Dwyane Wade's jumper with 0.1 seconds left in overtime gave Miami a 93-91 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night, extending the Heat's home-court winning streak to 12 games. Wade scored 28 points and LeBron James finished with 27 for the Heat. James helped to force overtime by hitting a game-tying three-pointer with 10.2 seconds left in regulation, then not allowing Indiana's Darren Collison to get a potential game-winning shot off. Danny Granger's runner with 2:01 left in overtime gave Indiana a 91-86 lead.

Danny Granger's status with the 76ers could be resolved on Tuesday. That's when the franchise may announce whether or not the 6-foot-9 forward, who was acquired in Thursday's trade with the Indiana Pacers, will remain with the team. Granger wants to play for an NBA championship contender, according to sources. And there's a belief the Sixers will negotiate a buyout of what's left of his expiring contract (about $4 million) to accommodate the former all-star. He must be on a postseason-bound team's roster by Saturday in order play in the playoffs.

J.R. Smith scored 32 points, Carmelo Anthony added 29, and the New York Knicks extended their winning streak to five games with a 100-85 victory over the Celtics in Boston on Tuesday night. The win moved the Knicks into second place in the Eastern Conference, percentage points ahead of the Indiana Pacers. The Celtics, who could face the Knicks in the first round of the playoffs, lost their fifth game in a row and remained in seventh. The Celtics, playing their second consecutive game without Kevin Garnett, were led by Jeff Green with 19 points and Paul Pierce with 16. But they committed 20 turnovers, while the Knicks, who average the fewest turnovers in the NBA, had just eight.

Stephon Marbury has left the New York Knicks and there is no word on when, or even whether, he might rejoin the team. Marbury was absent from the team's morning shootaround, and failed to show up when the Knicks played the host Phoenix Suns last night. The Knicks fell to the Suns, 113-102. Coach Isiah Thomas would only confirm that Marbury had left and that the guard would be welcomed back. One NBA player familiar with the situation told The Record, of Hackensack, N.J., punches were thrown during Monday's flight to Phoenix, and someone who was on the flight acknowledged awakening to a commotion as Thomas discussed his dissatisfaction with Marbury's play and a possible demotion from the starting lineup.

Carmelo Anthony scored 35 points, 12 in the third quarter when the game turned into a rout, and visiting Denver beat New York, 108-96, last night. Stephon Marbury scored 25 points for the Knicks, who have lost two straight and have the NBA's worst record at 17-45. Before the game, Knicks coach Larry Brown responded to Marbury's recent remarks that he needed to change his game and play more offensively. In comments that appeared in yesterday's New York Daily News, Marbury said he sacrificed his game for the sake of the team, but it didn't work out. "I went into this year trying to do something, to put myself in a situation where we can win, OK?"

  LeBron James dropped to the floor in Miami, holding the back of his head and then staggering a bit when he reached his feet. A few moments later, he was fine. And a few moments after that, the Miami Heat had complete control of Game 1 against the New York Knicks. James scored 32 points after shooting 10 for 14 from the field, and the Heat rode the strength of what became a 32-2 run to easily beat the Knicks, 100-67, on Saturday, striking first in the series between clubs that waged classic annual battles from 1997 through 2000 and are meeting for the first time since.

The 76ers are feeling good about themselves after winning two straight games and three of their last four. But that hasn't changed how the team is viewed by veterans around the NBA. "No one wants to go there," said an Eastern Conference player who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "Not right now. " Established players cringe at the thought of being traded to the 7-29 squad. Marquee free agents won't even consider the franchise. That's not surprising to the Sixers, especially coach Brett Brown and general manager Sam Hinkie.

WITH TWO first-round picks and five picks in the second round of the June 26 draft, there is little doubt the 76ers roster will look drastically different next season. Here's a look at who may be going and who may be staying: * Michael Carter-Williams ($2.3 million, signed through 2017-18): It seems to be a no-brainer that the soon-to-be-announced NBA rookie of the year will be back. But this time last year, I wrote about another young point guard who would be a key building block of the future in Jrue Holiday.

Evan Turner isn't afraid to stir things up. The outspoken Indiana Pacers reserve forward took an inadvertent shot at the 76ers' sparse crowds while commenting on Pacers coach Frank Vogel. "Frank is kind of a quiet guy," the former Sixer told the Indianapolis Star on Thursday. "Sometimes, I'm on the other side of the court and he doesn't have [a loud voice]. "In Philly, those gyms are empty so I can hear anybody talking. If somebody calls a play out, everybody hears it. But these games are packed, so sometimes it's hard to hear.

WELL, THAT'S just great. Danny Granger didn't blink, and Sixers president/general manager Sam Hinkie acquiesced to a buyout with the wingman they acquired from the Indiana Pacers for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Granger got what he wanted and presumably will sign with a team that has a shot at competing in the 2014 NBA Finals before hitting the market as an unrestricted free agent. This is a business. Doing Granger a favor is not what Hinkie was hired for. The Sixers had one minimal asset with Granger, his Larry Bird rights.

THE CHESS GAME continues, or so it appears. Acquired in a trade at last Thursday's deadline, former Indiana Pacers swingman Danny Granger has yet to put on a 76ers uniform and it is unclear if he ever will. The holdup appears to be several things. Granger, who has battled knee problems that have drained him of his star status in the league, might rather play elsewhere; say, for a team contending for a championship. In order for that to happen, the Sixers would have to buy out the remainder of his $14 million contract.

With the trade deadline passed, little suspense remains for the 76ers over their final 26 games. All that's left is a steady slog toward their reckoning with the Ping-Pong balls at the NBA draft lottery in May. Nevertheless, a degree of intrigue surrounded Sunday's practice as the basketball world awaited word on whether Danny Granger would suit up for the Sixers. It's a question that is just as important to the playoff contenders rumored to have interest in the former all-star as it is to the Sixers, who host the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

Forward Thaddeus Young tried valiantly, but couldn't mask his disappointment. As the 76ers head to the top of lottery, Young acted like somebody who lost out on the Powerball jackpot after expecting to cash in. This was the first day after the 76ers roster was gutted for a series of nondescript players and a bundle of second-round picks. And now the 25-year-old Young, the only remaining Sixer from their last playoff team - all the way back in 2011-12 - was putting up a brave front.
