UCLA's forwards, Trevor Wilson and Don MacLean, are together averaging almost 40 points and 18 rebounds a game. Obviously, they have played major roles for the Bruins, who will take a 6-1 record into a nonconference game against UC Irvine (2-7) tonight at the Bren Center in Irvine. But, lest there be any doubt as to the identity of the key player in the Bruins' resurgence this season, Coach Jim Harrick attempted Tuesday to set the record straight.

Veteran point guard Pooh Richardson, who spent most of last season on the injured list with the Clippers, was waived Thursday with one year remaining in his contract. Richardson, a former UCLA standout, has played 10 seasons in the NBA, and although the Clippers waived him, he will still be paid $3,460,710, which will count against the team's salary cap for the 1999-2000 season. Richardson played five seasons with the Clippers after being acquired in a trade from Indiana in 1994.

Pooh Richardson finished his four-year career with the UCLA basketball team No. 1 on the Pacific 10 Conference's assist list, as the Bruins' all-time leader in steals, and the first person in the history of the storied program to log more than 4,000 minutes of playing time. Then he did some things to really impress National Basketball Assn. scouts. With the NBA draft two days away, Richardson has climbed into the high-rent district among the best players in the country, thanks to a very good showing at a rookie evaluation camp in Orlando, Fla. "He's benefited as much as anybody," Denver General Manager Pete Babcock said of Richardson.

The Ferry tale is now for all the world to know, the story of the star-in-waiting who turned his back on the mighty National Basketball Assn. and bolted to Italy, a move heralded in Europe as if it were, well, soccer or something. Danny Ferry, today a Clipper by technicality only, will not leave for Europe until mid-August, putting him about two weeks behind teammates on Messaggero Rome in practice, but that doesn't figure to dull the excitement of his arrival.

Pooh Richardson, being of thick skin and thin blood, answers the phone at his home in Minnesota. The temperature outside hovers near zero. Things are cold, he says, even for someone who grew up in Philadelphia. On the court, they're not quite as bad--only chilling. But what can a guy do? He plays point guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves, though lately not as much as he would like. Not always the way he would like, either.

As they had done many times, childhood friends Pooh Richardson and Hank Gathers talked on the phone a few days ago. The subject, of course, was basketball. They laughed and exchanged assorted items about friends. But Richardson, who grew up with Gathers in Philadelphia, made it a point to ask about Gathers' health, especially after the collapse of the Loyola Marymount star earlier this season.

Because they broke convention by keeping the first overall selection in the National Basketball Assn. draft cloaked in secrecy until the last possible moment, the Sacramento Kings figured to unveil a surprise choice Tuesday night at New York's Felt Forum. And they did not disappoint. The Kings, ending speculation that began immediately after they received the first pick in May's draft lottery, made Louisville forward Pervis Ellison the first overall pick over the likes of Sean Elliott, Glen Rice, Stacey King and Danny Ferry.
