Jason Richardson hopes to extend his career as a member of the Atlanta Hawks. The 76ers free agent will sign a non-guaranteed deal with the Hawks on Monday. He was open to re-signing with the Sixers. The 34-year-old shooting guard looks to provide veteran leadership to one of the league's premier teams. He returned to the court Feb. 20 for the first time in more than two years after suffering a cartilage tear the size of a quarter on the right side of his left kneecap in January 2013.

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.

ORLANDO - Center JaVale McGee wants to remain with the 76ers for the rest of the season and beyond. The Sixers, at least for the time being, are committed to giving him every opportunity to do just that. "We are coming into this whole thing with an open mind," coach Brett Brown said Sunday after the team's morning shootaround at the Amway Center. "He is around a bunch of genuine people, coaches that care. That will give him every chance to keep moving and to be as good as he can be. "And if it doesn't work, it doesn't work.

Midseason trades require a multitude of adjustments for an NBA player. New teammates, new coaches and new philosophies must all be adapted to and mastered. And then there are those pesky pronouns. "A lot of things are different," Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Carter-Williams said Friday after a shootaround at Madison Square Garden. "The dynamic of the team is different. I think we have a few more vet guys than Philly does. It's just a different coaching staff. Not to say one is better than the other.

Jason Richardson is open to re-signing with the 76ers this summer. The 34-year-old envisions himself in a similar role to the one he had this season. He would mentor his young teammates, be a positive influence and receive some playing time - maybe just not as the starting shooting guard. "I don't have a problem coming back here," said Richardson, whose contract expires in June. "I like every guy in this locker room, believe it or not. . . . And I love coach Brett [Brown]. He's one of my favorite coaches of all time.

IF YOU WERE to look only at the amount of games Nerlens Noel played in his initial NBA season, it would seem to be a successful one. Coming in, after a season off following knee surgery, many thought the rail-thin center would be prone to injuries, especially with few big-bodied teammates around him. But there was so much more to the season put together by the 6-11, 216-pounder. He missed only seven games, including last night's finale against the Miami Heat, and he also seemed to grow stronger - and certainly better - as the season wore on. He finished with averages of 9.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.8 steals.

ISH SMITH wasn't really looking forward to the idea of having to go against 6-6 Michael Carter-Williams, who is at least a half foot taller. The fact that he had to do it with an aching groin, which kept him out of Saturday's game in Chicago, made matters even worse. But even if he could only go a little bit, he was going to play as hard as he could for as long as he could. That turned out to be 34 minutes, and Smith finished with four points and nine assists in the Sixers' loss to the Bucks last night.

IT IS KIND of ironic that when Michael Carter-Williams returns to Philadelphia tonight to face the team that he won the rookie of the year award with last season, the 76ers might not have a point guard available to play. Ish Smith, the team's only lead guard on the roster due to the season-ending foot injury to Isaiah Canaan, missed Saturday's game against Chicago with a groin strain and is a game-time decision against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks. What a difference a year makes.

IT LOOKS as if 76ers fans will have to wait a while longer to see Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid on the court together. No, Embiid hasn't suffered any type of setback from his recovering foot fracture. In fact, coach Brett Brown said before last night's game against the Washington Wizards that Embiid will start playing three-on-three and four-on-four within the next couple of weeks. The logical thought was that the two would pair at some point when the Sixers participate in two summer leagues this year in Utah and Las Vegas.

WHEN YOU ARE enduring the type of season the 76ers are, it isn't unusual for scratches and scrapes to be upgraded to lacerations and abrasions, or for minor twists to become sprains. The point is, key players' missing games isn't exactly frowned upon, since wins aren't the ultimate reward this season and losses aren't the worst thing in the world right now. Still, development trumps all else in coach Brett Brown's eyes, which is why Nerlens Noel, despite many bumps and bruises gathered throughout the season, has missed only four games this season.

NEW YORK - Both Knicks coach Derek Fisher and 76ers head man Brett Brown have plenty of reason to be very interested in the NCAA Tournament, which concludes tonight with the title game between Wisconsin and Duke. The Knicks, with the worst record in the NBA, are the favorites to land the top pick in June. The Sixers will also have a high pick, along with numerous other selections. But the two look at college games very differently. "It's hard to watch college basketball and know that a guy is going to be able to translate what he's doing there in the pros," said Fisher.

Jason Richardson is back on the shelf. The 76ers shooting guard missed the home game Monday against the Los Angeles Lakers with swelling and soreness in his left knee. Richardson, 34, said he expects to return in time for the game Wednesday against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center. However, coach Brett Brown said he could miss two games. Richardson returned to the court Feb. 20 for the first time in more than two years after suffering a cartilage tear the size of a quarter in the right side of his kneecap in January 2013.
