SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Brett Brown anointed Kendall Marshall the 76ers starting point guard on Dec. 16. At the time, the coach said the job was Marshall's to lose. His status as the starter lasted eight days. The Sixers reacquired Ish Smith in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans for two second-round picks on Dec. 24. So Marshall went from a starter to someone who played just four minutes in Monday's setback at the Utah Jazz. But instead of sulking, the 6-foot-4, 200-pounder is putting in extra time before practice to be able to contribute in any way. "It's not easy," Marshall said of losing his job. "But it's part of being a professional.

THE 76ERS are close to signing free-agent guard Kendall Marshall to a multiyear contract, Yahoo Sports reported. The deal would fully guarantee his salary for the 2015-16 season, sources told the website. Marshall has been rehabilitating a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Chapel Hill, N.C., the past few months and worked out in Philadelphia this week. Marshall is expected to be able to play sometime during the first half of the season, NBA sources said. Marshall, 24, tore his ACL on Jan. 15 with the Milwaukee Bucks and has surgery in early February.

'LET'S GO. Let's go. Push it. " During his 241-game reign so far as head coach of the 76ers, coach Brett Brown has shouted those words to his players thousands of times. From the day he was hired in August of 2013, that is the style Brown felt would give his team its best chance to compete. He might be shouting those same words to management come the end of the season. Brown has won just 46 of those 241 games, and has never been given a roster with a chance to succeed. It is understandable if Brown's words to management this offseason are the same as they have been to his players: "Let's go. Let's go. Push it. " Because, quite frankly, this third year of The Process has been a complete waste.

SO IN the past few days, Brett Brown has seen the front office shaken to its core, as Jerry Colangelo was brought in help The Process move forward, whether that be in a quicker way or in a totally different direction. That's really not something the coach can concern himself with right now, as his plate is fuller than someone's at a free buffet. Jahlil Okafor has been struggling on the court of late - when he's not serving two-game suspensions or battling an upper respiratory infection - as his off-the-court problems seem to have affected his game.

The father of North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall said Monday his son is recovering from surgery on his broken right wrist and it's unclear if he'll return for the NCAA regional games in St. Louis. Dennis Marshall said the procedure done in Chapel Hill, N.C., to insert a screw into his son's wrist lasted about 35 minutes. He said when Kendall plays again would be based on "what would be best for Kendall in the long term" and that he didn't know whether the sophomore would be ready to play in the round of 16 against Ohio on Friday.

Nerlens Noel is expected to return to the 76ers lineup Friday night against the Thunder in Oklahoma City. The 76ers power forward missed his second straight game Wednesday against Toronto because of sore wrists. "He tried to go today," Sixers coach Brett Brown said after Noel tried to participate in the morning shootaround. "He just couldn't hold the ball, and it's the padding of his hand. It just wasn't worth it. . . . So we hope to get ahead of the story and sit him now and reap the benefit of that with more of a complement of a team on the Oklahoma-San Antonio trip.

THERE WAS A TIME during this already long season in which the 76ers had trouble doing anything well in the third quarter. They've struggled all season at the end of games, particularly when they get some kind of lead in the second half of the fourth quarter. Now they are adding to their repertoire. Going into Friday's game with the visiting Detroit Pistons, the Sixers had scored only 17 and 13 points in the first quarters of their previous two games. With Kendall Marshall making his debut at point guard to begin Friday's game, things didn't change all that much.

MIAMI - Perhaps the biggest question surrounding the 76ers is: When will Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel return? "I don't really know," coach Brett Brown said of his injured post players. Okafor missed his fourth straight game Sunday as the Sixers lost, 103-98, to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. The rookie bruised his right shin on Feb. 28. Noel missed his second straight game with a bruised right knee. The center was hurt late in the second quarter Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets.

The Delaware 87ers are taking a look at Baron Davis. The former NBA all-star point guard signed and practiced with the 76ers' NBA Development League affiliate on Wednesday. Davis, 36, is expected to play for the Sevens on Friday in a home game against Iowa. Davis has not played since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, and patellar tendon in his right knee as a New York Knick in 2012. The two-time NBA all-star, who signed with the D-League in January, has been working on his fitness in an attempt to make a comeback.

CLEVELAND – Jahlil Okafor knows life in the NBA is going to get harder. The 76ers rookie center made things look easy on the offensive end, scoring 20.3 points per game through the first four games. "The more I play, the more teams see me play, the more they start scouting my tendencies," said Okafor, following an early morning shootaround at Quicken Loans Arena for Friday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. "So I'm just trying to take into account that I have gotten some pretty good games, but I know the scouting is going to get harder," he added.

T.J. McConnell is starting to get a better understanding of the NBA's tempo. The 76ers point guard understands "who needs the ball, what play should be called, defensive rotations and on-ball, pick-and-roll defense," coach Brett Brown said. "You hear me talk about Jahlil [Okafor] being in 30, 40, or whatever pick-and-rolls a game. NBA point guards are the same, constantly in pick-and-rolls. "He's developed in a big way there. " The 6-foot-2 rookie has settled in nicely as Ish Smith's backup.

The 76ers swear they're far from the lackluster bunch that was pummeled by the Boston Celtics on Sunday. And they say they are determined to show that Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns at Wells Fargo Center. "I'd be very surprised if you see anything that reflects last night tomorrow," coach Brett Brown said Monday after practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Time will tell. But the Sixers (6-39) were dominated in just about every category in the 112-92 home setback to the Celtics.

BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. - The phone calls usually are placed in the morning, or sometimes late at night, when Timothy John McConnell is finished with a game, sitting at his locker, or riding the team bus, with a desire to hear the familiar voice of the man who in some ways gave him everything. Or gave him, at least, the most important things: confidence, passion, and direction. The 76ers point guard, who is known to most as T.J., credits his discovery of those things to his relationship with Tim McConnell, his father and coach at Chartiers Valley High School.

PHOENIX - A journeyman NBA player, Ish Smith will tell you that nothing about the business surprises him. So he wasn't shocked when his contract negotiations went nowhere with the 76ers last summer despite his being a key player on the team late last season. "Everything happens for a reason," said Smith, who was reacquired by the Sixers on Thursday in exchange for two second-round draft picks in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans. To make room, the Sixers waived point guard Tony Wroten.
