IF THERE WAS anything we knew for certain about this 76ers season, it was that there would be plenty of uncertainty. Who would stay, who would go? Would there be major trades and/or minor ones? Yesterday, the team did some juggling with the roster, releasing center Kwame Brown and guard Darius Morris and then signing guards Elliot Williams and Lorenzo Brown. Morris, signed during the offseason, appeared in all 12 games he was with the team, averaging 6.9 points in 16 minutes a game as a backup guard.

BEFORE THE clock struck midnight last night, the Phillies had a bit of in-house business to take care of: Every major league team had to make additions to their 40-man roster in preparation for next month's Rule 5 draft. Outfielder Kelly Dugan (the Phillies' first pick in 2009, in the second round) and top catching prospect Tommy Joseph were added to the 40-man roster, along with outfielder Aaron Altherr and lefthander Rob Rasmussen. The roster shuffle prevents them from being plucked away by another team in the Rule 5 draft.

The Phillies protected four prospects from possible selection in next month's Rule 5 draft by adding them to the 40-man roster Wednesday. Outfielders Aaron Altherr and Kelly Dugan, catcher Tommy Joseph and lefthander Rob Rasmussen made the cut. Altherr, 22, and Dugan are both high-ceiling outfielders who started 2013 at single-A Clearwater. Dugan, 23, finished at double-A Reading. Both showed an improved power stroke, although each player still has a long path to the majors. Altherr was recently ranked as the organization's No. 9 prospect by Baseball America.

The Phillies officially began the process of filling their camp roster by inviting four players, including two who spent 2013 in their organization, to spring training. Lefthander Cesar Jimenez, who posted a 3.71 ERA in 19 games with the Phillies, is back. So is 24-year-old outfielder Leandro Castro, who played 117 games at triple-A Lehigh Valley and was signed by the Phillies in 2007. The additions are veteran righthander Shawn Camp and outfielder Clete Thomas. Camp, who turns 38 next week, limped to a 7.04 ERA in 23 innings with the Chicago Cubs.

By the start of the 1999 season, new Eagles coach Andy Reid had whittled the 60-or-so-man roster he was handed in January down to 24 remaining players. By the start of his second season, that number had been trimmed to 17 - about half of whom were part of a core that reached the playoffs in each of the next five seasons. But many players who were an integral part of the Eagles in the late 1990s - not exactly an era to remember - didn't make it that far as Reid discarded many pieces and built the team to his tastes.

THE COMMON theme is that this is going to be a long season for the 76ers, the coach, the equipment managers and the writers who cover them. More realistically, it's going to be a long few years. Rebuilding won't be complete after this season. It's going to take more time. But this season has to be played out first so here's a look at what to expect from the roster:   THADDEUS YOUNG Expect: Nothing out of the ordinary, which means 15 points and seven assists. He's a career 51-percent shooter, an average that will probably suffer this season as Young will find going inside extra-tough, with no other threats in the paint.

THE 76ERS ROSTER currently stands at 14 players, one below the league limit of 15. But a closer look at the assembled group shows a much, much smaller sample of what coach Brett Brown has to work with right now. The backcourt is pretty much set. Michael Carter-Williams and James Anderson are the starting backcourt, backed by Tony Wroten and Darius Morris, with Evan Turner able to contribute some minutes back there. Jason Richardson probably won't play this season after a devastating knee injury late last season.

BEING ABLE to make jump shots, defend, pass and get to the basket are all intangibles Sixers coach Brett Brown is looking for in his fringe players as he tries to make the decisions as to who will fill out his final roster. Being able to handle getting torched for 20 points, a lopsided loss and deal with teammates and coaches during what is sure to be a tough season is just as important, maybe more, to the head coach. In Monday's preseason game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Columbus, Ohio, Brown gave a strong indication as to what the rotation will look like.

Hollis Thompson is chasing an uncertain NBA dream. The forward, who spent last season in the NBA Development League, wants to at least leave a positive impression with the 76ers during his bid to make their 15-man roster. But the 6-foot-8, 206-pounder out of Georgetown is a long shot to make even this youthful and inexperienced team. It's hard to deny, however, that he is playing well. Thompson scored 13 points in 28 minutes over his last two games before Monday's preseason contest against the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center.

THE LAST TWO matches of World Cup qualification generally aren't times when a national team coach can relax. And United States coach Jürgen Klinsmann has emphasized to his players that tomorrow's CONCACAF Hexagonal match against Jamaica in Kansas City, Kan., and the final match at Panama on Tuesday are as important as any other qualifiers the USA has played. "We want to win these games," Klinsmann said recently. "We want to finish off the year on high note. "These games already count toward the World Cup in 2014 in terms of the internal competition and the mentality we are trying to build.
