Former Camden High star Dajuan Wagner worked out for the Memphis Grizzlies and said he wants to stay in the city that was his college home for one season at the University of Memphis. "That's what everybody wants. My family. Me. Everybody," he said. "This is home. So it would be great to play here. " The Grizzlies own the fourth pick in the June 26 draft. Several mock drafts have projected Wagner as high as the third pick and as low as the seventh pick. Leon Rose, Wagner's agent, said his client would work out for at least six teams before the draft.

They did not want to be the first. For that matter, who would? So for the 76ers on Wednesday night, fatigue was not a factor. There was no way they were going to lose to the winless Memphis Grizzlies. "It's definitely in your mind coming into the game, you know," Keith Van Horn said after the Sixers survived a scare to beat the Grizzlies, 95-88. "It was on my mind. It's almost like a fear not to be the first team to lose to a team that's been struggling like this. " Luckily for the Sixers, they weren't.

Joel Embiid was on the court Monday, doing what 76ers coach Brett Brown called "basic stuff. " But just the sight of the 7-foot center sinking corner threes and midrange shots during a workout had to be a break from the reality of coaching a 1-28 team for the third-year coach. "We love seeing him as much as we can," Brown said of Embiid, who's usually on a different workout schedule than his teammates. "This just happens to be one of these times were he can get rehab in and be a part of us. But it's good to see him. " By now, Sixers fans know the Embiid has yet to play after being selected third overall in the 2014 draft.

Hubie Brown has retired as coach of the Memphis Grizzlies due to health reasons. "Unexpected health-related issues will not allow me to continue coaching the Memphis Grizzlies," Brown, 71, said in a statement yesterday.

"This is an extremely sad day for me," West said in a statement. "This franchise is by far better from the leadership and guidance of Hubie Brown, and we will be forever grateful to Hubie.

The remaking of the 76ers continues. The team on Thursday acquired Tony Wroten from the Memphis Grizzlies for a protected second-round pick. The pick is based on where the Sixers, who are expected to struggle, finish in the NBA standings. As a result, they basically surrendered nothing for Wroten, a 2012 first-round selection. "Just want to say thank you to ALL the Memphis Grizzlies fans, coaches, etc.," Wroten tweeted Thursday. "I love the city of Memphis. Will always have love for you guys.

MEMPHIS - The 76ers extended one futility record and tied another Sunday. Yes, it was a normal game-day experience for them. The only difference was their opponent was the Memphis Grizzlies in this 92-84 loss at FedExForum. It was the Sixers' 28th straight loss dating to March 27, extending the U.S. professional sports record they set in Friday's defeat at Houston. They also lost their 18th consecutive game to start the season, tying the league record set by the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets.

Michael Beasley griped about some calls, tumbled after missing layups, then shook his head in disappointment after a rebound bounced off his outstretched hands. After his first summer league game drew raves, Beasley looked like a rookie in his second. One day after scoring 28 points in his much-hyped debut, Beasley returned to earth yesterday, finishing with only nine points in Miami's 90-81 summer league win over New Jersey in Orlando. The second overall pick in last month's draft was a mere mortal, missing all but one of his 13 shots from the field and collecting nearly as many fouls (seven; there's no automatic disqualification in summer league)

ONE MINUTE, seven seconds into the fourth quarter against the visiting Memphis Grizzlies, the 76ers had two turnovers, used two timeouts and hadn't scored a point. That was a microcosm of a game that featured them turning the ball over 28 times and allowing yet another opponent to coast to victory, this time by 104-90. The Grizzlies have been up and down of late, having won only two of their last six. The Sixers, of course, have just been down, as Tuesday's setback was their 11th straight loss and dropped them to 1-29.

This may not mean much, especially because it doesn't change the team's embarrassing reality. But the 76ers, who had looked lackluster in recent setbacks, played with some grit early Tuesday night. As a result, they gave the Memphis Grizzlies a contest for a half. Again, it may not mean a thing, because the Sixers were still the same turnover-prone squad we've become accustomed to. The defeat extended their losing streak to 11 games. This time, it was a 104-90 decision at the Wells Fargo Center.

MEMPHIS - A normal NBA team would come away from an 0-6 road trip angry, depressed and frantically searching for answers. The 76ers are coming off theirs almost giddy. Despite suffering an 18th consecutive loss to open the season in Sunday's 92-84 setback to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Sixers are quite happy with the trip that included owning leads in the fourth quarter in the final five games. Sunday, at the FedEx Forum, the Grizzlies used a 16-2 run late in the fourth quarter to seal consecutive loss No. 28 going back to last season for the Sixers, in a game that included 53 turnovers (27 by the Sixers)

MEMPHIS - There was no fourth-quarter collapse against the Memphis Grizzlies this time. The 76ers' rematch on Saturday night was all but decided by then. The Grizzlies put the 76ers away in the second quarter en route to posting a 101-83 decision at the FedEx Forum. It was a sharp contrast to the teams' meeting on Dec. 13. Back then, the Sixers blew an 18-point, fourth-quarter advantage en route to an overtime setback at the Wells Fargo Center. It can be argued that the Grizzlies (31-12)

Tony Wroten was benched for the last 5 minutes, 18 seconds of regulation and the overtime Saturday in a 76ers loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. He said the move did not influence his performance Monday against the Boston Celtics. Whatever the reason, the usually aggressive Wroten was passive and a nonfactor in a 105-87 loss to Boston. "I'm just trying to find my niche," Wroten said after he attempted just three shots in nearly 30 minutes. ". . . I'm not trying to do anything over what I am supposed to do. So I've just got to continue to try to find my way and hopefully things come together.

SOME THINGS are just too hard to overcome. In a season that already encompasses a 17-game losing streak and a loss by 53 points, the 76ers may have suffered their most debilitating defeat on Saturday at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies when they blew an 18-point lead with less than 8 minutes to play. As much as players and coaches will talk about moving on, the hangover from Saturday seemed evident in last night's listless effort against the struggling Boston Celtics as the Sixers dropped their fourth straight, 105-87.

MEMPHIS - It was just the 76ers' way. In a homecoming for several team members, the Sixers were unable to sustain their effort throughout the game. The Memphis Grizzlies, meanwhile, basically did whatever they wanted. Marc Gasol finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds, handing the Sixers a 117-95 loss at FedExForum on Friday night. This outcome was expected given the teams' circumstances. The Sixers' tank job of a season has been well-documented. This latest setback dropped them to 17-62.

Tony Wroten wants to bring energy and a fast tempo to the 76ers. "I came from a team that almost went to the finals," said the second-year guard who was acquired Aug. 22 in a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies. "So I've seen the hard work that you have to put in and the dedication. " That hard work, energy, and tempo were on display during Monday's practice at St. Joseph's Hagan Arena. The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder was a step quicker than every other Sixer. He made crisp passes and converted transition baskets during the end-of-practice scrimmage.
