This was awkward, even painful. Here was 76ers assistant coach Aaron McKie putting Willie Green through a workout at the team's practice site yesterday morning, knowing Green was within minutes of being officially traded. "And I couldn't tell him," McKie was saying yesterday, after Green and Jason Smith had been dealt to New Orleans for veteran forward Darius Songaila and rookie big man Craig Brackins.

Worse, McKie and the other players in the gym were there when coach Doug Collins came in to tell Green and explain it to the other players in the gym. "That was heartbreaking," McKie said, "because Willie had his 10-year-old son, Ross, with him, and Ross just walked off the court crying. I told him he'd always be family, and Willie explained it to him, but that was tough." Philadelphia Daily News
