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.

MIAMI - Jason Richardson is amazed that he's back on the floor with the 76ers. "Two major surgeries. A foot fracture," he said. "I didn't think I was going to play basketball ever again. " Yet, the 34-year-old is doing just that. Richardson returned to the court Friday 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. And he was handed his old spot, as the starting shooting guard.

The big chill Monday inside the Wells Fargo Center was caused by the building's ice hockey configuration. The cold reality was provided by the return of the 76ers, the city's professional basketball franchise that wants you and its roster of NBA neophytes to believe it is building for a better tomorrow. Year Two of the Sixers' Get-Better-By-Being-Bad Plan - it's more commonly known as the Tank Initiative - officially kicked off with media day, where talk about the future could be perceived in entirely different ways.

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.

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.

WHEN THINGS aren't going well for Jason Richardson on the basketball court, he doesn't need anyone to tell him. No one is more critical of his game than the 34-year-old himself. Well, except for his two sons. Richardson tells the story of a few years ago, when he was slumping a bit while playing in Orlando. His son told Richardson he was "chillin' like a popsicle," just standing in the corner waiting for the basketball. No doubt, Richardson was hearing from his boys recently. In the four games prior to Wednesday's win over Detroit, the 14-year vet had shot just 6-for-37 from the floor and totaled 12 points.

The 76ers can increase the likelihood that they will have a successful future with one simple move: General manager Sam Hinkie must re-sign Jason Richardson to a one- or two-year deal. I'm not saying that the 34-year-old should retain his starting shooting-guard spot. Instead, the Sixers (14-49) need to give that to a draft pick or someone younger than Richardson to see if that person fits into their long-term plans. But Richardson needs to stay. Now that the 6-foot-6, 225-pounder is healthy again, his work ethic alone will make the Sixers a harder-working team.

It was another solid opportunity for the 76ers to snap a losing streak. The Atlanta Hawks came to town minus three starters in Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, and DeMarre Carroll. Those three players combine to average 41.1 points for the NBA's top team. The Sixers took advantage, winning by 92-84 Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The victory improved the Sixers to 14-49 and snapped their four-game losing streak. Meanwhile, the Hawks (49-13) lost for the first time in seven games.

OKLAHOMA CITY - Another opponent, another model for coach Brett Brown. In the Oklahoma City Thunder, Brown sees an organization he wants his team to emulate. One that has used drafts, free agency and trades wisely to become one of the perennial powers in the rugged Western Conference. Eight of the players on the current roster were gotten by draft, six by trade and one through free agency. Much of the roster that faced the 76ers last night at Chesapeake Energy Arena was gotten just as recently as the trade deadline.

OKLAHOMA CITY - The 76ers came close to ruining Russell Westbrook's ballyhooed return. Isaiah Canaan had an epic performance. Jason Richardson found the fountain of youth. And the no-quit Sixers overcame their miscues and shooting droughts. But the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to escape with a 123-118 overtime victory Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Westbrook finished with a career-high 49 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists to record his fourth straight triple-double.

TWO INJURIES and the release of a player meant 76ers coach Brett Brown had only 10 players at his disposal last night against the visiting and struggling Toronto Raptors. The team had released JaVale McGee, and both Robert Covington (elbow) and Jason Richardson (wrist) were sidelined after getting hurt in Indiana on Sunday. Though the Raptors were riding a five-game losing streak and were playing without All-Star guard Kyle Lowry (rest), they had a lot more firepower than the Sixers in earning a 114-103 win to improve to 38-22.

THE LAST time the Toronto Raptors and Kyle Lowry came to town, it was one of Lowry's most memorable couple of days. The day before facing the 76ers, and while surrounded by his family and teammates at his Philadelphia home, the Cardinal Dougherty and Villanova product learned that he was going to be a starter in the All-Star Game. He then went out the next night and scored 17 fourth-quarter points to lead the Raptors to a comeback win. Last night, in his return to his hometown, Lowry was on the bench in a red shirt and sport jacket, sitting out his second straight game.
