Benoit Benjamin, whose agent, Larry Fleisher, died last spring, has new representation, including, at least in the background, Don King. Benjamin, the Clippers' free-agent center, has a three-man team handling his negotiations. King, the active boxing promoter who is still waiting to be accredited by the National Basketball Players Assn., is a not-so-visible fourth. "Don King is involved," said James Casey, a former sports reporter at KNAC radio and Benjamin's new manager.

Holmes has been victimized repeatedly this season. "He has been in the right spots, but the plays have been made (around him)," said Chris Allen, the Trojan defensive coordinator. "He just hasn't quite made the plays that we were hoping that he would make.

The Clippers' latest proposal to holdout center Benoit Benjamin Tuesday included something of a surprise, although it probably shouldn't have been under the circumstances: a weight clause. While offering a one-year deal at the original amount of $1.25 million and retaining an option for the second, the Clippers added a condition that Benjamin can receive an undisclosed bonus if he stays under 255 pounds. He will not be fined for going over, the idea being an incentive to stay trim.

Claiming Benoit Benjamin feels unappreciated after continued criticism, agent Henry Holmes Friday called on the Clippers to trade the holdout center. "He would like to be traded," Holmes said. "There are differences, not only financially, but philosophically, and it's just not a good mix." Holmes' comments echo those of Benjamin's previous agent, Larry Fleisher, who died last spring. Benjamin, who had expressed a desire to remain in Los Angeles, could not be reached for comment.

A judge sentenced an Oceanside couple to prison Monday for selling stolen military gear from Camp Pendleton, but he staggered the terms so one parent can take care of their two small children while the other is in jail. U.S. District Judge Rudi Brewster in San Diego sentenced Donna Jean Holmes, 37, to two years in federal prison, but ordered that her term not begin until five days after her husband, Thomas Henry Holmes, 42, finishes his six-month sentence.
