New 76ers coach Doug Collins added Quin Snyder to his coaching staff in a developmental role. The last three seasons, the 43-year-old Snyder was the head coach of the Austin Toros, which is the NBA Developmental League team of the San Antonio Spurs. Previously, Snyder spent seven seasons as the head coach at Missouri, ending in 2006. Top prospects visit. The Sixers next week will bring in four of the players who are expected to be among the first five to go in the June 24 NBA draft.

John Wall scored seven of his 15 points in overtime, and No. 2 Kentucky rallied from five down with 2 minutes, 28 seconds left in regulation to beat Mississippi State, 75-74, yesterday in Nashville for their 26th Southeastern Conference tournament championship. The Wildcats (32-2) tied the game at 64 when DeMarcus Cousins' layup off Wall's missed three-point attempt beat the regulation buzzer. Wall thought the Wildcats had won on Cousins' shot and tackled him near the press table, celebrating a bit early.

THE SACRAMENTO Kings fired coach Paul Westphal yesterday, cutting ties after two-plus seasons amid a slow start and an escalating dispute with center DeMarcus Cousins. Assistant coach Keith Smart, let go by the Golden State Warriors this summer after one season, was named interim coach hours before the Kings defeated the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, 103-100. Marcus Thornton scored 27 points and Tyreke Evans added 16 for the Kings. A talented and athletic - albeit raw - roster led by Westphal is 2-5 and in last place in the Pacific Division.

The NBA's hottest team will be playing at home in Los Angeles - and it's the Clippers, not the Lakers. There's a Finals rematch in Miami, a holiday matinee in Brooklyn, Kobe vs. the Knicks, and the 20th anniversary of one of Michael Jordan's most memorable games in Chicago. Welcome to Christmas, NBA style. A five-game slate makes up the NBA's Christmas Day schedule, which this year comes with the additional bonus of not being the first day back after a lockout forced the cancellation of the opening portion of last season.

The Sacramento Kings on Saturday suspended center DeMarcus Cousins - for an indefinite period - for what the club called "unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team. " No details were released. Cousins and Kings coach Keith Smart exchanged words in the locker room during halftime of Friday night's 97-85 loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles. Smart benched Cousins for the entire second half and ordered him to remain in the locker room. "We're trying to set a standard here, and when guys move below that standard, things are going to take place," Smart said after the game.

PORTLAND, Ore. - For Lavoy Allen, it was just a matter of being more aggressive. The 76ers reserve big man scored in double digits in each of the two games before Saturday's matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moga Center. The game ended too late for this edition. "The few minutes I do get in there, I try to do whatever I can," said Allen, who averaged 18.9 minutes per game through Friday. "I try not to conserve any energy, just go all-out and leave it all on the floor.

LAS VEGAS - Kyle Lowry is about to take his basketball career to another level. Last month, the North Philly native was one of 12 players named to the United States' men's Olympic basketball team for the Rio Olympics in August. The team begins training camp here Monday at UNLV's Mendenhall Center for an experience Lowry hopes concludes with a gold medal. "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would get picked for Team USA, but it worked out," he said. "It's just an exciting moment, an exciting time.

Less than three weeks after the 76ers had made the sudden and stunning decision to hire him as their chairman of basketball operations, Jerry Colangelo cleared time on his schedule for a counseling session with Jahlil Okafor. The Sixers were coming to Phoenix on Dec. 26 to play the Suns. Because Colangelo still lives there, he made certain to set aside time that day for a sit-down with Okafor, for his first chance since joining the Sixers to talk to a player who held so much promise and, over the two previous months, had done so much to embarrass the franchise.

The 76ers suffered another fourth-quarter meltdown. This time, it came against the dysfunctional and seemingly uninspired Sacramento Kings. Leading by 11 points in the fourth quarter, the Sixers went on to lose, 114-110, Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the final game before the all-star break for both teams. This setback had to hurt the Sixers (8-45), who were without power forward Nerlens Noel. "Coach [Brett] Brown kept saying, 'Don't let them keep hanging around.

REALITY WILL descend on the 76ers on Saturday in the form of the Golden State Warriors. They will correct any misperception of the Sixers, just in case anyone started to think they were close to being viable. As that moment approaches, it might be wise to understand what this season, and the next, is really about. The team's six wins since Jerry Colangelo usurped the throne from stubborn Sam Hinkie the last month seem to have clouded the matter. Lately, excitement generated by a win over the Suns and a close game at Detroit, games Jahlil Okafor missed because of illness, have the faithful joyous about Nerlens Noel and clamoring for less Jah. That is foolishness.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - John Calipari's office in the $30 million Joe Craft Center is tiny, smaller than the old office Phil Martelli had at Saint Joseph's. A new, larger office is being constructed behind a false wall, just steps away. The Craft Center, which houses the Kentucky basketball offices and a practice court, is attached to Memorial Coliseum, where Adolph Rupp's teams played. It is surprisingly less extravagant than some of the hoops palaces that have been built on other campuses.

THERE WAS the stutter-step dribble that led to a lefthanded floater. Another time it was the one-dribble power move to the left that led to a layup. There also was a quick power move to the right baseline over a smaller defender that went for a dunk and an ensuing free throw. He also ran down Chris Paul from behind and flicked the ball away from him during a dribble, leading to a basket at the other end. Nerlens Noel's progression can't be talked or written about enough. Last night, he was matched up against Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, one of the premier rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA, though offensively challenged.

HIS WORDS were almost as bold as his center's play of late. Following Wednesday's 99-85 win at Denver, 76ers coach Brett Brown emphatically stated: "People have to really start talking about him for rookie of the year. You don't just repetitively bang out these types of performances and produce the numbers that he is producing. He is a complete game changer. He is a complete defensive presence when he's lurking to block shots. He just continues to improve at this time of year. He keeps moving up the food chain and heading in the direction that we're all so thrilled about.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — It was the same story as usual for the 76ers. They played hard, kept things competitive, but ultimately exited their opponent's arena with a loss. This time, it was a 107-106 setback to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night at Sleep Train Arena. Down one point with 8.2 seconds left, the Sixers called a 20-second timeout. When the game resumed, they faked the ball to Robert Covington and gave the ball to Hollis Thompson. It was a play the Sixers had a lot of success with this season.

IT LOOKED as though his sitting streak would reach four straight after not getting a minute in the first half. If that had happened, Henry Sims wouldn't have like it, but he wouldn't have complained. Lately, 76ers coach Brett Brown has been dividing Sims' normal minutes to newcomer Thomas Robinson and Furkan Aldemire. Those two were Brown's choices for the first half again last night against the Sacramento Kings. But Nerlens Noel was getting little help in trying to stop the Kings' beast of a center, DeMarcus Cousins, who totaled 22 points and 15 rebounds in the first half, when the Kings scored 42 in the second quarter to build a 10-point lead.
