Jack McMahon remembers scouting Roy Hinson in 1983 when Hinson was a springy-legged center at Rutgers. It just goes to show that McMahon, the 76ers' director of player personnel, has a pretty sharp memory. College centers who can't put the ball in the basket with regularity are easy to forget. "I remember him as a center with no offense," McMahon said yesterday. "At the time he was a center and we didn't need a center because we had Moses. I remember in my reports that I compared him to Harvey Catchings.

A rather intense conversation involving three 76ers fans stopped as two reporters passed them yesterday. The trio was standing just a few feet away from what they would have termed the scene of the crime, where the Sixers had announced a couple of hours before the NBA draft that they had made the following trades: Center Moses Malone, forward Terry Catledge and two first-round picks were traded to Washington for center Jeff Ruland and forward...

The first major aftershock of the restructuring of the 76ers arrived in yesterday's mail. A letter from attorney Norman Blass, addressed to former general manager Pat Williams, turned up in the Sixers' offices, asking for a renegotiation or extension of Roy Hinson's contract. The envelope also contained a copy of a similar letter from Blass to Cleveland Cavaliers president Thaxter Trafton. Interestingly, the Cavaliers had reworked Hinson's contract last September, signing him through the 1989-90 season at a cost of $2.1 million.

It was not unlike many days during the early part of last season. Practice was over and the 76ers, one by one, were leaving the dressing room. "Come on, Franchise," Charles Barkley said, signaling to a teammate that it was time to depart. Roy Hinson looked up, and he and Barkley left. In truth, if there is a "franchise" player on the team, it is Barkley, but he bestowed the nickname on Hinson last season to both tease and encourage his frontcourt colleague. At that time, Hinson was in the early stages of what became a lengthy bout with frustration, unrealized expectations and self-analysis.

The new Boston Strangler made his first appearance as a 76er yesterday. Roy Hinson, the 6-9 1/2 power forward acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Sixers' No. 1 pick in yesterday's NBA draft, had driven from his home in Princeton, N.J., to be introduced to the Philadelphia media. Speaking from behind a thicket of microphones and tape recorders at the Spectrum, the three- year veteran from Rutgers University grinned sheepishly at his audience and gave his primary reason for being pleased with the trade.

As a 21-year former resident of Philadelphia, and a life-long Philadelphia 76ers fan, I cannot believe what happened on June 17. The news was given to me in the middle of an office softball game - I popped out my next two times at bat! I am still in a state of disbelief. Moses Malone is gone, Terry Catledge is gone, three first-round draft picks are gone, and Jeff Ruland, Cliff Robinson and Roy Hinson are going to Philadelphia. Washington is laughing at Philadelphia, and with good reason.

The Battle of Broken Feet will not go away. The 76ers' Andrew Toney, who underwent surgery on his right foot during the summer, is out again, this time with a mild strain of the left foot suffered in yesterday morning's workout. He underwent X-rays yesterday at St. Joseph's Hospital in Lancaster and is scheduled to be examined again today at Temple University's sports medicine center. "He's going to be out for about seven days, but that can be revised tomorrow," general manager John Nash said after last night's final full-scale training camp scrimmage at Franklin & Marshall College.

Sixers forward Roy Hinson, who suffered a dislocation and bone protrusion of the little finger on his right hand last Saturday night, was examined yesterday by team doctors Michael Clancy and Ray Moyer. Hinson had the cast removed and replaced with a splint and was told he might be able to return within two weeks. "I wanted to play 82 games," Hinson said. "Being hurt is not one of the things I take too well. " Center Tim McCormick's injury is being called a dislocation of the left shoulder, rather than a separation.

The 76ers and the New Jersey Nets spent a full day at the bargaining table yesterday, discussing a multiplayer trade that so far has been more talk than action. The deal under consideration would involve center Tim McCormick and forward Roy Hinson of the Sixers and center Mike Gminski and forward Ben Coleman of the Nets. It now appears that the sticking point in the talks is Hinson. To acquire him, the Sixers sent the top pick in the 1986 NBA draft to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who selected center Brad Daugherty.

All the 76ers had to do on that June day in 1986 was use the first overall pick on the consensus best player available and they surely would have been back in the conversation as a championship contender for the next three or four years. All they had to do was select North Carolina's Brad Daugherty, a 7-foot center who would have guaranteed that the Sixers had an inside scoring and rebounding presence even when a sweat-soaked Moses Malone was seated on the bench. "Select Daugherty!"

TWENTY-FIVE years ago, give or take a few days, the 76ers' world pivoted violently. With all good intentions - isn't that always the way? - the franchise made two trades designed to secure the future. The moves were big and bold and when viewed both as a whole and individually, they made sense in the moment. The events, days in the discussing, were unveiled on the evening of the NBA's 1986 draft. Moses Malone, Terry Catledge and two first-round draft choices were traded to Washington for Jeff Ruland and Cliff Robinson.

To 76ers management, Shawn Bradley left town yesterday looking less like the tallest question mark of next week's NBA draft and more like a sturdy exclamation point. Team officials punctuated Bradley's two-day visit to Philadelphia by reiterating their intention to use the second overall draft pick to choose either Bradley or Michigan forward Chris Webber, whoever is available. "If we're unfortunate enough not to land Shawn Bradley, then we'll take Chris Webber," Sixers coach Fred Carter said yesterday.

June 16, 1986. It is to 76ers history what Oct. 29, 1929, the date of the great stock market crash, was to Wall Street. OK, some Philadelphia hoops scholars might not consider June 16, 1986, to be the darkest day since the Syracuse Nationals moved here before the 1963-64 season. Strong consideration must be given to July 9, 1968, when Wilt Chamberlain was given away to the Los Angeles Lakers for a grab bag of trinkets named Darrell Imhoff, Jerry Chambers and Archie Clark. What's preferable, anyway, falling off a tall building or being run over by a truck?

The 76ers will trade forward Jayson Williams to the New Jersey Nets today, according to sources in both organizations. That move, which apparently will cost the Nets a conditional draft pick, would help reduce the bloat on a Sixers roster crowded by 14 players holding guaranteed or partially guaranteed contracts. Williams, 24, has spent two undistinguished seasons with the Sixers, who acquired him in 1990 from Phoenix for a first-round draft pick. The Nets will, according to one source, give up a second-round pick for Williams, but that pick could become a first-rounder if Williams meets a minutes-played clause included in the deal.

Remember 1986? When Jeff Ruland and Roy Hinson were being projected as key pieces to the bright future of the radically restructured 76ers? Remember Cliff Robinson? The 6-9 forward was another one of the pieces to the puzzle. The Sixers sent Moses Malone, Terry Catledge and two first-round draft choices to Washington for Ruland and Robinson, and sent the No. 1 pick in the draft to Cleveland for Hinson. Ruland broke down, forced into retirement by a balky knee, only to make a miraculous comeback this season.

"I didn't dream about this," Armon Gilliam was saying the other day, the last man left in the 76ers' locker room after practice at St. Joseph's University. "I didn't think about it, didn't want it. " But Gilliam has it, a career in the NBA. A career that has included being the second pick in the draft in 1987, that has included being traded twice, from Phoenix to Charlotte, from Charlotte to the Sixers. All of that in four fast seasons, being examined under a microscope, people asking why the second pick in the draft already has been traded twice.

As Billy Owens grew from a skinny, talented kid toward basketball maturity, there was one player to whom he was always compared. Magic Johnson. "He was my idol, and people always said I played like him," said Owens, who led Carlisle High to two Pennsylvania state championships before pursuing a collegiate career at Syracuse. "We were both about the same size and could handle the ball. My dream was to play against him, and now I can't do that. " Owens met Johnson last year at the Spectrum, the day before Syracuse played Villanova.

It's over. In his heart, Roy Hinson knows it. In his right knee, he feels it. In his eighth season in the NBA, the 6-9 forward who spent 1 1/2 seasons with the 76ers knows it is his last. Hinson, who has had numerous surgical procedures done on his right knee, had the most recent arthroscopic work done about a month ago, and the news was not good. "They found more damage than they had the last time," he said last night, before the Nets turned back the Sixers, 98-95, in overtime.
