Council tells PPD to stop working with ICE RIKARD LARMA/METRO

City Council unanimously approved a resolution Thursday calling for city police to stop sharing information with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under a controversial program. ICE launched Secure Communities in 2008, re-

quiring state and local police to turn over fingerprints for everyone they arrest with the goal of deporting dangerous illegal immigrants. With the police department’s agreement set to expire Aug. 31, Council members claim the part-

nership should be discontinued because it is discouraging immigrants to report crimes. “The proof is in the numbers. We are unfairly deporting folks and not providing people the due process the American Constitution allows for,” said

Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez. District Attorney Seth Williams said last year he favors the collaboration. “ICE should have the ability to know about illegal immigrants who commit crimes in our city,” he said then. SOLOMON D. LEACH

Ignored cemetery irks families of buried dead City may get some initial answers when court briefs filed next Friday But attorney for last surviving link to Mount Moriah’s deceased governing body says she’s not liable

RIKARD LARMA/METRO

As the deadline approaches next week for filing briefs in the unusual case of the cemetery history forgot, Mount Moriah in Southwest Philadelphia, an attorney for the only woman with a connection to the graveyard’s managing board said she’s not responsible. The city, however, will tell the court they think Lydia Jones, an elderly widow of a man who when he died was the last member of Mount Moriah’s governing body, is responsible. “The city has asked for a significant fee against Mount Moriah Cemetery Company and will further ask that Lydia Jones be held responsible,” said Deputy Managing Director Brian Abernathy. But Jones’ attorney James Kutz says she is infirm and has not even been in Pennsylvania the past 10 years, except to appear at a June 7 court hearing. “We laud the city in its effort to try to deal with

the condition of the cemetery,” Kutz said. “Lydia Jones is not the proper person to deal with the issue. She is a retired employee with Parkinson’s disease and has lived in Maryland for the past 10 years and has never been the owner and cannot be legally responsible.” Gary Buss, president of the Pennsylvania Cemetery Cremation and Funeral Association, said Mount Moriah is a unique case. He said he’s never heard of a cemetery, in Pennsylvania or the nation, as large and old as this as far as neglect and the mystery surrounding who owns it. MIIKE PIFER

buried at the cemetery. Another brother of Lloyd, who has attempted recently to visit the graves, said the weeds are so high he doesn’t know if the tombstone is still standing, she said. “What can I do? What should I do?” she asked. METRO/MP

Nutter vetoes Council’s DROP plan A week after City Council overwhelming approved a revised DROP program, Mayor Michael Nutter vetoed the legislation. “The only DROP bill I will sign is one that eliminates DROP,” he said Thursday. Dueling DROP-related legislation was introduced in May. Nutter’s proposal, which remains in committee, would eliminate the controversial pension program, citing a report that found it cost taxpayers $258 million since 1999 despite cost-neutral billing. Council’s legislation — which passed 14-3 — didn’t eliminate DROP but required employees to work two years beyond minimum retire-

Republicans walk out of budget talks

Hopes for budget-cut deal dashed as top GOPers set up talks between Obama, Boehner If default occurs, would be bad news for global economy Republicans walked out of budget talks on Thursday, setting up a showdown between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner over how to extend U.S. borrowing and avoid a looming debt default. Vice President Joe Biden and a handful of lawmakers had hoped to reach a budget-cutting deal that would allow Congress to sign off on continued borrowing. But Republicans quit unexpectedly after saying the group had reached an impasse over tax increases sought by Democrats.

“It appears that Cantor has obviously had enough of these negotiations and Kyl followed suit, but there has been progress made. It’s not as if nothing has happened.” SEN. HARRY REID

“I believe it is time for the president to speak clearly and resolve the tax issue,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who had represented House Republicans in the talks. Republican Sen. Jon Kyl also pulled out. Cantor and other negotiators had hoped to reach a budget deal by next week that would give lawmakers political cover to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling before Aug. 2, when the Treasury Department has said it will run out of money to pay the country’s bills. Default could occur if Congress does not act by

then, pushing the United States back into recession and sending markets plunging around the globe. Obama will now probably have to hammer out a deal with Boehner, the top Republican in Washington, and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid — the same trio that took the government to the brink of a shutdown in an earlier budget battle this spring. “I think it’s in the hands of the speaker and the president — and sadly, probably me,” Reid said at a news conference. No initial meeting has been set, he said. REUTERS

dd it all up and before you know it, you are streaking as fast as you can in the spinning wire wheel without even a hint of progress. Ask the person next to you what’s up, and in all likelihood she’ll say, “Shut up. Just keep running.” That’s why people are upset. Their jobs are not necessarily a lot worse than they were — after all, who seriously expects decent management these days — it’s just that people feel trapped. Most of us will put up with a lot of misery if we are confident that we really can walk out when the situation becomes impossible. (Heck, that’s a practically a cornerstone of marriage.) But workplaces aren’t about that right now. These days having a job is all about pushing hard, keeping your head low and apparently building up bitterness — which I suspect will boil up like a bad scene from “Willard,” if we gerbils can ever open the cage doors again.

Hacker pleads guilty to creating AT&T-iPad breach 120K A computer hacker pleaded guilty to helping write malicious code that let him breach AT&T Inc. servers and steal personal data belonging to 120,000 Apple Inc. iPad subscribers, U.S. prosecutors said. Daniel Spitler, 26, admitted to one count of conspiracy to gain unauthorized access to computers and one count of identity theft at a Thursday hearing before U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton in Newark, N.J., federal court. Spitler could face a 12to 18-month prison term under federal sentencing guidelines, which a judge need not follow. The San Francisco resident is free

Prosecutors in January accused Spitler and co-defendant Andrew Auernheimer, 25, of using an “account slurper” to conduct a “brute force” attack over five days last June to extract data about iPad users who used the Internet through AT&T’s network. According to prosecu-

tors, Spitler admitted to being a member of Goatse Security, a group of “selfprofessed Internet ‘trolls’” who try to disrupt online content and services. They said Auernheimer was also affiliated with Goatse, and that creators of the account slurper leaked stolen e-mail addresses and other data to the website Gawker. Possible victims of the hacking included public figures such as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, anchor Diane Sawyer of Walt Disney Co.’s ABC News, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, prosecutors said.

Harry Potter e-books on the way, but no sequel The seven Harry Potter novels will be available as ebooks in October, author J.K. Rowling said on Thursday at the launch of a new interactive online website that will allow readers to navigate through the wizard stories. Rowling gave her clearest indication yet that she would not write an eighth Harry Potter story to follow the final installment published in 2007 by Bloomsbury in Britain and Scholastic in the U.S. “I do have closure with Harry,” Rowling told reporters at the launch of the Pottermore website (www.pottermore.com). “I have no plans to write another novel. I’m pretty sure I’m done on the novel front ... But it was fun while it lasted.” Such is the scale of Rowling’s fan base and the success of her novels that any indication of a new novel would be major news in the publishing and cinema world.

Scientifically Engineered to Defy Gravity

Defy Pain, Defy Aging, Defy Fatigue This is my story I used to be more active. I used to run, play basketball, tennis, football… I was more than a weekend warrior. I woke up every day filled with life! But now, in my late 30’s, I spend most of my day in the office or sacked out in front of the TV. I rarely get to the gym – not that I don’t like working out, it’s the nagging pain in my knees and ankles. Low energy and laziness has got me down. My energy has Customer Satisfaction fizzled and I’m Speaks for Itself! 4 out of 5 customers purchase a embarrassed to 2nd pair within 3 months. admit that I’ve grown a spare tire (I’m sure it’s hurting my love life).

They boost your energy by propelling you forward.” The longer he talked, the more sense it made. He was even wearing a pair himself!

by Britney Spears

Britney has always been great at looking at what other people are doing and saying, “Hey, that looks cool. Let me try!” and totally kicking ass at it. Here she runs away with the catchy whistling and the “I wanna go all the wayay-ay/Takin’ out my freak tonight” party message.

“Tonight Tonight” by Hot Chelle Rae

This one has everything a song of summer should: Huge “woah-oh-oh” chorus, lazy beat, pop culture references galore (“I woke up with a strange tattoo, not sure how I got it ... And it kinda looks just like you, mixed with Zach Galifianakis”), funny lyrics (see previous quote) and that carpe noche chorus of “We’re going at it tonight/ There’s a party on the rooftop, top of the world.”

T

here are no awards for the “song of summer,” just the honor of worming your tune into the collective consciousness during the most nostalgic season. To achieve the “song of summer” status requires more than the hallmarks of a hit during any other time. It helps to have at least two of the following: laid-back vibe, a “The Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga

Like a great summer night, this song is all about living in the moment. There’s no whistling, but the line “Another shot before we kiss the other side,” can function as a requisite booze reference, and the solo by the late, great Clarence Clemons is just begging for thumb-tomouth air sax.

“Wetsuit” by the Vaccines

The Vaccines sound like a cooler Coldplay here. With its repeated incantation of “we all got old at breakneck speed,” this song was tailor-made for a yearbook quote.

seize-the-night message, whistling, funny lyrics, a booze and/or pop culture reference. You also need a quotable line for various summer situations. When you get to the keg party and it’s all dudes, the chorus of “Where Them Girls At” is a good start.

“Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People

The third whistler on the list is actually a dark song about taking revenge on bullies. But when Mark Foster, who sounds like he’s talking from an interrogation room during the verse, bursts into the celebratory chorus, it’s easy to sing along, even if you don’t realize you’re saying, “you’d better run faster than my bullet.”

“Pricetag” by Jessie J (with B.o.B.)

PAT HEALY

pat.healy@metro.us

“Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj/ “Where Them Girls At” by David Guetta featuring Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj

There’s something so likable about Minaj’s voice. Whether singing or rapping, she’s dirty and funny, and in these two jams, she effortlessly references Led Zep, Slick Rick and Peabo Bryson (!). The line you’ll be singing: “Tell him who the eff I is.”

“Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” by Katy Perry “Pictures of last night ended up online, I’m screwed ... It’s a blacked out blur, but I’m pretty sure it ruled.” That’s a good summary of this hilarious hangover ditty. If you go all summer without one “T.G.I.F.” chant, you’re not alive.

Jessie J just wants to make the world dance. Singing in a sexy Brit plea against a chill “Ooh Child” groove, J calls for a pre-MTV world. “We need to take it back in time/ When music made us all unite/And it wasn’t low blows and video hos.”

“Give Me Everything” by Pitbull (with NeYo, Afrojack and Nayer)

Employing the same seize-the-night ethos that make the Gaga and Britney songs work, Pitbull raps a “got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan” line as well as an “I might drink a little more than I should” line as Ne-Yo delivers the catchy chorus. You’ll be playing this as you get ready to go out because you know you’ll be hearing it when you get to where you’re going.

And [then there were] the orgies. That is one script that I got and I’m like, “Wait, wait. Back up.� But we did it and we did it as a group and we were all professional, freezing out there together.

This week, the ladies (and one man) wrote in, cracking me up with their various pick-up lines for the newly single George Clooney, and @Shinji_Bourne made an excellent point about Christina Aguilera being the highest paid judge on “The Voice.” @sarrible I met George Clooney once. Think we hit it off. In fact, I’m expecting him to call me, except he only has my old #. Dammit! @SilentButHeard I’d wear my glasses and say “you look like just as hot George Clooney, did you know that?” Stacey (via email): Let’s be honest. I need to kick start my acting career. I will sign any agreement in exchange for 3 months with you and an engagement ring (which I get after we “break up”). Deal??? Sentell (via email): We’d be the first to get married in my home state of New York! @heidiwmetcalfe oh #clooney, let's motorboat! and by that i mean, take you for a ride on my boat, in lake como. I WILL TWEET U A PIC OF MY TWO BIG BOATS. @ Shinji_Bourne I’m no fan of “The Voice” or Christina but don’t you think for once we should be praising a woman earning more than a man?

Vanessa Minnillo announced their upcoming summer nuptials will be televised in a special on TLC (because it worked out so well for him the first time he tried that on “Newlyweds”). And as we previously mentioned, Hugh Hefner’s planned TV wedding special will still air on Lifetime in July, but revamped so it will have a “runaway bride” theme. So here we have Hefner publicizing his failed attempt at wedding No. 3 to a woman sixty years younger than he is and two celebs (one of whom got famous for making a sex tape) trying to make a buck from their second marriages by planning huge, wasteful, over-the-top nuptials. And here people complain about gay people trying to ruin the “sanctity” of marriage ...

the mature storytelling that the company is known for. “Cars 2” shoves Lightning McQueen to the sidelines of his own franchise in favor of an ill-conceived James Bond homage starring the comic relief character Mater. The material might have worked as a direct-to-DVD sequel exclusively for children, but as a big screen outing, it’s a letdown. The animation is stunning and there are a handful of funny sequences, but it’s impossible not to compare it to other Pixar projects. Pixar set the bar high for animated fare, and at this point simple family escapism like “Cars 2” isn’t quite enough. PHIL BROWN

‘Bad Teacher’ scores high marks Though it could stand to be a little more risque, this comedy succeeds thanks to a solid supporting cast GEMMA LAMANA

Having seen the red band trailer for Bad Teacher, we went in expecting a vulgar, funny swearfest along the same lines as “The Hangover.” Instead, we got a funny, only somewhat vulgar movie that could have benefitted from a bit more raunch. It seems a bit afraid to go all the way. Diaz’s character, Elizabeth — desperate, pretty on the outside but ugly underneath — is an odd character to hang a comedy on, but she pulls it off. She’ll never be the funny, fresh face she was in “There’s Something About Mary” and “The Mask,” and for this movie

Credit Card Debt?

ADVERTORIAL

Solutions that can help you get out of debt. Tom Hill CGA STAFF WRITER

Every three minutes another person falls behind on credit card debt. It’s no wonder, since every major credit card company has nearly doubled the minimum monthly payment on consumers’ bills. Federal Regulators forced the change because of their concern about the growing mountain of consumer debt, which stands at $2.17 trillion. Many consumers can only pay the minimum payment, which can take up to 30 years to pay off. Now, relief is in sight for millions of Americans.

www.metro.us

U.S. CREDIT CARD DEBT PER HOUSEHOLD ($) $10,000 $9,000 $8,000 $7,000 $6,000 $5,000 $4,000 $3,000 $2,000 $1,000

CreditGUARD of America, a non-profit licensed debt management service provider, is making a new program available to lower debt payments and become free of all credit card debt in only three to five years. Consumers need only $2,000 or more in total credit card debt and falling behind on any account, to cut their payment by 35% to 50%, and reduce or eliminate interest charges altogether. Over 200,000 families, located throughout the U.S. have regained financial independence with CreditGUARD’s licensed, bonded and insured service. CreditGUARD of America has received high marks in consumer surveys showing high consumer satisfaction and confidence. The CreditGUARD debt management program can lower your monthly payments by hundreds and save you thousands! One such case is Sandra L. who proclaimed “CreditGUARD cut my monthly payment by $656 and saved me over $29,206.53 in interest. They saved my way of life and gave me back my piece of mind! Now I can see myself on my way to becoming debt free.” or Jeffery C. who said “CreditGUARD of America helped me consolidate 3 of my credit cards into one affordable payment. They are now saving me nearly $200 a month. Now I will be debt free in 2 years or less” To calculate your monthly payment and interest savings visit us at: www.creditguard.org/np Certified Credit Counselors at CreditGUARD of America provide Debt Relief Consultations at no charge, when you call 1-888-483-6410.

that’s a good thing. The very slight patina of age and experience in her manner adds some extra desperation to Elizabeth. Having said that, this movie wouldn’t work nearly as well without the supporting cast of Jason Segel, John Michael Higgins, Phyllis Smith from “The Office” and Molly Shannon. They don’t exactly rescue this movie — it doesn’t need rescuing — but without them “Bad Teacher” wouldn’t be nearly as much fun. Cameron Diaz pulls off the bad teacher act well.

RICHARD CROUSE METRO WORLD NEWS IN LONDON

The plot

Getting an education In the new Cameron Diaz movie, “Bad Teacher,” she plays — you guessed it — a bad teacher! More concerned with hooking up with a wealthy co-worker (played by her real-life ex, Justin Timberlake) than with her students, she doesn’t make much of an effort to actually educate until she learns there’s a cash bonus for the teacher with the highest classroom grade average.

Want to help Pizza Brain become a reality? Brian Dwyer on this weekend's fundraiser for his upcoming pizza parlor and memorabilia collection For the last year, Brian Dwyer has been on an obsessive, all-out quest to promote his upcoming pizza parlor, Pizza Brain, scheduled to open in 2012 on Frankford Avenue in Fishtown. Last May, his 10-member team created a giant pizza float powered by four cyclists for the annual Kinetic Sculpture Derby. On July 31, he plans to set an official Guinness Book of World Records mark for the largest pizza memorabilia collection. But this Saturday could be Dwyer’s most celebrated stunt yet: His indie cover band mini-fest — “Oh, For Pizza’s Sake” — will land at Johnny Brenda’s, featuring members of mewithoutYou (along with Dwyer) playing Neutral Milk Hotel’s classic 1998 record, “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.” “We’ve gone to great

lengths to make a faithful recreation of the record,” says Dwyer. “There’s musical saws, trombone, trumpets — like, we’re not just some people standing up there covering the songs. We know how important the record is to people, and we want to do it justice.”

The event is also a chance for the avant-indie duo Pattern Is Movement to play an entire set of their early-’90s R&B favorites, from D’Angelo to Janet Jackson. “Clearly, these are pop songs we’re going to play, and clearly our band is not a pop band,” says Chris Ward of Pattern Is Movement. “But these songs speak to us in a profound way; they really were our bread and butter as kids. It’s what we were raised on.” Proceeds from the show will go toward a $15,000 pizza oven to be installed in Dwyer’s new restaurant. “One day, when you’re eating a nice delicious pie at Pizza Brain,” says Dwyer, always the promoter, “you can say, ‘Hey I gave a couple bucks to make this happen.’” BRUCE WALSH

‘Drug War’ not rocket science Nixon’s failed, racist War on Drugs began 40 years ago. Now, one in 100 adults and one in nine young black men are behind bars. Poverty and substance abuse go hand in hand. You can arrest the dealer, but there will still be a demand. Here’s how to reduce illegal drug use and violence: legalize and tax drugs, reinvest money from police and prison expansion into supportive community programs and mandate that the minimum wage be raised to a living wage!

If you need assistance for completing a job, be careful regarding the help you solicit. You’ll get plenty of volunteers, but they might be more interested in showboating. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22. Inner turmoil is likely to be generated when you find your trust in another has been sadly misplaced. Rely on past experience as your guide. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. Compromise is the key word for you, especially where domestic disagreements are concerned. Your attitude will play a critical role. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. One of the more critical areas in which you need to be monitored is your tendency to stick your nostrils into situations or problems where you’ve not been invited. Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21.

I’m even sorrier if she felt that she was speaking for all single ladies — because Dr. Alpert’s advice spoke volumes to me, a woman who is in a “benefits” relationship and is ready to walk away from it. Speaking as a single woman who has a full-time job while in school, my life is never too busy to be in a relationship with someone who respects me

homosexual I have to thank your publication for putting this issue out to the masses. It’s something that everyone should take seriously, not just one segment of the population. It wasn’t long ago that you could not talk about HIV and AIDS in the mainstream media. I always practice safe sex and go regularly for testing. I was just tested last week in fact, and if I were not terrified of needles I would do it again to show support and raise awareness for the issue.

alarm the letter from Jennifer Bellenoit in which she disagrees with Therapist Jonathan Alpert and calls him a “Quaker.” Apparently, it’s OK to use a religious group and their beliefs as a pejorative term in your newspaper. I’m shocked that you published such a letter. Would you publish one that

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. Don’t let your ego get in the way of your relationships with others. There are certain facets of your personality that could cause you to blurt out things you don’t mean. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. You’ll do yourself a favor if you can face the fact that not everybody will be in accord with your viewpoints or positions. When you can accept this, you can accept others. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. It’s nice to think well of people, but be wary of those whom you know from experience have exploited your generosity. People don’t change, but you can become wiser. Aries March 21-April 19. Keep a lid on your intensity and try to operate on a more placid wavelength. Once your forcefulness is set into motion, it could be extremely difficult to control. Taurus April 20-May 20. The best way to figure out who is your worst enemy is to look in a mirror. Compulsive behavior that will prove to be self-defeating. Gemini May 21-June 20. Operate as independently from others as you can because your way of doing things and theirs will be diametrically opposed to each other. BERNICE BEDE OSOL

#1 DAILY NEWSPAPER IN CENTER CITY

www.metro.us WEEKEND, JUNE 24-26, 2011

A FRESH START Flyers break up nucleus after two blockbuster trades Richards sent to Hollywood, Carter to Columbus Holmgren switches team’s direction

No one, not even Peter Laviolette, expected this when he woke up. But, around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, reports started circulating that the Flyers had broken up their nucleus. About an hour later, the team made it official with two press releases. The first announced the Flyers had sent captain Mike Richards to L.A. in exchange for center Brayden Schenn, wing Wayne Simmonds and a second-round pick in Friday’s draft. A second one said that Jeff Carter had been dealt to Columbus for 21-yearold wing Jakub Voracek, along with a first- and third-round pick in 2011. With the deals, the Flyers moved $100 million in salaries. Richards has nine years left on a 12-year extension he signed in 2007, while Carter inked an 11year, $58 million deal last November. The team will save $7.57 million next season in salary cap space. “Those are two hard phone calls to make,” Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said. “I think the world of both of them. That’s the hard part of the job.”

GETTY IMAGES

Summer fun The Flyers haven’t been shy about pulling the trigger on blockbuster deals in June. Here’s a look at the three biggest:

1 2 3 Jeff Carter, left, and Mike Richards were shipped out of town in separate deals.

The Flyers made the blockbuster trades to free up cap space for goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, who they signed to a $51 million deal. Still, Holmgren tore out the engine on a team two years removed from a Stanley Cup finals appearance. Richards and

Carter accounted for 23 percent of the offense last season, combining for 59 goals and 132 points. Obviously, the message Holmgren was trying to send was that this is a fresh start for the Flyers. “What we’ve done today is change the direction of

our organization with these two moves,” Holmgren said. “I’ve always said over the last few years that I like our team. I still like our team, it’s just a different team.” MIKE GREGER

mgreger@metro.us

June 20, 1992: Send six players, including Ron Hextall, plus two firstrounders and $15 million to Quebec for the rights to Eric Lindros. June 26, 2009: Holmgren puts stamp on team by swapping Luca Sbisa, Joffrey Lupul, along with first- and third-round picks for Chris Pronger. June 18, 2007: Not big at the time, but trading away just a first-rounder to Nashville for Kimmo Timonen and Scottie Hartnell was a steal.

Orange and Black end goalie carousel Snider, Holmgren get their man Sign Bryzgalov to nine-year deal Hasn’t won playoff series since 2006 GETTY IMAGES

Ed Snider can sleep easy. From the minute his Flyers were bounced from the Stanley Cup playoffs, he made landing a top-notch goaltender his top priority. “We are never going to go through the goalie issues we’ve gone through in the last couple of years again,” the Flyers owner said shortly after losing to the Boston Bruins. After signing Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine-year, $51 million deal Thursday, the Flyers believe they have their man. Of course, the move came at a hefty price. Bryzgalov will earn a reported $10 million next season. He’ll have a $5.667 cap hit until he turns 40.

Goals allowed by 17 Bryzgalov last postseason, as Phoenix

was swept by Detroit in four games during the first round.

Bryzgalov

“When you get a goalie you view as an upper-echelon goalie,” GM Paul Holmgren said. “You know you have to pay him.” Bryzgalov was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy two seasons ago, while averaging 33 wins per season with Phoenix. However, the 31-year-old came up short in last year’s playoffs and has only won one postseason series as a starting goaltender since 2006. METRO

Sixers take chance on Trojan big man

NBA. Irving No. 1

Team takes Vucevic 16th overall Biggest player in entire NBA draft Should push Hawes for starting job GETTY IMAGES

The hype leading up to Thursday’s draft was about Andre Iguodala’s departure. Sixers fans are going to have to settle for Nikola Vucevic’s arrival. While the Iguodala talks fizzled out in the days leading up to the draft, the Sixers attempted to address their gaping hole in the middle with the biggest player in the draft. Vucevic, who the Sixers took 16th overall, stands 6-foot-11 (260 lbs.) and has a massive 7-5 wingspan. He averaged 17.1 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game last season for USC. “He has a very high basketball IQ, which I think is extremely important when you’re going to play for Doug Collins,� Sixers GM Ed Stefanski said. Vucevic has the typical touch of a European big man and a nose for rebounding, Vucevic figures to push Spencer Hawes for the starting center job right out of the gate.

No deal What happened to all those Iguodala rumors? With the lockout looming, he’ll likely be a Sixer for some time now.

PREDICTING DEADLINE In five weeks, baseball’s annual hot stove will heat up once again. In the process, some of the biggest names in the big leagues will see their fantasy values impacted. Figuring out who might be moved is vital. We can dump players who figure to lose playing time and add setup men who are going to become closers. Here are three situations to monitor.

The Bell tolls

Fantasy sports

Heath Bell has been one of the best closers in baseball over the last three seasons. But the Padres may not be able to afford to re-sign him this winter, so a trade is likely. Mike Adams would become the Padres’ closer.

ADAM LEVITAN ALEVITAN@METRO.US

Little Rickie

No way, Jose Jose Reyes said this week that he won’t negotiate a new contract with the Mets until after the season. Considering the state of the team, it appears unlikely they’ll retain the impending free agent. If Reyes lands on a team that plays in a more hitter-friendly park and has a stronger lineup, he could be even better.

FROM

$250

DOWN

Jemile Weeks, Rickie’s brother, is playing well enough to hold the second base job down daily. Now that Mark Ellis is healthy, the A’s can ship him out of town and put all their eggs in Weeks’ basket.

NFL news

Clear head Percy Harvin said doctors found some things in his neck this summer that they believe caused his crippling migraines. Now Harvin says he feels as good as he has since kindergarten. If he can sustain health, he’s an elite playmaker.

Jose Reyes would benefit from a move out of New York.

Top MLB pickups

THE SEARCH

Dayan Viciedo 3B, White Sox The best prospect that hasn’t been called up yet. Once Viciedo is promoted, he’ll play regularly.

Dustin Ackley 2B, Mariners The No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft is up and manning the thin second base spot. Real power.

Jon Jay OF, Cardinals Thanks to Albert Pujols’ injury and Lance Berkman’s move to first base, Jay is getting to play every day.
