While the Clippers were losing to Seattle SuperSonics and losing guard Derek Smith in the process with a knee injury, SuperSonic General Manager Lenny Wilkens met with Norm Nixon's agent in what might be the first step in tendering Nixon an offer sheet. "It looks good," said Tom Collins, Nixon's agent. "We're trying to figure out how to do it. But Seattle wants Norm. They want to do it."

The Lakers were interested in obtaining Bill Walton from the Clippers a year ago, but never could put together a deal. They might be even more interested this summer if the alternative is finding the 32-year-old center standing squarely in the path of another NBA title. That is a distinct possibility now as inquiries about Walton, a free agent, have come from the Boston Celtics, the Lakers' opponent in the just-concluded NBA finals.

The Clippers agreed to terms Wednesday night with first-round draft choice Benoit Benjamin, and General Manager Carl Scheer said he hopes to have the 7-foot center signed and at the club's training camp by tonight.

The Charlotte Hornets fired Coach Dick Harter Wednesday and named assistant Gene Littles as interim coach, team officials said. "A skill that a coach must have is communication and it came to the point where I couldn't, as the owner, communicate with Dick and I know that he had lost his communication link with the players," owner George Shinn said. Harter, 58, was 8-32 this season and 28-92 in 1 1/2 seasons.

After 15 professional seasons, former Denver Nugget center Dan Issel played his final game last May at the Forum. The Lakers won, eliminating the Nuggets from the playoffs, but Issel's most vivid memory from the game is the standing ovation he received after making the final shot of his career, a three-pointer, in the fourth quarter.

John Thompson said today that he still hasn't decided whether he will leave Georgetown, where he has coached for 18 years, to become general manager of the Denver Nuggets. Thompson is considering an offer worth more than $6 million from the NBA team. Reports said he was presented with a four- or five-year deal worth $700,000 per year and as much as 4% ownership of the Nuggets. That percentage would be worth about $2.8 million. "If you think I'm considering an offer, you're absolutely right.

The Los Angeles Clippers today fired head coach Jim Lynam and named Don Chaney, an assistant coach and former National Basketball Assn. star with the Boston Celtics, to replace him. Lynam, 43, has been criticized for preferring the slowdown, tactical style of play as opposed to the running game.

Shortly after the Clippers' loss here Wednesday night, General Manager Carl Scheer took a train to New York, where he is expected to meet with Knick General Manager Scotty Stirling today in another attempt to trade point guard Norm Nixon for off-guard Darrell Walker. If the Clippers can trade Nixon, it would make it possible for them to acquire guard Darnell Valentine from the Portland Trail Blazers, a move Scheer wants to make as soon as possible, sources said.
