JASON THOMPSON's stint with the 76ers lasted less than a month. The Lenape High, N.J., product, who was acquired on July 9 from Sacramento in the deal that netted the Sixers Nik Stauskas, was traded yesterday to the Golden State Warriors for forward Gerald Wallace, both teams announced. Thompson, 29, averaged 6.1 points and 6.5 rebounds in 24.6 minutes last season for the only NBA team he had ever played for. He was drafted by Sacramento with the 12th overall pick of the 2008 draft.

Jason Thompson's tenure as the homegrown 76er lasted 22 days. The Sixers traded the Camden native, who played at Lenape High School, to the Golden State Warriors Friday for Gerald Wallace and a 2016 NBA draft consideration. The Sixers have the right to swap the lesser of the first-round picks from the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder with Golden State's first-rounder. This transaction came after the Sixers officially acquired Thompson, Nik Stauskas and Carl Landry from the Sacramento Kings on July 10. However, the franchise had stated that it planned to keep Thompson this season when he was acquired.

NEW YORK - Jrue Holiday and Thaddeus Young were the only 76ers starters to attempt a free throw in Sunday's 95-92 loss at Brooklyn. That he didn't make at least one trip to the line, despite playing more than 30 minutes, left Lavoy Allen, who made his 18th start of the year, perplexed. "I don't know what I can do other than continue to stay aggressive," said Allen, who finished with 12 points and nine rebounds. "That's the mind-set of everyone in here. That's all we can do.

Before every NBA game, the officials meet with a player from each team. One of the things they do is pick the ball to use. The meeting probably never got more attention than it did last night before Minnesota's 102-96 win over the Bobcats in Charlotte, marking the return of the leather ball - an unprecedented midseason equipment change to appease players and coaches. The ball chosen? A newer-looking ball, more colorful than some of the more worn balls used in pregame warmups.

Vince Carter and the New Jersey Nets have the framework in place for a 4-year contract that guarantees the All-Star more than $60 million, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. Word of the deal came yesterday, though the person spoke on condition of anonymity because under league rules the agreement can not be announced until July 11, the first day free agents can sign. A day earlier the Nets announced Carter had opted out of the final year of a contract that would have paid him $16.3 million next season.

Gerald Wallace had 24 points and 20 rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats held the visiting New Jersey Nets without a point for more than 10 minutes, rallying for a 79-68 victory last night. The Nets' ineptitude allowed Charlotte to go on a 24-0 run bridging the third and fourth quarters, wiping out the Bobcats' poor offensive start. D.J. Augustin added 21 points. The Nets dropped to 0-4, thanks to a brutal stretch where they lost Yi Jianlian to a sprained right knee and went nearly 11 1/2 minutes without a field goal.

Gerald Wallace called it "poor management. " It irks coach Larry Brown, too. As the Charlotte Bobcats barely cling to playoff hopes, they loaded into plane yesterday to become the first NBA team in 12 years to close the season on a four-game road trip. Blame it on a horse-jumping show that has their home arena covered in dirt - and the NBA schedule maker. "That comes from upstairs from the organization, as much as you hate to say it," said Wallace, Charlotte's top scorer.

LeBron James is expected to wow crowds, not opponents. James stunned host Charlotte with three explosive dunks, including a windmill that broke the game open late in the second quarter that led Cleveland to a 106-89 victory last night over the Bobcats. Memories of Julius Erving stirred. "What this game reminded me of was when Doctor J came into the league. He'd make a couple of plays and everyone would stand around and watch," Charlotte coach Bernie Bickerstaff said of the Sixers Hall of Famer.

The 76ers are depleted, in more ways than one. On Wednesday night, the Sixers dressed nine players and looked beleaguered and inefficient in a 103-84 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. Because of injuries, the Sixers are running low on players. Because of that, and perhaps a few other factors - namely, the home stretch of a miserable season - they are also running low on points, defensive stops, and the ability to compete for a full 48 minutes. The Bobcats, led by Gerald Wallace's 24 points, improved to 39-35.

Kobe Bryant scored 29 points Wednesday night, making the Lower Merion graduate the youngest player in NBA history to score 30,000 and the fifth ever to eclipse that mark, as the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a two-game skid with a 103-87 win over the host New Orleans Hornets. Bryant entered the game needing only 13 points to eclipse the scoring milestone and did so with a short jumper late in the first half that was perhaps the least spectacular of his baskets, which included the usual array of soaring dunks, transition three-pointers, and turnaround, off-balance jumpers.

Much has changed since Episcopal Academy graduate Gerald Henderson and his Charlotte Bobcats lost to the host 76ers, 109-91, in their only meeting of the season, on Dec. 4. Henderson didn't play that game - he was still recovering from tendinitis in his knee - and former Sixers coach Larry Brown was still coaching the Bobcats. Now, Henderson is healthy, Paul Silas has replaced Brown, and the Bobcats are 6-4 under their new coach. They are also among the teams the Sixers will be battling for the seventh and eighth Eastern Conference playoff seeds.

The Chicago Bulls clinched the NBA's last unclaimed playoff spot last night, as Derrick Rose scored 27 points and Joakim Noah added 21 points and 13 rebounds in a 98-89 victory over the host Charlotte Bobcats. The Bulls closed the regular season with a three-game winning streak to beat out Toronto for the right to face Eastern Conference top seed Cleveland. Needing a win or a Raptors' loss to New York to get in, the Bulls quickly took it to the Bobcats, never trailing and leading by as many as 18 points.

Michael Jordan was known to play his best against the best. The team he now owns seems to fit that description, too. Hours after Jordan was approved as the first former player to be a majority owner of an NBA team, his Bobcats continued a remarkable string of success against the better teams in the NBA, rallying from 19 points down to beat Oklahoma City, 100-92, last night in Charlotte. Stephen Jackson scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half, Stephen Graham matched a career high with 19 points filling in for the injured Gerald Wallace, and the Bobcats sent poor-shooting Kevin Durant and the Thunder to only their fourth loss in 21 games.

Stephen Jackson added 13 points despite playing with a sore back for the sharp-shooting Bobcats, who held a comfortable lead over the final three quarters. The Pistons lost their fifth straight as they again had 52 points-a-game in street clothes, with Richard Hamilton (hamstring)
