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.

BOSTON - With a roster that is ever-changing and a future outlook that is mysterious, to say the least, it is always a good time to revisit the players who are now on the 76ers and who the keepers may be. Nerlens Noel's recent play and growth throughout the season has been the most pleasant story line. He is proving to be a true defensive presence, has found some comfort at the offensive end and seems to be a very interesting piece when Joel Embiid makes his way into the lineup.

ORLANDO - 76ers coach Brett Brown was asked Sunday when his team will fill out its roster. "I think in the next few days," he said. Brown gave the impression whoever that player is, he will be a welcome addition. The Sixers have 14 players, one fewer than the limit for NBA rosters. The coach said general manager Sam Hinkie will pick the addition to the roster. A team source said that former Sixer Malcolm Thomas is among the candidates. The power forward was waived on Nov. 10. At the time, he had to have knee surgery that sidelined him four weeks.

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.

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.

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.

AS FAR AS losses go, this one actually wasn't so bad for the 76ers, in the grand scheme of things. While coach Brett Brown and the players don't want to hear the talk of jockeying for draft position, the 113-111 overtime loss to the visiting Los Angeles Lakers benefited the Sixers in a couple of ways. They dropped to 18-57 on the season, keeping them planted with the third-worst record in the NBA. The third-worst team has a 15.6 percent chance of earning the top pick in the draft lottery.

LOS ANGELES - Brett Brown was asked Sunday how he has grown as a coach since he took over the 76ers in August 2014. "I don't really know," he said. "What I do know is we held onto something firm that we believe in and we fight for it every day. " By now, most NBA fans realize that the Sixers have been sacrificing wins for the last two seasons to secure solid draft picks. Through it all, Brown has endured record-tying losing streaks and coached a revolving door of players.

STAN VAN GUNDY knows 76ers guard Jason Richardson pretty well after coaching him for two seasons with the Orlando Magic. He got an appreciation for Richardson then and it has only grown over the years. Like many, Van Gundy is amazed the 34 year-old Richardson has bounced back after missing 2 years due to injury and surgeries to his knee. "I called him from time to time over the last couple of years just to see what he was doing," said Van Gundy. "He's one of my favorites. He's a great, great pro, a great worker, a great person and a tremendous guy to coach.

The 76ers hosted the family of slain Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Wilson III for Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons at the Wells Fargo Center. Shooting guard Jason Richardson gave Wilson's older son, Quahmier, a tour of the locker room and took him to meet coach Brett Brown in his office. The 10-year-old received one of Richardson's No. 23 jerseys and a pair of Nerlens Noel's Nike sneakers. One-year-old Robert Wilson IV and other family members watched the Sixers' pregame on-court workouts from the team's bench.
