The 76ers may not have traded Larry Hughes yet, but it certainly appears as if they're still trying to. An NBA source confirmed last night that the Sixers placed another call yesterday to the Toronto Raptors to see if they were willing to part with swingman Tracy McGrady and a No. 1 pick for Hughes. Again, the Raptors said no. Despite wanting Hughes, the Raptors reportedly believe that they can get more than Hughes for McGrady if they bide their time. McGrady, 20 and scheduled to become a free agent this summer, no longer desires to stay with the Raptors.

Larry Brown, the Sixers' coach and head of basketball operations, is contemplating a trade that would send Larry Hughes, the second-year guard, to the Toronto Raptors for guard-forward Tracy McGrady and a first-round draft pick. League sources said that Brown, fed up with Hughes' play - mostly on defense - had hardened his stance on moving the guard out of Philadelphia and began talks with Toronto about a week ago. The Raptors offered McGrady for Hughes straight up, an offer the Sixers rejected.

IF BEN Franklin had had his way, the Washington Redskins would be hosting the Philadelphia Turkeys on this upcoming NFL "Monday Night Football. " Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, not the eagle. How appropriate. Wayne E. Williams, Camden Yo, NBA stars! I am very upset about the U.S. basketball team ending its perfect streak in international play. The rest of the world is catching up with us, and we cannot sit back and watch it happen. I hope this is a wakeup call to those players in the NBA who should be representing our country rather than making excuses why they cannot.

The NBA trade deadline remains more than a month away, but the 76ers seem to be intensifying their attempts to make a trade. The buzz last night had the Sixers and the Orlando Magic talking about a prospective trade that would involve the Sixers' Larry Hughes and the Magic's Corey Maggette. There also was speculation the Sixers have talked to the New York Knicks about a deal that could involve John Wallace. That comes on the heels of word the Sixers contacted the Toronto Raptors earlier, again inquiring about the availability of forward Tracy McGrady.

A blockbuster trade involving Tracy McGrady of the Orlando Magic and Steve Francis of the Houston Rockets dominated the NBA rumor mill yesterday. ESPN reported on its Web site that a McGrady-Francis deal would be made, provided that none of the other key players in the trade were selected in today's expansion draft by the Charlotte Bobcats. The trade would send Juwan Howard to Houston with McGrady, while Orlando would get Francis, Cuttino Mobley and Kelvin Cato. For salary-cap reasons, Tyronn Lue would also go to Houston in the trade, according to ESPN.

Brooklyn, N.Y.-reared basketball greats, including 76ers ambassador of basketball World B. Free and Connie Hawkins, joined real estate developer Bruce Ratner yesterday to support his bid to buy the New Jersey Nets and move them across the Hudson and East rivers. "Brooklyn Nets! Let's go!" said Free, who grew up in Brooklyn's Brownsville neighborhood before going on to a 13-season NBA career, including four with the Sixers. Ratner, the developer of Brooklyn's 16-acre MetroTech Center, heads one of three investment groups that filed bids last week to buy the Nets from YankeeNets, the conglomerate that owns them.

Allen Iverson finally found a situation that could whip him one-on-one. When the 76ers star visited survivors of Hurricane Katrina in Houston, his heart was touched. He met a man who lost all his worldly possessions in the hurricane. Youngsters whose lives have been turned upside down by Katrina's destruction wanted nothing more than to meet the six-time NBA all-star. While many only see the fierce NBA persona of Iverson, there is a sensitive, reflective side, one that was clearly evident as he spoke to reporters last night at the Wachovia Center.

LeBrilliant - except for the result. LeBron James played like no other 18-year-old ever had in his professional debut, but the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers lost, 106-92, last night to the Sacramento Kings. James had 25 points, nine assists, six rebounds and four steals. His point total was by far the most by any prep-to-pro rookie since Kobe Bryant made the jump in 1996, eclipsing the 10 points scored by Indiana's Jonathan Bender in his 1999 debut and Phoenix's Amare Stoudemire last season.

One recent morning, a couple of dozen basketball players gathered inside a converted Happy Harry's warehouse in Newark, Del. They'd paid $255 to $300 at the door - for the opportunity to try out for a hoop tour of Germany and Luxembourg. The tryout at the Delaware Sportsplex was a first step on a ladder. The late August foreign tour could be looked at as another tryout, a hope that maybe an overseas professional team would see usable skills and offer its own tryout. "It's kind of like AAU, sort of like overseas AAU, to give guys exposure to get an opportunity to get a contract," said Jon Solomon of Horsham, in charge of the tour.

NEW SIXERS president of basketball operations and general manager Sam Hinkie said yesterday that he likes "smart risks," likes to "push the chips to the middle of the table in a big way" if he sees "something where you can find an edge. " Sixers owner Josh Harris repeated again yesterday, several times in fact, that despite the train wreck of a season created by last summer's Andrew Bynum deal, he would do it all over again. Hinkie said that he liked that about Josh, that it swayed him in accepting Harris' offer to leave the Houston Rockets for the Sixers.

CARMELO ANTHONY scored 25 points in his return to the lineup, Landry Fields added 16 of his 18 in a flawless first half, and the New York Knicks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 113-86 victory over the visiting Detroit Pistons last night. Tyson Chandler had 17 points and Amare Stoudemire 15 for the Knicks, whose slumbering offense awoke in just their second victory in 11 games. They shot 60 percent from the field - amazingly, the first time they bettered 50 percent all season - and fell just a point short of matching their highest-scoring effort.

Joe Johnson scored 21 points, Tracy McGrady hit a pair of big three-pointers in the fourth quarter, and the Atlanta Hawks ended Miami's perfect start by beating the Heat, 100-92, on Monday night in Miami. McGrady and Al Horford each scored 16 for the Hawks (4-1), who opened the final period on a 15-3 run to take control. And McGrady made perhaps the two biggest plays of the night in the final minutes, first throwing a lob to Josh Smith for a dunk, then hitting a three-pointer that gave the Hawks a 93-84 lead with 2 minutes, 26 seconds left.

While the New York Knicks maneuvered to land Tyson Chandler, and the Los Angeles Clippers finagled a deal to land Chris Paul and team him with Blake Griffin, the 76ers - drum roll, please - re-signed Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes. The Sixers have chosen to stand pat, bringing back 12 players from a playoff team that improved by 14 wins over the previous season. In a city that has seen the football and baseball teams dominate free agency in recent seasons - with mixed and varying results - the Sixers' philosophy under president Rod Thorn and coach Doug Collins is to maximize the in-house talent and see where it leads.

All Pistons coach John Kuester could do before last night's game against the 76ers was smile, plead ignorance and move on. Earlier in the day, five of his players missed the team's shootaround and two others arrived late.

Tayshaun Prince, Tracy McGrady, Richard Hamilton, Chris Wilcox and Ben Wallace were not present for the 11 a.m. shootaround at the Wells Fargo Center.
