Kwame Brown, Jason Richardson, Arnett Moultrie and Nayal "Mac" Koswhel also didn't make the trip. Maybe someone should have informed the NBA that Brown wasn't going to make the trip. He is one of four Sixers being promoted here for Sunday's game. A banner of the 6-11, 290-pounder hangs right outside of the arena's entrance in the BEC. Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes are the others being promoted. Philadelphia Inquirer

Remember that high ankle sprain that Sixers rookie Arnett Moultrie suffered while working out for NBA teams prior to the draft? The one that had the 6-11 Moultrie hobbling around when he was introduced to the city a few months back? Turns out that the healing process has actually been a little bit slower than expected this summer. Moultrie came out of his walking boot in July, nearly two months ago, but he hasn’t been able to play five-on-five all summer long. Moultrie also missed games at the Orlando summer league for rookies and free agents. However, the Sixers are not overly concerned about this. I spoke with president Rod Thorn about this briefly on Thursday and he said that he expects Moultrie to get up to speed during training camp, which begins Oct. 2. “We’ll have some concerns about his conditioning, the usual things,” Thorn said, “but I think he’s going to be fine.” Philadelphia Inquirer
