FOR THE FIRST time since 1996, the Sixers will be making the opening pick of the NBA draft when they tab their selection on Thursday. This was part of former general manager Sam Hinkie's plan, but now it is being overseen by Bryan Colangelo, who was brought in as president of basketball operations in April - shortly after Hinkie resigned his post amid speculation his role was going to be diminished. Colangelo, who turned 51 earlier this month, will be commanding his 19th draft; he was the general manager in Phoenix for 11 seasons and held the same role for the Toronto Raptors for another seven.

On the day he turned 40, Steve Nash of the Los Angeles Lakers had high praise for one of the young up-and-coming fellow point guards, 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams. The two point guards met for the first time during Friday's game between the Sixers and Lakers at the Wells Fargo Center. "He has been a terrific rookie and exciting for the league," Nash said about Carter-Williams, following the Lakers morning shootaround. "It's exciting for us old guys to see young guys coming into the league and doing so well and bringing something new to the game.

There are some who won't allow themselves to admit this, and it's understandable. The sudden resignation of Sam Hinkie as the 76ers' general manager and president of basketball operations Wednesday evening is too fresh in their minds. So those who have supported Hinkie's extended plan of tanking and acquiring assets are upset that he didn't (or chose not to) get a chance to see things through. They're also upset that the person who will replace him is Bryan Colangelo, the son of the Sixers' chairman of basketball operations, Jerry Colangelo.

Nash just kicking it in Suns win Steve Nash had 23 points, 13 assists, and 7 rebounds as the Phoenix Suns surged to a 108-99 victory over the host Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. Nash's performance came after a trip home to British Columbia on Saturday to bang a drum in the stands for the inaugural game of the MLS team he partly owns, the Vancouver Whitecaps (whose next stop is Chester's PPL Park for the Union's home opener on March 26). Phoenix played without guard Aaron Brooks, who served a one-game suspension for hitting an official in the leg with the ball on Friday.

THERE'S NO telling how different the Washington Wizards would be if they had drafted Ricky Rubio when they had the chance. The winless team couldn't be any worse than it is now. Rubio and Kevin Love controlled the game in the 93-72 win for the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves yesterday, while the Wizards were showered with boos during a 12-point fourth quarter as they dropped to 0-8.

THE PHOENIX SUNS are again shooting down Steve Nash trade rumors. Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby emphatically said that the two-time league MVP isn't going anywhere, and he added center Marcin Gortat to the untouchable list. In an email yesterday, he repeated the statement he made earlier in the day to the Arizona Republic , saying, "We are not trading Marcin Gortat, period. End of sentence. We are not trading Steve Nash, period, exclamation point. " The latest denial came after ESPN reported that the Suns were in talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves over trading Nash for the No. 2 pick in today's draft.

PHOENIX - Steve Nash might be one of the most entertaining players to watch in the NBA - or used to be - but last night, it was the 76ers who provided all the entertainment as they thoroughly outplayed the aging Suns and posted their first win of the season with a 103-83 victory at U.S. Airways Center. After an Opening Night loss in Portland on Monday, coach Doug Collins and many of his players talked of correctible mistakes, the biggest area of concern being turnovers, after 20 of them against the Trail Blazers led to 28 points.

The suggestion made 76ers coach Jim O'Brien cringe. Given that the Phoenix Suns play basketball at warp speed, would the Sixers alter their usual strategy and try to slow things down in an attempt to keep the Suns away from their favorite tempo? "We're not a slow-down team," O'Brien said yesterday at the Sixers' shoot-around. "We don't really have a plan of attack where we're going to slow it down. " The Suns entered last night's game against the Sixers averaging 110.6 points, tops in the league, and 16.4 points higher than last season.

PHOENIX POINT guard Steve Nash took a shot Thursday, and it wasn't on the basketball court. "I definitely do want to win," the 38-year-old Nash said on the "Dan Patrick Show. " "I'm not going to come back to the Suns if there isn't an improvement. If they're not ambitious and they're not looking to upgrade the roster seriously. And I think they are. "They'll have a lot of flexibility in free agency. I think I've been standing pat so they could do some things this summer.

At the time, James Bell suggested on Twitter, it was just saying the right thing in the moment, a few polite words. Walking off the court after Connecticut had taken Villanova out of the NCAA tournament, the 'Nova senior said to UConn guard Shabazz Napier, "Win it all. " Late Monday night, Bell tweeted out, "I'm fine with losing to them now cuz they did !! !!" UConn, of course, also took out St. Joseph's in overtime before beating Villanova, after trailing both by double digits.

It's been a few decades since the 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers have both had losing seasons in the same year. This streak is about to end for these two former marquee NBA franchises that are scrambling for the better lottery position. In a game that lacked the usual luster, the Lakers defeated the Sixers, 112-98, Friday night before 15,211 at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the fifth consecutive loss for the Sixers, the seventh straight at home, and second straight win for the Lakers.

It looks like Dwight Howard's desire to play for the Brooklyn Nets will go unrequited. While Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said Wednesday that trade talks with Brooklyn involving the all-star center are "stationary," several reports surfaced saying the Nets had broken off discussions. They then re-signed their own center, Brook Lopez, to a four-year contract. Howard, who has one year left on his contract with the Magic, has requested a trade and said he will only sign an extension with the Nets.

BRANDON JENNINGS scored 31 points, including three three-pointers in a critical stretch of the fourth quarter, and Milwaukee beat visiting Miami, 105-97, last night for the Bucks' second win over the Heat this season. Jennings also had eight assists while Drew Gooden added 17 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks, who have won three straight. LeBron James scored a season-high 40 points, including a highlight-reel windmill dunk at the end of his huge first quarter. James had 24 points in the first quarter, the most points any player has scored in a quarter this season, according to STATS LLC. Dwyane Wade added 23 points for the Heat, but it wasn't enough to beat a Bucks team that also recently knocked off the Los Angeles Lakers.
