The 76ers signed rookies Maurice Harkless and Arnett Moultrie on Tuesday. Harkless was the 15th overall pick in last month's NBA draft.

WHILE THE ACTIVITY on the free agent front has been mostly silent for the 76ers, assorted rookies and free agents and NBA hopefuls will be making a lot of noise in Central Florida beginning Thursday, leading up to next week's Orlando Pro Summer League. The team, led by this year's first-round pick St. John's forward Maurice Harkless, will conduct a minicamp at the University of Central Florida for 4 days before playing five games in 5 days at the Amway Center. The team's other first-round pickup, power forward Arnett Moultrie, will be sidelined.

The 76ers will open their Orlando Pro Summer League schedule on Monday with a 5 p.m. game against a team representing the Indiana Pacers. The league features a five-day schedule, from Monday through Friday, at the Orlando Magic's practice court at the Amway Center. Headlining the Sixers team will be Maurice Harkless, the 15th overall pick in the recent NBA draft. Harkless, the Sixers' first pick in the draft, was named Big East rookie of the year last season at St. John's after averaging 15.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks.

THE PHONES have been buzzing since free agency started at midnight on Saturday, and 76ers president Rod Thorn has been burning his ear talking and listening to people around the NBA. "We've been busy looking at what's available, what might be out there to help us," said Thorn, whose team selected swingman Maurice Harkless and acquired power forward/center Arnett Moultrie in the first round in Thursday's NBA draft. "There is no doubt that we have a big need for a shooter, and we'll be looking for that, but who knows what could happen?

Don't worry, be happy. Or, in the case of the 76ers, be positive. That was the mind-set of the Sixers as the days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into months without a winning streak until Saturday. Finally, the Sixers defeated the Sacramento Kings and strung together consecutive wins for the first time since they won three straight in the last week of November. "I think we kept a pretty positive outlook through the whole stretch, through what was a lowlight for the season," Sixers center Spencer Hawes said.

ORLANDO - The 76ers began the five-day, five-game Orlando Summer League with a 69-63 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night at the Amway Center. In typical summer-league fashion, both squads were sloppy from the onset and neither team developed any type of offensive rhythm. Rookie guard Jacob Pullen scored 15 points - including eight in the final 2 minutes, 5 seconds - and led a shortened Sixers rotation that used only nine players. "We just wanted to get a look at a handful of guys tonight," said Aaron McKie, the Sixers' assistant coach and summer-league head coach.

Already loaded with players at small forward, the 76ers added another on Tuesday, acquiring 26-year-old Dorell Wright from the Golden State Warriors for the NBA draft rights to 2006 second-round pick Edlin Bavcic, according to a league source. Wright, in the final year of a contract that will pay him $4.4 million, averaged 10.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game last season for the Warriors in 27 minutes per game. He joins a group of Sixers small forwards that includes Andre Iguodala and first-round pick Maurice Harkless.

ORLANDO - The shorthanded 76ers won their first game in the Orlando Pro Summer League on Wednesday, defeating the Brooklyn Nets, 79-71, at the Amway Center. The Sixers fell behind, 16-4, to start the game. But point guard Zack Rosen and forward Devin Searcy came off the bench to provide a spark with their hustle and savvy play. With the backups on the floor, the Sixers (1-2) took a 17-16 lead. The game remained close until the Sixers pulled away in the fourth quarter after a flurry of assists by Rosen.

The winter of the 76ers' discontent has perhaps hit its lowest point. They dropped their 12th consecutive game Wednesday night with a 101-90 loss to the struggling Orlando Magic at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers also went winless (0-11) in the month of February. The last time they went winless in a month was in March 1973 (0-13). "We're good, and life moves on," said coach Brett Brown, whose Sixers lost 22 of their last 25 games. "The locker room is good. We win together, and we lose together.

If Andrew Bynum never puts on a 76ers uniform, make no mistake about it, this will go down as one of the worst deals in the history of the NBA, a transaction that will have a ripple effect perhaps for years to come. When the Sixers traded for Bynum after a two-series run in the playoffs, no one expected that this team wouldn't be better adding the 7-footer. Fifty wins should have been a given. That kind of success would have let new and untested general manager Tony DiLeo off the hook and allowed him an easier transition into his position.

UNLIKE THE TEAMS in the NCAA Tournament, it could be none and done for Andrew Bynum as a 76er. The Sixers announced at halftime of Monday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers that the 7-foot, 300-pound Bynum will have surgery on Tuesday, thus ending one of the most frustrating situations in team history. Bynum, who has not played all season, will undergo arthroscopic surgery on both knees. It will be performed by Dr. David Altchek, of the Hospital of Special Surgery in New York.

Can it get any worse? That has to be the question after the 76ers had one of their worst showings in a season with no shortage of candidates. Facing an Orlando Magic team that had lost 17 of its previous 18 games and 10 straight on the road, the Sixers suffered a 98-84 defeat Tuesday night before a disbelieving crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. "Nobody takes this harder than I do and I am a guy when I have coached, I have always been able to find answers - and I have not been able to find answers," an introspective coach Doug Collins said afterward.

Because teams never like to publicly admit that a season is over before it really is, the 76ers shortly will suit up Andrew Bynum and send the 25-year-old center into battle. Fans have been breathlessly awaiting this moment since the Sixers acquired Bynum in August, and members of the media have been waiting for the first appearance of the player general manager Tony DiLeo last week referred to - still - as "Plan A. " But if Bynum is indeed still Plan A - and I have no doubt that he is - then, for the benefit of the team, no one needs to see him play this season.

Almost one year ago, Tony DiLeo left a conversation with 76ers principal owner Joshua Harris in which DiLeo, who has coached the team, headed up the scouting department and had been team president and general manager Rod Thorn's right-hand man in a 22-year career with the team, made it known that being the team's general manager was his ultimate goal. On Friday, the Sixers granted DiLeo's wish, promoting him from executive vice president of basketball operations to general manager.

LONDON - The Olympics, they say, can transform an athlete. Some arrive as unknowns and leave as household names. Some arrive with hype and high expectations and leave humbled and empty-handed. Andre Iguodala arrived in London as a 76er. He'll be leaving as a Denver Nugget. A few hours before taking the court for Team USA's semifinal victory over Argentina Friday night, Iguodala got the official word. The enormo-deal that had been rumored and reported for the previous 24 hours was official.
