Songalia, Brackins are Sixers

A Willie Green knee injury that threatened to derail the Sixers' trade with the New Orleans Hornets in which they acquired forwards Darius Songaila and Craig Brackins has been resolved.

Songaila and Brackins could not practice this morning in the first session of training camp because Green's physical with the Hornets raised a red flag regarding Green's balky knee.  The teams have now agreed to the option to exchange second-round picks in 2011 and the trade, which also sent center Jason Smith to the Big Easy, is official.

Both Songaila and Brackins are expected to practice tonight.
