Team president Rod Thorn confirmed Tuesday via email that second-year forward Craig Brackins “will not be back” with the 76ers next season.

The Sixers declined to pick up the third-year option for $1.5 million on the 6-foot-10 Brackins, making Brackins a free agent.

Brackins was deactivated in favor of Xavier Silas for the Celtics’ playoff series. The Sixers signed Silas, a combo guard, for the final two games of the regular season.
