While 24-year-old Andrew Bynum wore sweatpants and a T-shirt during his introduction as a 76er on Wednesday at the National Constitution Center, 11-year veteran Jason Richardson struck a stark contrast. The fifth overall pick in the 2001 draft, Richardson looked the part of a 31-year-old, nattily attired in a dark blue sports coat, sans tie, and slacks. Richardson made it known that he intends to be anything but a throw-in player as part of the 12-player, four-team trade that brought Bynum and him to the Sixers last week.

Jason Richardson was in the starting lineup for the 76ers Friday against the Toronto Raptors at the Wells Fargo Center a day after getting his left knee drained. Richardson, who turns 32 on Sunday, has missed four games with a left ankle sprain and another with a lower-back strain. "It's been very rough on me," Richardson said following Friday morning's shootaround. "I am the kind of guy who prides himself on his health, playing through injuries, but this is basketball. " Richardson said this was the first time he ever had his knee drained.

Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday night that 76ers guard Jason Richardson would have surgery on his ailing left knee next week and miss the rest of the season. The team disputed the report. "No decision has been made at this time on surgery," said a Sixers spokesman, who said Richardson would see team doctors Thursday. Richardson missed his seventh game Wednesday with inflammation in his knee. He saw a specialist in New York that day. An 11-year veteran, Richardson averaged 10.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 33 games this season.

Not long after acquiring shooting guard Jason Richardson in the trade for Andrew Bynum, 76ers coach Doug Collins did a little bit of a background check on the 11-year veteran. Collins places high value on a player's character, so he turned to someone in the league, someone who knows Richardson well, and asked him what he thought of Richardson. That person was 17-year veteran Grant Hill, a former teammate of Richardson's when they played together in Phoenix. "Grant is one of the best people I know, in basketball and anywhere else," Collins said of Hill, a former college teammate of his son, Duke associate head coach Chris Collins.

THOUGH THE VISION for the 76ers' brass is focused years away, as evidenced by last week's draft from which their top two picks probably won't play for them this season, there still is the responsibility of fielding a team for this coming campaign. Seven players are on the payroll (Thaddeus Young, Jason Richardson, Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, Eric Maynor, Tony Wroten and Arnett Moultrie). Maynor already was bought out, and it wouldn't be surprising if Richardson, who is scheduled to make $6.6 million this season and is coming off major knee surgery, and Moultrie, who is to make $1.1 million but tested positive for marijuana last season and possessed a salty attitude, also are given deals to move on. The team also has options on guard Elliot Williams and center Jarvis Varnado, each for just under $1 million.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas' two big defensive plays probably didn't impress 100 million Chinese watching on TV. LeBron James, though, was blown away. Ilgauskas, Cleveland's 7-3 center, scored 14 points, added 12 rebounds and drew two offensive fouls as the Cavaliers clamped down defensively on visiting Memphis in last night's 89-70. "I can't remember the last time he took two charges in an entire season," James, who added 16 points, said of the lengthy Lithuanian. The game was telecast live in China, where James visited last summer and where his new sneaker line will be launched.

The good news for Andrew Bynum and the 76ers is that he incorporated full-speed sprints into his workouts. The bad news is that he was in pain. Bynum spent Saturday and Sunday working out harder than he has at any point during his recovery from bone bruises to both knees and cartilage damage in his left knee. "I got a lot of pain so we backed down a little today," Bynum said. Pain has always accompanied Bynum, who has ramped up his workouts in recent weeks. But on Monday he acknowledged that the pain might be the type that he will simply have to endure if he is going to return.

POOR Thaddeus Young. He will drive to Wells Fargo Center tonight to face the Mavericks, and, most likely, another 30-point loss. It will be just another lost night in a sea of wasted effort for Young, who is seeing the prime of his career further devalued by the machinations of men in suits who never dribble or shoot. He will be thinking, "Why couldn't it have been me?" Less valuable teammates Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen all were traded away at yesterday's deadline, part of a sell-off that now gives the Sixers as many as 10 picks in the next two drafts, including three first-rounders . . . and five players who will not be on the roster after the next two drafts.

BEFORE THE 76ers took the floor against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday, forward Arnett Moultrie sat slumped in front of his locker, looking very much like a teenager who had just had his cell phone taken away. When prodded, Moultrie proclaimed his disappointment at not being in uniform yet this season, despite the fact that he has been practicing with the team for a couple of weeks as he tries to return from preseason ankle surgery. He said conditioning was not a factor, but added that he didn't want to talk about it. Read into it what you will, but Moultrie was playing the next night - for the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers affiliate in the NBA Development League.

The 76ers gave up a protected first-round pick in a draft-day trade with the Miami Heat for Arnett Moultrie on June 28, 2012. Nowadays, they're unsure when the post player will return from a stint with their NBA Development League team, the Delaware 87ers. The Sixers shipped Moultrie to Delaware on Tuesday, one day after the former first-round pick had some choice words for the coaching staff. The 6-foot-10, 240-pound post player was upset that he hasn't yet played this season since practicing for the first time in late December after preseason ankle surgery.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The 76ers have established an identity. Win or lose, they're known for playing with energy, getting up and down the floor and going to the rim. "To come in and have the responsibility to try to build a culture and create a system and coach new guys and bring new guys in as a team, I'm proud of where we are at," first-year coach Brett Brown said. In the new year, the Sixers are winning, as well. On Wednesday night, they posted a 114-102 victory over Denver at the Pepsi Center.

Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum told reporters he would play against the 76ers Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The former Sixer said he would sit out Saturday's contest against Philadelphia in Cleveland. "I think they'll probably boo, but that's their choice," Bynum said of Sixers fans during Wednesday's shootaround in Milwaukee. "It wasn't my choice to get rid of me. I don't feel bad at all. . . . If I was not hurt, I would've played. That's really the end to that story.

THE 76ERS broke from their 5-day, eight-practice training camp yesterday at Saint Joseph's to embark on a 6-day Europe trip that will include a pair of games and a few practices. Watching players leave the locker room at Hagan Arena following the final workout, there was no denying a plethora of sore bodies were departing the gym. Spencer Hawes tweaked a knee and missed a couple of days, though he said he'll be ready to play in the team's first preseason game on Sunday in Bilbao, Spain, against a FIBA team.

Arnett Moultrie is back on the shelf. The 76ers power forward is not expected to play until 2014 after undergoing surgery Thursday to repair his left ankle. The 6-foot-10, 245-pounder was hurt while scrimmaging a couple of weeks ago. This isn't the first time Moultrie was hampered by an ankle injury. The second-year player missed the Orlando Summer League in 2012 after injuring his ankle during a predraft workout in Sacramento, Calif. Still plagued by the injury in last year's training camp, he was not in shape at the start of the season.

HOW FITTING for Doug Collins to draw upon Shakespeare in his final, melodramatic performance as Sixers head coach. A surprise playoff contender in his first two seasons, Collins ended Act III of his tenure by exiting stage left,where he will sit, for 5 years, now the power behind the throne. Collins will advise Josh Harris for $2 million, half of what he was going to make as coach next season. And thus, the production loses its star. Since his arrival, Collins, a former No. 1 overall pick of the franchise, has been center stage, the team's marquee draw.
