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.

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.

Here are three questions to ponder during the Sixers' stretch run to the end of the season, which includes 29 games: 1. Will either Jason Richardson or Joel Embiid play this season? The answer, I believe, for Embiid is simple, and it's no. The team didn't see a need to play Nerlens Noel for the last part of last season and probably won't do it with Embiid. Richardson really wants to prove to himself he can play and Brett Brown would play him if he's convinced he's healthy enough.

MIAMI - At 26 years old and with a bit of experience in the NBA, diminutive guard Ish Smith doesn't look to be a player who would fit in the 76ers' plans. Then again, the plan for right now isn't really clear, as the Sixers have suddenly gone from big guards to small, a suspect outside shooting team to one that now relies on it. Following a 4-year career at Wake Forest, Smith went undrafted in 2010 and has drifted through the NBA, with stops on seven teams before coming to the Sixers over the weekend.

Brett Brown did not hesitate Saturday when asked about the newest member of his backcourt, Isaiah Canaan. "He is our starting point guard," the coach said after practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. "Welcome to the Philadelphia 76ers in 2015. And I'm thrilled to do it. " The Sixers acquired Canaan, along with a second-round draft pick, from Houston at the trade deadline for K.J. McDaniels. The second-year player, who did not appear Friday night in the 106-95 loss to Indiana, averaged 6.2 points, 1.2 assists, and 14.8 minutes in 25 games this year.

Brett Brown will remember hearing about the Michael Carter-Williams trade for a long time. The head coach was in his office Thursday when Sam Hinkie walked in. Hinkie had a trade on the table that involved shipping out Carter-Williams, and the general manager believed the trade was a good move. "You take a deep breath and you listen and you make him repeat it," Brown said before Friday night's game. "You ask him to repeat it. 'Do you really think that this deal is going to move us forward?

FOR THE UMPTEENTH time, 76ers coach Brett Brown looked down at an unfamiliar bench, filled with newly acquired players. So it was no surprise that the once-again new-look Sixers struggled throughout the night and eventually dropped a 106-95 decision to the visiting Indiana Pacers on Friday night in the team's first game since unloading starting point guard Michael Carter-Williams and rookie K.J. McDaniels. Tim Frazier, who signed his second 10-day contract with the club Friday, was the starting point guard, and newly acquired JaVale McGee, brought in as part of a money-dumping deal from Denver, came off the bench not long after coming off a plane.

SURPRISINGLY, one guard might be entering into the rotation for 76ers coach Brett Brown. Also surprisingly, another might be out for some more time. Yesterday, in the team's first gathering following an 8-day break for the All-Star Game, injured veteran Jason Richardson ran his first five-on-five session in the hopes of returning after being out for almost two seasons because of a serious knee injury and subsequent surgery. But Michael Carter-Williams, who missed the three games before the break with a strained right big toe, sat out yesterday's practice as the pain remained.

BOSTON - When you are an elite athlete playing in the best league in the world, competition isn't very hard to find. For Jason Richardson, sidelined for 2 full years with a knee injury and subsequent surgery, the competition is now himself. Throughout the season, 76ers coach Brett Brown has talked of how much Richardson has meant to him, as a veteran around a painfully young team, sharing advice and as a soundboard for the coach. Now the talk of Richardson has changed from mentor to player.

BOSTON - He's 34 with a bad left knee. In basketball dog years that combination usually means closing in on rocking-chair time. But 76ers guard Jason Richardson, who's been sidelined since January 2013, makes it sound like this won't be his final season. "I still got a few years left," said Richardson, who is in the final year of his contract. "Two years off that helps your body. That's two years I'm not playing 90 games with the preseason games [included]. I think I have a few years left in me. " After the kneecap injury, Richardson suffered a stress fracture in his right foot in October while rehabilitating his left knee.
