The startling thing, still, about what Sam Hinkie did Thursday at the NBA trade deadline - his jettisoning Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels, his gutting the 76ers' roster once again for the sake of more draft picks - is not the trades themselves. Everyone should be used by now to these bold decisions from Hinkie, the Sixers' general manager. He has turned two trade deadlines and two draft nights into hours-long fever dreams for anyone who follows the team, and it's no small achievement to become the most interesting and polarizing sports executive in Philadelphia and the NBA - hell, maybe in all of sports at the moment - while so rarely speaking publicly.

The shaping of the 76ers took a mind-boggling turn Thursday. In a series of moves before the 3 p.m. trade deadline, the team parted with the reigning rookie of the year in point guard Michael Carter-Williams and standout rookie shooting guard K.J. McDaniels. In return, they acquired center JaVale McGee, point guard Isaiah Canaan, two protected first-round picks, a second-rounder, and the rights to an overseas player. Carter-Williams was shipped to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for a protectedtop-five draft pick from the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-team deal.

BEFORE THE Sixers were turned on their ear yesterday with the trades of Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels, the players went through a workout in preparation for the final 29 games of the season. Despite all the guarded anticipation of the trade deadline, coach Brett Brown was pleased with the way his team shoved all distracting thoughts off to the side. "They just had as good a practice as they've had all year," said Brown. "They are together. Everybody understands the awkwardness of today.

76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has made several eye-popping moves since he was hired in May 2013. What he'll do before the NBA trade deadline at 3 p.m. Thursday is an intriguing topic. With $19 million in salary-cap space and one roster spot available, Hinkie is in the market to acquire an expiring contract from a team looking to dump a salary. If the price is right, he'll also take unheralded players he believes can contribute in the team's system. The Sixers were involved in trade discussions with various teams Wednesday, but a source said there were no guarantees that anything would happen.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - I don't have a lot of words to say about any one thing, so I'm going to say a few words about a lot of things. 1.  We didn't learn anything new about Cole Hamels yesterday that we didn't already know. Throughout last season, you got a real sense that he, Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon would jump at the chance to pitch for a contender. It's why I've never bought the notion that a team will have to guarantee his fifth-year vesting option to get him to OK a trade.

INDIANAPOLIS - If Chip Kelly does in fact covet Marcus Mariota - and evidence suggests as much - then he will have to leapfrog a number of competitors for the Oregon quarterback in this year's draft. But are there really that many teams that could be contenders? If the Buccaneers select Mariota with the No. 1 overall pick, then all bets, of course, are off. If Tampa Bay takes Jameis Winston instead and the Titans choose Mariota with the next selection, then that, too, would nip the Eagles' chances in the bud. But what if Mariota slips past the first two teams?

PHEW. That sigh of relief you just heard was from Flyers fans, thankful to learn rookie general manager Ron Hextall will not be fooled by his team's recent 6-0-3 surge in the standings. The Flyers will not be "buyers" in 13 days at the NHL's March 2 trade deadline. "I'm impressed with our guys' resiliency, for sure, but we're not depending on other teams to lose," Hextall said yesterday. "Five points is still a good haul. It's not as easy a feat as it seems, but it's certainly plausible.

Coming off arguably the greatest 9-9 season in the history of major-league pitching, Cole Hamels edges toward the late prime of his career still anchored to a team that seems intent on repeating its mistakes. Can the Phillies ever get their timing right on when to hold on to a player and when to make the best deal possible and move on? The last several years should have served as proof that the team isn't very good at those decisions, and if Hamels isn't traded before the start of the regular season, the Phils will put themselves in danger of making their biggest mistake.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Flyers general manager Ron Hextall made it clear Thursday that he is not going to trade one of his younger players for a chance to slip into the playoffs this season. "If the right deal comes along for now and for the future, we'll make it. If it doesn't, obviously we won't," Hextall said in a conference call with reporters. "We'll do everything we can to get in the playoffs, short of selling off younger assets. But we have our vision for the future. We're not going to do anything short-term that's going to hurt us long-term.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said three weeks ago that if he were to handicap it, he envisioned Cole Hamels starting for the Phillies on opening day. The chances of that materializing increased Monday, when the Phillies lost one possible trade partner for their prized lefthander. Before they began the final week without baseball until November by agreeing to a deal with righthander James Shields, the San Diego Padres were one of the most speculated potential suitors for Hamels.
