The Phoenix Suns shook up their lineup Saturday by trading Dan Majerle for Cleveland center John (Hot Rod) Williams. They shook up Charles Barkley as well. The Suns included second-year forward Antonio Lang and a first-round draft choice in the deal. It gives the Cavaliers, who may exercise the draft choice in any of the next three years, an outside shooter to replace Mark Price and brings Phoenix a shot-blocking center. Sun Coach Paul Westphal said Williams would play ahead of Joe Kleine.

The Clippers were ready to draft Bo Kimble Wednesday, in more ways than one. Members of the marketing staff had a season-ticket advertisement featuring the former Loyola Marymount star ready for publication in today's Times, just in case. When the Clippers used the eighth pick to take him, the go-ahead was given for publication. A more generic ad was standing by if the choice wasn't Kimble.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have matched the Miami Heat's $26.5-million, seven-year offer for forward John Williams, the Cavaliers announced Thursday night. By matching the offer, the Cavaliers' payroll will soar through the NBA's $11.87-million salary cap, limiting the ability to rework contracts of veterans or to sign free agents. The salary cap can be surpassed in this instance because Cleveland had no control over the offer Miami made to Williams.
