The 76ers' losing streak is intact. They suffered a 115-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night, extending their skid to 18 games. The Kings (23-42) were supposed to be a beatable opponent for the Sixers, still winless since Jan. 29 and losers of 28 of 31. Sacramento came into the contest with a three-game losing streak. This game also marked the Kings' fourth contest in six days. Instead, the setback at Wells Fargo Center moved the Sixers closer to the franchise-record 20 straight defeats rung up by the infamous 1972-73 squad.

DANNY GRANGER, we hardly knew you. In a move that surprised no one, the 76ers announced yesterday that they had bought out the remaining contract of Granger, acquired from the Indiana Pacers at last Thursday's trade deadline. Granger and Indiana's second-round pick in 2015, via Golden State, came here in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Hampered by knee injuries and with an expiring contract after this season, Granger appears to have strongly suggested to the Sixers that not playing here was in his best interest.

Danny Granger got his wish. The 76ers negotiated a buyout of what's left of the forward's expiring contract on Wednesday, six days after he was acquired in a trade with the Indiana Pacers. Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie wouldn't disclose the buyout amount. Granger, however, was slated to receive around $4 million for the rest of the season. Assuming he clears waivers by 5 p.m. Friday, the 6-foot-9, 228-pounder can sign with a team of his choice. He is reportedly looking at championship contenders: the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls, and San Antonio Spurs.

WELL, THAT'S just great. Danny Granger didn't blink, and Sixers president/general manager Sam Hinkie acquiesced to a buyout with the wingman they acquired from the Indiana Pacers for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Granger got what he wanted and presumably will sign with a team that has a shot at competing in the 2014 NBA Finals before hitting the market as an unrestricted free agent. This is a business. Doing Granger a favor is not what Hinkie was hired for. The Sixers had one minimal asset with Granger, his Larry Bird rights.

Danny Granger's status with the 76ers could be resolved on Tuesday. That's when the franchise may announce whether or not the 6-foot-9 forward, who was acquired in Thursday's trade with the Indiana Pacers, will remain with the team. Granger wants to play for an NBA championship contender, according to sources. And there's a belief the Sixers will negotiate a buyout of what's left of his expiring contract (about $4 million) to accommodate the former all-star. He must be on a postseason-bound team's roster by Saturday in order play in the playoffs.

THE CHESS GAME continues, or so it appears. Acquired in a trade at last Thursday's deadline, former Indiana Pacers swingman Danny Granger has yet to put on a 76ers uniform and it is unclear if he ever will. The holdup appears to be several things. Granger, who has battled knee problems that have drained him of his star status in the league, might rather play elsewhere; say, for a team contending for a championship. In order for that to happen, the Sixers would have to buy out the remainder of his $14 million contract.

The tricky thing about the 76ers' moves before Thursday's trade deadline is finding a proper way to define them and assess them. They got rid of Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, and Lavoy Allen. In exchange, the Sixers received five players - one was Earl Clark, whom they cut hours later - and six second-round picks in a series of moves. But is this a cause for fans to celebrate? Everyone knew the Sixers were looking for first-round picks and expiring contracts for Turner and Hawes.

STRIP IT DOWN and build it back up. That is the plan, in a nutshell, put together by 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie. After Thursday's activity at the trade deadline, the team looks as though a tornado came through, leaving only a few leftover pieces with which to build. And after things are reassessed following this season, perhaps those few remaining pieces could be disregarded, as well. Hinkie's hyperactive day produced six second-round draft picks, five new players (one of whom was waived yesterday)

Forward Thaddeus Young tried valiantly, but couldn't mask his disappointment. As the 76ers head to the top of lottery, Young acted like somebody who lost out on the Powerball jackpot after expecting to cash in. This was the first day after the 76ers roster was gutted for a series of nondescript players and a bundle of second-round picks. And now the 25-year-old Young, the only remaining Sixer from their last playoff team - all the way back in 2011-12 - was putting up a brave front.

The reshaping of the Sixers took a dramatic turn Thursday. The team parted ways with starters and faces-of-the-franchise Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes, plus reserve Lavoy Allen, while acquiring three expiring contracts and five second-round picks in a series of moves before Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline. Turner and Allen were shipped to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Danny Granger, who has an expiring contract, and a 2015 second-round pick. The Sixers also traded center Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers for forward Earl Clark, center Henry Sims, and two 2014 second-round draft picks - one from Cleveland and the other from the Memphis Grizzlies.
