The 76ers have recalled Craig Brackins.
Brackins, who was reassigned to the D-League on Feb. 7, has averaged 18.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 34 minutes a night in seven games with the Maine Red Claws.
The second-year forward appeared in eight games with the Sixers earlier this season, but never played any longer than 7 minutes per game. In all eight of those contests, the Sixers won by anywhere from 17 to 35 points. In this case, think correlation, not causation.
Anyhow, with Spencer Hawes' timetable seeming perpetually subject to change, the Sixers could use another body under the basket, even if Brackins is actually less experienced at the NBA level than rookies Lavoy Allen and Nic Vucevic.
But even with Hawes out, Brand having an ongoing thumb thing and Allen and Vucevic looking at times in over their heads, don't count any Brackins getting much run. He's a body, yes, but he's a body with deficiencies on defense. Until those are rectified, a player generally won't find favor with head coach Doug Collins.
And there you have it: 182 words on Craig Brackins.
ALSO: Dutch phenom Francisco Elson's 10-day expired. Go back to work.
What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
