The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that they have assigned rookie forward Craig Brackins to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Springfield Armor. Brackins has appeared in one game for the Sixers this season, scoring 6 points in 10 minutes of play at Toronto on November 24.

The only other time the Sixers have assigned players to the D-League came on November 28, 2006 when Bobby Jones and Lou Williams were sent to the Fort Worth Flyers.

Brackins (6-10, 230) was originally the 21st overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft by Oklahoma City. His rights were traded to New Orleans along with the rights to Quincy Pondexter in exchange for Morris Peterson and the rights to Cole Aldrich. The Sixers acquired Brackins and Darius Songaila from the Hornets in exchange for Willie Green and Jason Smith on September 23.
