Steve Mix, the 76ers' television color analyst for the last 13 years, will not have his contract renewed for next season. Contacted last night, Mix confirmed that he would not return but declined to comment further.

The 76ers referred all inquiries to Comcast SportsNet.

"With the conclusion of the 2006-2007 NBA regular season, we are evaluating new ideas for our Sixers game broadcasts, and will not be renewing Steve Mix's contract when it ends next month," said Tim Fitzpatrick, a spokesman for the network. "Marc Zumoff will continue his play-by-play duties."

Mix, 59, a former Sixers all-star, has been with the team as a broadcaster in some capacity for 20 years.
