DETROIT - Vernon Wells, out since May 21 because of a torn ligament in his right thumb, is expected to begin a minor league rehabilitation assignment of seven to 10 games this weekend. Catcher Chris Iannetta, sidelined since May 9 because of a broken right wrist and a right forearm strain, hopes to join him. Iannetta threw to second base Monday for the first time since he injured his forearm in early June, and after repeating the workout Wednesday, he could begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

When training camp opens next month, Greg Somogyi will hold one distinction not even All-Star big men Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol can match: tallest Laker. How long the 7-foot-3 center graces the Lakers' roster is another matter. The Lakers signed the former UC Santa Barbara player to a non-guaranteed contract Wednesday and extended an invitation to training camp as the team fills out the margins of its roster for practice purposes. Like former UCLA forward Reeves Nelson, whom the Lakers also signed as expected Wednesday, Somogyi is the longest of longshots to make the team.

UCLA Coach Ben Howland reiterated that he has “made mistakes, along the way,” in judging the abilities and character of players during recruiting in recent seasons. But he said that was “surprised by the assertions” in a Sports Illustrated story that portrayed his program as out of control. “Some [of the instances] I had no knowledge about, some were taken out of context and some were not true,” Howland said. As to whether he expected to return as UCLA's coach, Howland said he and Athletic Director Dan Guerrero meet every year to “talk about our strengths and weaknesses and what we need to get better at. … I am very confident that I will lead this program lead in the future.” The story cited instances in which former UCLA forward Reeves Nelson intentionally went after teammates during practice without repercussions from Howland.

Like the home court being renovated around them, the UCLA Bruins are far from a finished product. But Coach Ben Howland proclaimed himself excited about his team after an 84-59 exhibition victory over Cal State Los Angeles on Tuesday night at Pauley Pavilion. "This is a young team," Howland said, "but I'm encouraged. " The injury-plagued Bruins made the most of their eight available scholarship players, with sophomore Tyler Honeycutt getting 15 points and 15 rebounds and freshman guard Tyler Lamb adding a game-high 17 points off the bench.

Defense has always ranked among Ben Howland's favorite topics, so it makes sense to hear the UCLA coach talk about double teams and help-side rotation leading up to the season opener. "We're still having a problem defending the dribble," he said Thursday after watching film of a recent victory over Humboldt State. "There were a number of times we were getting beat off dribble penetration." This is a young team that has yet to adopt Howland's trademark pressure defense. He expressed concern about an athletic Cal State Fullerton visiting Pauley Pavilion on Monday night.

There was a different look to UCLA guard Malcolm Lee's game Saturday. Freed mostly from the chore of being the Bruins' point guard, Lee had a flow to his game. It was reflected in his 18-point performance in a 70-68 loss to Oregon. "I think he scores better from that position because he does not have to worry so much about running the team," Coach Ben Howland said. Lee made eight of 14 shots. He scored 10 of the Bruins' last 12 points of the first half to keep a bad situation from becoming worse.

UCLA might want to add ear plugs to its travel checklist the next time it hits the road. The Bruins continue to have problems tuning out opposing fans, their latest issues surfacing Thursday night during an 85-74 loss to Arizona. UCLA Coach Ben Howland said several players responded to what he called inappropriate remarks made by Wildcats fans. "All they're trying to do is to get you to react to it, so it's actually serving what someone in the crowd tries to do," Howland said Friday.

UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero stopped short of guaranteeing that Bruins' basketball coach Ben Howland will return next season in the wake of allegations made by a Sports Illustrated story. The article painted a picture of a program where players used drugs and fought with each other in practice, as well as Howland giving preferential treatment that led to abuse by one player, Reeves Nelson. Nelson was kicked off the team in December. “Ben has been with me nine years.
