In a letter to his father, meant to be read in the event of his death, Army Staff Sgt. Jesse Williams, 25, wrote: "Don't let me be forgotten in Santa Rosa.... Tell them I died for you and them." Since Williams was killed on Easter Sunday by a sniper in Iraq, his wish has been granted again and again. Hundreds of people lined U.S. Highway 101 to pay tribute as a hearse carrying his body traveled 70 miles in a motorcade from San Francisco International Airport to Santa Rosa, Calif.

The Dallas Mavericks traded forward Detlef Schrempf to the Indiana Pacers today for center Herb Williams and a second-round draft pick. The 6-foot, 10-inch Schrempf, a first-round pick by Dallas in 1985, has never cracked the starting lineup for the Mavs. The 6-foot, 11-inch Williams was drafted by Indiana in the first round of 1981. It was the second trade in a week for Dallas. The Mavs traded Mark Aguirre to Detroit for Adrian Dantley last week, but Dantley has not reported.

Either National Basketball Assn. teams are being run by a group of procrastinators, or these power brokers simply work better under deadline pressure. How else to explain the annual flurry of movement in the final days before the league-imposed trading deadline, preceded by months of inactivity and posturing? At least one long-rumored trade was consummated. An elaborate deal involving as many as four teams was scrubbed. And a few trades seem to have been made simply for the sake of change.

So, what does a guy do while he's sitting around waiting to be voted into baseball's Hall of Fame? Well, if that person is 311-game winner Tom Seaver, he might try his hand at writing whodunits. This would seem to be an unlikely career change for most athletes, but Seaver's been successful in many ventures, and he is a personable, informed and well-traveled gentleman. That he should take up the novelist's pen, as he has the broadcaster's mike, is no great shock.

The New York Knicks continued to reshape their roster and create possible salary cap maneuverability for next season on Sunday, completing a four-player trade with the Toronto Raptors. The deal sends Doug Christie and Herb Williams to the Raptors for Willie Anderson and Victor Alexander, both in the final year of their contracts. If the Knicks chose not to re-sign the players, it would free money under the salary cap.
