Representatives of eight of the NBA's sorriest teams and the far-from-sad Chicago Bulls dug into commissioner David Stern's large, plexiglass container hoping to reach out and touch part of a sunnier future. History says some did, some didn't. History also says that Gregg Lukenbill, managing general partner of the Sacramento Kings, had done his homework when he included his franchise among the fortunate. It was no small coincidence that he did so just minutes after Stern tore open the envelope containing the runner-up Los Angeles Clippers' team logo yesterday, thus leaving the Kings with the No. 1 selection in the June 27 draft.

BOSTON - Six weeks ago, Tyreke Evans was the go-to guy on a young Sacramento Kings team. Six weeks ago, as his coach put it, he was "a 20-point" per-game player. Six weeks ago, the swingman was finally getting into a rhythm at his new position. Six weeks ago, Evans suffered a left knee injury. Just as his game finally began to click in a way it hadn't since 2009, just when he began to understand his role, his left knee flared up. Evans returned to the Kings lineup at the beginning of this month but the injury has lingered, and without his usual burst Evans' game hasn't been as efficient.

The Sacramento Kings plan to trade forwards Jason Thompson and Carl Landry to the 76ers in a salary-dumping move, Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday night, citing league sources. The Kings would include guard Nik Stauskas in the deal, according to the website.

The Miami Heat's latest spurt might have run the host Milwaukee Bucks right out of the playoffs. LeBron James scored seven of his 22 points at the end of the third quarter Thursday night as the Heat pulled away from the Bucks. Their 104-91 victory gave them a three-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven series.   Bulls slip past Nets Carlos Boozer had 22 points and 16 rebounds, Luol Deng added 21 points and 10 boards, and the Bulls held off the Brooklyn Nets, 79-76, in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series in Chicago to take a lead of two games to one.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - It takes a lot to distract Lavoy Allen. But the 76ers forward/center, a Temple graduate, said he took time out of his preparation for Sunday's game with the Sacramento Kings to watch the Owls go down to Indiana in the NCAA East Regional. Temple lost, 58-52. "I watched it, and I was rooting for my guys," Allen said. "But I have been focused on getting ready to play the Sacramento Kings today. " The Hoosiers closed with a 10-0 run. "They almost had them, yeah," Allen said of the Owls.

Several 76ers are excited that former NBA players Chuck Hayes and John Lucas III recently met with coach Brett Brown as the team possibly looks to add much-needed veteran leadership. "I think that will be good for us to have any type of veterans," Nerlens Noel said. "I think [general manager] Sam [Hinkie] is looking into that a little more. . . . You know Chuck Hayes is a big man and I think it's going to help us. " Tony Wroten would also welcome the additions. "We are just trying to do whatever we can to help the team get better and better in the future and the present.

TORONTO - One of the 76ers' cornerstones has an idea about what the team should do in free agency. Post player Nerlens Noel wants the Sixers to re-sign point guard Ish Smith. Noel expressed that during the NBA All-Star Weekend. "He has to come back," Noel said. "He has to. He's an important piece to this and why we are so playing so well these past couple of months. And he's helped us at the point guard position, you know, just setting guys up in the post position. "So he's got to come back.

WHEN YOU look at the 76ers in the future - and really, that's the only sane way to look at them - wouldn't the vision be clear if it included a young big man who is one of the best in the league and a star point guard who can do just about everything? Sprinkle around that a terrific three-point shooter, a proven scorer and a rookie center with above-average defensive skills and thoughts of playoffs and 50-win seasons begin to materialize. Careful what you wish for. The Sacramento Kings entered the Wells Fargo Center Wednesday with all of the above.

The 76ers suffered another fourth-quarter meltdown. This time, it came against the dysfunctional and seemingly uninspired Sacramento Kings. Leading by 11 points in the fourth quarter, the Sixers went on to lose, 114-110, Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the final game before the all-star break for both teams. This setback had to hurt the Sixers (8-45), who were without power forward Nerlens Noel. "Coach [Brett] Brown kept saying, 'Don't let them keep hanging around.

After giving him the impression that he would a part of their plans, the Sixers chose not to re-sign him in the offseason. So he signed a free-agent deal with the Sacramento Kings on July 14. Two days later, the Kings voided his contract after he failed a physical. The 6-foot-8, 230-pounder later filed a grievance against Sacramento and was awarded a settlement.

Brett Brown would probably disagree. A victory Sunday against the Boston Celtics would provide a confidence boost for his 76ers. It would also serve as validation of their improvement from the start of the season. Here's why: A win against the Celtics (23-21) would finally give the Sixers (6-38) a victory against a team with a winning record. But . . . "I don't even sort of position it like that," Brown said of the benefits of a win. "We lost to the Chicago Bulls in overtime.

Jerry Colangelo will be recognized for saving the 76ers if everything goes right. But what about Sam Hinkie? What will the Sixers general manager be remembered for? Hinkie has drawn his share of criticism for the way he ran the team before Colangelo was introduced as the chairman of basketball operations on Dec. 7. Since then, it's become obvious that Colangelo is the one making all of the major decisions. As a result, some around the league question how much power Hinkie has. So how will he be viewed if this rebuilding process pans out?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The 76ers love it. They love that they have been playing better. They love that Ish Smith is back as their point guard. They love that opposing teams are once against saying it's hard to match their energy and effort. So as reporters descended on their locker room after their second win in three games, a game in which they frustrated the host Sacramento Kings, the Sixers displayed a glow that has only been present recently. "We've got a different Vibe," JaKarr Sampson said Wednesday night after a 110-105 victory at Sleep Train Arena.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - It was a small-ball lineup role reversal Wednesday night for Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. Noel started at center against the Sacramento Kings and Okafor, the normal starting center, came off the bench in the 76ers' 110-105 victory at Sleep Train Arena. The win improved the visitors to 3-31 on the season. But they are delighted that it's their second win in three games after riding a 12-game losing streak. Noel had this third consecutive solid performance while starting at center.

SALT LAKE CITY - With straight faces, Nik Stauskas and Carl Landry said they did not have any hard feelings toward the Sacramento Kings. It would be understandable and perhaps even a little bit more believable if they said otherwise. Stauskas and Landry are 76ers for one reason: The Kings gave up them. The Western Conference team basically wrote off Stauskas as a solid NBA talent less than a year after selecting him eighth overall in the 2014 NBA draft. And Sacramento sent Landry away so the team could free up salary-cap space to lure free agents.
