The New York Knicks were cleared of allegations that they tampered with Harvey Grant of the Washington Bullets by contacting him in composing their offer sheet before the deadline of July 1. The offer, a six-year, $17-million contract, was made on July 1, giving the Bullets 15 days--or until Friday--to match.

Shawn Bradley's rookie season came to an end Saturday in a doctor's office in suburban Philadelphia. The 7-foot-6 Philadelphia 76er center was injured in a collision with Portland Trail Blazer forward Harvey Grant, leaving Bradley with a dislocated kneecap and a bone chip in his left knee. Jack McPhilemy, the team physician, is expected to conduct an arthroscopic evaluation in two or three days, General Manager Jim Lynam said.

The Washington Bullets have accused the New York Knicks of tampering with forward Harvey Grant, a violation of NBA rules. The Bullets say the Knicks negotiated with Grant before July 1, the day free agents were allowed to meet with other teams. The Knicks denied any wrongdoing.

Kevin Duckworth, unable to deliver at center for the Portland Trail Blazers, was traded Thursday to the Washington Bullets for forward Harvey Grant. The play of Tom Gugliotta, a rookie last season, made Grant expendable for the Bullets. Duckworth, a 7-footer, averaged 18.1 points a game in 1988-89, but his average has steadily dropped, falling to 9.9 this season. Grant, 6-9, was the Bullets' top scorer this season at 18.6 and has averaged at least 18 points the last three years.

Harvey Grant made three free throws in the final 1:04 to give Washington a 102-99 victory Saturday night over the Philadelphia 76ers, the Bullets' first at Capital Centre since Feb. 7. Charles Barkley's 3-point shot at the buzzer was off the mark, and Washington escaped with its first victory in four meetings this season with Philadelphia. A victory would have put the 76ers in the playoffs. Pervis Ellison led Washington with 24 points. Ledell Eackles added 16 points and Grant 15.

On a clear day, the Washington Bullets could walk out of the gym where they trained at Shepherd College, climb a few steps to the top of a ridge, and gaze at a spectacular view of the West Virginia countryside. Spread out before them as far as the eye could see: a lush forest just now blazing into color with fluorescent reds, yellows and oranges.

The theory on how to play the Washington Bullets has been to double team Bernard King and not worry about his teammates. The idea was that King would probably score his 30 points, but with John Williams hurt, there weren't any other scoring threats. The theory is becoming history. The Bullets now have a one-two punch up front. King, the NBA scoring leader, had 37 points, but late-blooming Harvey Grant added 30 Saturday night at Landover, Md., and the Bullets beat the Boston Celtics, 116-99.

The Washington Bullets matched a $17-million six-year contract offer to keep Harvey Grant from going to the New York Knicks, but Grant probably won't stay with the Bullets. "The money's good, don't get me wrong," said Grant, who signed an offer sheet on July 1. "But this goes beyond money. They insulted me, they insulted my integrity, me as a person, my character."

It was time to talk about the enormity of the event, about the thrill of playing for the national college basketball championship and the specialness of it all. Which is why Harvey Grant leaned over his microphone Sunday to speak to his waiting audience, the cameras rolling and pens poised. "It's no big thrill," Grant deadpanned. There may be a time for seriousness on this Oklahoma team, but it has yet to be seen other than in the ruthlessness the Sooners show on the court.
