The Sacramento Kings signed Shareef Abdur-Rahim to a multiyear contract Friday, three days after the New Jersey Nets rescinded a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers because of medical concerns about the nine-year veteran's right knee. "The only thing I can tell you is that I'm healthy," Abdur-Rahim said. "I've never missed games or practices because of my knees." The Kings, who bid for the free agent's services earlier in the summer, wasted no time reasserting their interest.

Clipper Michael Olowokandi and Vancouver's Mike Bibby, who went 1-2 in last year's 1998 draft, will face each other in an NBA game for the first time tonight. Although Olowokandi is a 7-foot-1 center and Bibby is a 6-2 point guard, Olowokandi realizes that he will always be linked with the Grizzlies' rookie. "I'm sure 'SportsCenter' or 'Fox News' will probably play it up," said Olowokandi, who has played well in his first two games in averaging 13 points and six rebounds.

Eventually, the Clippers will win this season. The odds of them losing all 50 games of this shortened campaign are extremely thin no matter how many ways they discover to lose. On Wednesday night, it was their lack of rotation on defense and poor free-throw shooting down the stretch that cost the Clippers against the previously winless Vancouver Grizzlies.
