The Sixers walked away with an 89-80 win over the Kings on Friday night, their first set of back-to-back victories since Nov. 30 (see story).

Nick Young was strong again with 20 points, but is his transformation the real deal (see story)?

Now, let's look at some news and notes from around the Atlantic Division.

Teams interested in Terry
With both Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger now out for the season, the Boston Celtics may be looking to do some reconstruction to their roster. However, they may not have to seek out other teams to get the wheeling and dealing started.

According to CBS Sports' Ken Berger (via ProBasketballTalk), teams have been calling the Celtics to see if veteran guard Jason Terry is available.

Terry is averaging 10.0 points and 2.2 assists per game this season.

West pulls out of D-League deal
Speaking of Boston guards, former Celtic Delonte West's return to the league may not be happening in the near future.

West pulled out of his D-League contract, reports NBA.com's Jeff Caplan (via ProBasketballTalk).

"According to a source with knowledge of West’s thinking, the troubled combo guard has decided not to play in the D-League against the advisement of his representation," Caplan said. "West is represented by agent Dan Fegan. The source said that NBA teams have been reluctant to bring in West, even on a 10-day contract, until he gets back on the court and they see him play."

West was released by the Dallas Mavericks during training camp after the St. Joe's product was suspended twice for conduct detrimental to the team.
