If Dwight Howard tells the Lakers he wants to go to Golden State in a trade, two things can help make it happen: Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes. The Lakers have not given up on re-signing Dwight Howard, but are considering what will make sense if the summer's biggest-name free agent wants to be dealt to the Warriors. Golden State guard Stephen Curry was on a can't-touch list, but young up-and-comers Thompson and Barnes would appease the Lakers, who were fine with trading with a division rival if the deal made sense, according to a person familiar with the situation.

It was a weak draft to begin with, quickly written off as Blake Griffin and a cast of dozens. But then let ESPN move in its crew and cameras for the day, let Shaquille O'Neal get traded to Cleveland, let Vince Carter get traded to Orlando, and you don't need to guess where ESPN's draft coverage is going to head in a sprint. "Let's talk," anchor Stuart Scott told analysts Mark Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy and Jay Bilas. "Shaquille O'Neal. LeBron James.

Richard Jefferson, the New Jersey Nets' leading scorer, will miss the rest of the regular season because of a ruptured ligament in his left wrist that he claims resulted from a dirty play by Detroit's Chauncey Billups. Net president Rod Thorn said that after surgery, Jefferson could not play again until late May. Jefferson insisted the injury happened when Billups undercut him on a layup attempt in Detroit on Dec. 27. Billups was called for a flagrant foul.

Jason Kidd's series-long slump ended, Kenyon Martin was energetic and the New Jersey Nets evened things up with the Detroit Pistons in yet another lopsided game. Kidd had 22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his seventh career postseason triple-double, scoring nine consecutive third-quarter points when the Nets broke the game open for a 94-79 victory in Game 4 of their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series Tuesday night.

Richard Jefferson had 14 points as No. 4 Arizona toyed with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis in a 70-41 runaway Monday night at Tucson. "Richard is really stepping up," Wildcat Coach Lute Olson said. "He is becoming a more vocal leader, as well as leading with his play." The Wildcats (8-1) were never tested in winning their second in a row after a loss to Connecticut. Rick Anderson and Jason Gardner had 11 points each, and Loren Woods scored 10.

Richard Jefferson stole the spotlight from Vince Carter and LeBron James. Jefferson scored 28 points, and the New Jersey Nets extended their winning streak to seven games with a 96-91 victory over James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night at East Rutherford, N.J. The focus was on the match-up between Carter and James. But with Carter limited to 30 minutes because of foul trouble, Jefferson picked up the slack. "Vince is our primary scorer, and that's his role," Jefferson said.

The Spurs acquired swingman Richard Jefferson from Milwaukee in a four-player deal Tuesday, giving San Antonio the extra offensive punch the aging former champions sorely needed. The Spurs sent veterans Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto to the Bucks in exchange for the 29-year-old Jefferson, who averaged 19.6 points in his one season with the Bucks. Milwaukee then dealt Oberto to the Detroit Pistons for forward Amir Johnson.

We don't pretend to know how this will turn out, but trust us on this: no matter the outcome, in the end, tears will flow against a backdrop of lilting violins. Arizona vs. Duke for tonight's national championship at the Metrodome is more than a pairing of the nation's top two teams. This marks the fourth time the preseason No. 1 and No. 2 in the Associated Press poll have met for the championship, most recently in 1999 when Duke played Connecticut.

I am not ashamed to say that I was a New York Net fan growing up. It was always a special day whenever I got a chance to travel from my home in New Jersey to Long Island's Nassau Coliseum to watch Dr. J and his afro dominate the court. It's too bad Julius Erving can't help the Nets now. Unless the Lakers slack off and just go through the motions on Wednesday, New Jersey's first appearance in the NBA Finals will be a short one.
