Question: Is this an important trade deadline for the Sixers? Bob Cooney When you've gone 45-172 and have just hired Jerry Colangelo as chairman of basketball operations, every draft, every expedition into free agency and every trade possibility is of utmost importance. But that doesn't necessarily include Thursday's trade deadline. Unless Colangelo and Sam Hinkie are able to pull off some kind of steal that lands them a player who can help in the future and not cost many of the assets Hinkie has accumulated, it is highly unlikely that any move will be of significance.

The New Jersey Devils and the Dallas Stars swung a four-player deal just before yesterday's NHL trade deadline, capping a day in which 17 trades were completed. In all, 35 players were involved. Dallas sent Joe Nieuwendyk and Jamie Langenbrunner to New Jersey for Jason Arnott, Randy McKay, and a first-round draft pick. Boston made three trades, as did the NHL's worst team, Atlanta. Columbus made two. Pittsburgh sent Darius Kasparaitis to Colorado; the New York Rangers acquired Tom Poti and Rem Murray from Edmonton for Mike York; the Montreal Canadiens ended their search for a backup goalie by acquiring Stephane Fiset from the Los Angeles Kings; and the New York Islanders picked up defenseman Darren Van Impe from the Florida Panthers.

INDIANAPOLIS - Over the past week, as today's trade deadline crept closer, 76ers president Rod Thorn has been pestered repeatedly by reporters as to whether his team would be an active participant. Usually his answer has been the same, saying that nothing major appears to be on the horizon. Speaking with Thorn yesterday afternoon, it was pretty much the same, although he did seem to get into a little more detail that makes you think the Sixers might do something before today ends.

If the statistics are any indication, the Eagles didn't have a lot of confidence in their depleted running backs corps yesterday. With Duce Staley missing the first game of his career because of a foot injury, the Eagles ran the ball only 18 times, with the tailbacks getting only 11 carries. The Eagles finished with 79 yards and a 4.4 yards-per-carry average yesterday, but 43 of those yards came from quarterback Donovan McNabb. Now, with Staley out indefinitely and possibly for the season, the Eagles are in a little bit of a jam. The NFL trade deadline is tomorrow at 4 p.m. Coach Andy Reid said he and Tom Modrak, director of football operations, would look at the game film and decide whether additional help was needed.

Who's left to audition for Phillies manager Jim Fregosi in the last two months of the season? Which prospects does he still have questions about? The none-too-surprising answer is nobody. That's why as tomorrow's trades-without-waivers deadline approaches, virtually all Phillies veterans, particularly Terry Mulholland and Benito Santiago, are considered to be available for the right prospects. Other than soon-to-be-promoted third baseman Scott Rolen, the cupboard is bare of players who could help next season.

The 76ers, who weren't especially eager to make a deal before last night's NBA trade deadline, walked away without making one. Did they come close? Sort of. A source close to the situation indicated that the Sixers shopped guard David Wingate, but were unable to drum up any interest. Wingate is currently on the injured list, recovering from soreness in both knees and is believed to have visited a doctor in the Baltimore area. Sixers general manager John Nash would not address a rumor that Wingate had fallen into disfavor with owner Harold Katz.

NEW YORK - If Ruben Amaro Jr. was still on the fence about being a buyer or seller, then Trade Deadline Eve should have helped sway the thinking of the Phillies general manager. Amaro's problem: No general manager in baseball history has ever been able to trade his entire team in one day, and club president David Montgomery and his silent partners probably are willing to eat some of those beefy contracts, but they'd never be willing to swallow the entire $180 million cow. So instead, Amaro hopped on the team charter after the Phillies' latest embarrassing effort - a mind-numbing, 11-2 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field - and headed for Washington, where this wretched season will continue Thursday night after the 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline has passed.

Make no mistake. New 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has made several eye-popping moves since being hired in May. And what he'll do before the NBA trade deadline at 3 p.m. Thursday will be another defining moment in his short tenure in Philadelphia. The former Houston Rockets executive wants first-round picks in exchange for Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, and Thaddeus Young. That could be a major problem. Turner and Hawes are in the final seasons of their contracts. Young has another season left, followed by a player option in 2015-16.

The weakest division in the NBA suddenly looks a little stronger, with Antoine Walker back on the Celtics and Chris Webber with the Sixers. The NBA trade deadline passed yesterday with a total of 11 deals involving 35 players being agreed to in the final 24 hours before the cutoff. Baron Davis was traded from New Orleans to Golden State for Speedy Claxton and Dale Davis, Keith Van Horn went from Milwaukee to Dallas for Calvin Booth and Alan Henderson, and Houston acquired several veterans to add to the league's oldest roster.

As the 76ers finished their game-day shoot-around yesterday, the KeyArena clock read 12 noon, the NBA trade deadline on the West Coast. Amazingly, no one disappeared. Allen Iverson was still a Sixer. So was Aaron McKie. Ditto Eric Snow. Billy King, the Sixers' president and general manager, had feverishly worked the phones over much of the last month. He had fielded several calls in the last two days inquiring as to Iverson's availability in light of the all-star guard's rift with interim coach Chris Ford.

Jeremy Hellickson had to work through his 18th start with the Phillies on Wednesday afternoon, pitching into trouble, pitching out, fighting with his location, always trying to make a great delivery from the stretch. It isn't an easy way to pitch, but being a starter for the Phils can be trying in many ways. Hellickson needed 92 pitches to scuffle through six innings. He gave the team a chance to win, however, which is just about all manager Pete Mackanin can ask of his staff. Hellickson left trailing by a run, but the Phillies tied the game, and then later won it with a pair of home runs to beat the Braves, 4-3, and win their third straight series.

The calendar flips to July on Friday, which means the countdown to baseball's trade deadline has begun. During Ruben Amaro's seven-year reign as Phillies general manager, it was almost always a fascinating time of year. One year it was Cliff Lee coming in from Cleveland at the trade deadline, the next it was Roy Oswalt from Houston to fill the vacancy left by the offseason trade that sent Lee to Seattle. At the 2011 deadline, Amaro acquired Hunter Pence in a four-for-one deal that filled the right-field vacancy created by Jayson Werth's free-agent departure to Washington and Domonic Brown's inability to live up to his top-prospect status.

APPARENTLY, swimming upstream is only exhausting if you're not making headway. In the Flyers' case, they're moving right along. In fact, the further upstream they travel from playoff irrelevance to the playoff fringes, the stronger they get. If they make it to their goal, they can turn round and use the current to push them through the playoffs. "If a team has been in this situation for 20-plus games, like us, where we've have the water right here," said defenseman Mark Streit, his hand at his neck, "it helps.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall wants to make the playoffs this season, but he is also building the team for the long haul, so he would like to add some more draft picks. That's the quandary he faces with the trade deadline fast approaching Monday at 3 p.m. "I really don't know," Hextall said the other day when asked about the odds of the Flyers making a deal. "Kind of listening to everything. " Hextall said the Flyers were in a "tough spot" because they are in a playoff race but don't want to trade away youth (or draft picks)

Veteran defensemen Mark Streit and Nick Schultz will both be happy if the trade deadline at 3 p.m. Monday passes and they are still with the Flyers. General manager Ron Hextall is expected to be in seller's mode as he continues his rebuilding efforts by stocking up on draft pick. Streit and Schultz will be attractive to playoff teams. "I don't really pay attention to the rumors. It's part of the business," said Streit, who would be valuable to a contender like Tampa Bay because he can quarterback a power play.

The 76ers were prepared to make major changes to their roster to get the point guard they covet at Thursday's NBA trade deadline. The team offered a packages that included shooting guard Nik Stauskas, point guard Ish Smith, and a 2016 first-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Dennis Schroder, according to several league sources. The Sixers also considered adding a player with an expiring contract, the sources say. Former Sixer JaKarr Sampson was said to be player with the expiring contract in the deal.

DALLAS - The three-team trade the 76ers struck last week is stuck in a holding pattern. It was supposed to be finalized Sunday. But the Sixers, Detroit Pistons and Houston Rockets agreed to a 24-hour extension that pushes the deadline back to 6 p.m. Monday. The problem is that Donatas Motiejunas, who went to Detroit from Houston, has back issues and has not been cleared to play. If he's unable to pass the physical, the trade could be voided. On Thursday, the Sixers acquired center Joel Anthony and a 2017 second-round draft pick in the deal.

It was 2:55 a.m. in Houston when Ish Smith first heard the following three words directed toward him: You've been traded . It was 2010, and Smith, a rookie with the Houston Rockets, was in bed when his cell phone rang. He and veteran Shane Battier were being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. "That was the first time I realized it was real," the 76ers point guard said Wednesday after practice. "I was like, 'Oh, [I'm not] going to be in Houston for the rest of my career.

Now that the calendar has flipped to February, aside from that little football game to be played Sunday in Santa Clara, the sports landscape is tilting, at least locally, toward Feb. 18 and the mystery about what, if anything, the 76ers will do with the upcoming NBA trade deadline. It has been a momentous pivot point for the franchise on each of the previous two deadlines during the tenure of general manager Sam Hinkie, and there's no reason to think the Sixers will sit this one out. The question is whether the trade deadline will remain a means of stockpiling assets for the future or whether it will be a way to speed the process toward a more immediate payoff.
