Arnett Moultrie was at 76ers practice on Monday afternoon, finishing the two-hour session with a light rebounding drill. It proved to be the last action of his tumultuous Sixers career. Moultrie, 23, was traded to the New York Knicks later in the day for a 2019 second-round pick and Travis Outlaw. Both Outlaw and Moultrie were immediately waived by their new teams. The move creates salary-cap space for the Knicks as Moultrie is due to make almost $2 million less this season than Outlaw.

Union CEO and operating partner Nick Sakiewicz has become a lightning rod for criticism of a team that missed the Major League Soccer playoffs for the fourth time in its five-year existence. Sakiewicz has heard the criticism loud and clear, both at games and in cyberspace. He discounts the common perception that he has called the personnel shots for a Union team that was eliminated from the playoffs with two games remaining. The Union finished 10-12-12 for 42 points - seven points out of the fifth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Eagles safety Nate Allen took responsibility Sunday for the error in coverage on the 75-yard touchdown that decided a 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Before the game, Pro Football Talk reported that the Eagles were trying to upgrade Allen's spot at safety with the trade deadline approaching Tuesday. Eagles coach Chip Kelly denied that report and pledged support of Allen, while downplaying the idea that the Eagles will be active at the deadline. "A lot of times, the people who float that are the people who want their safeties picked up," Kelly said Monday.

The Los Angeles Kings felt they were getting close to a championship and needed a veteran or two to put them over the top. The Flyers wanted to get younger and faster. And, so, the teams pulled the trigger on a blockbuster 2011 deal that sent captain Mike Richards to the Kings for Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn, and a second-round draft pick that the Flyers later dealt for Nick Grossmann. Ron Hextall, now the Flyers' general manager, was the Kings' assistant GM at the time, and he remembers vividly why the deal was attractive from Los Angeles' perspective.

Marquis Teague needed an opportunity to show that he can contribute in the NBA. The 76ers needed to look at another point guard. Both sides will get a chance. The Sixers acquired Teague and a 2019 second-round draft pick from the Brooklyn Nets on Friday for Casper Ware. The Sixers are the third NBA team for the 6-foot-1, 189-pounder since January. The move will save money and create a roster spot for the Nets, who are expected to waive Ware. Brooklyn would have owed Teague his guaranteed $1.1 million salary if they cut him. He has a $2 million team option for the 2015-16 season.

A trade show that had planned to move its annual event to Atlantic City, after bad experiences in 2012 and 2013 at the Convention Center, has reconsidered and will return to Philadelphia in August, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau and the center said Thursday.

WASHINGTON - The latest rumor barely rolled off a reporter's tongue and Ron Hextall grinned, albeit only for a second. "I'm not going to talk about trades," Hextall said. "But I will give you one other piece of advice: Don't believe everything you read. " The rumor, from TSN's Bob McKenzie, said Hextall is actively shopping a defenseman - particularly Luke Schenn or Nick Grossmann - in order to open up a space in the lineup for 2013 first-round pick Samuel Morin. Hextall wasn't happy.

TRENTON - The Democratic and Republican nominees for Congress in New Jersey's Third District agree on a number of issues important to South Jersey voters, such as recovering from Hurricane Sandy and investing in Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. So, to draw a contrast in a competitive race that has drawn national interest, Democrat Aimee Belgard and Republican Tom MacArthur each tried to send one clear message to voters during their first joint appearance Friday in an NJTV interview: Don't trust my opponent.

It's difficult to imagine Cody Parkey as an Eagle if it weren't for the relationship between Howie Roseman and Ryan Grigson. Former Eagles colleagues and frequent trade partners, the two general managers on Aug. 20 had just placed rookies on waivers who would have filled holes on each other's teams. The Eagles needed a kicker, and the Colts had just cut Parkey. The Colts needed a running back, and the Eagles had just released David Fluellen. Realizing the mutual interest, Roseman and Grigson worked out a straight-up deal before Parkey and Fluellen officially went on waivers.
