After a series of international discussions, rookie Sun Yue was sent to the Development League, becoming the first Lakers player this season to spend time with the team's minor league affiliate. Sun played Friday against the Anaheim Arsenal a few hours before the Lakers took the court against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center. He had 11 points and a team-high seven assists, though he made only four of 15 shots in the D-Fenders' 108-103 overtime victory.

It's come to this for the Lakers: If they don't trade up in the draft Thursday, their lone pick will be the NBA equivalent of Mr. Irrelevant. They have the 60th and final selection, the result of rapid-fire draft-pick dealing in March. Team executive Jim Buss told The Times last week the Lakers would try to trade into the first round, but if they didn't, they'd sit out the first 30 picks for the fifth year in a row. Yep. Draft day has become a complete bore for Lakers fans.

The New York Giants are interested in luring Michael Strahan out of retirement after losing Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora to a season-ending knee injury Saturday. Strahan's agent, Tony Agnone, said he received a "courtesy" call from the Giants but said the two sides did no negotiating. Agnone said he had not talked to Strahan, who is on vacation in Greece, about the Giants' inquiry. Strahan turned down a $6-million contract offer in the off-season. Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson has a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder but said he would try to play through the injury.

Gasol on ice. . . . Even before the Lakers' 2008 deal with Memphis that shook the NBA, they had a member of the family in their future, although it was Pau's little ? or, at least, younger ? brother, Marc, whom they drafted in 2007. Not that anyone outside the Gasol family thought much about it, with Marc going No. 48, 18 picks into the second round, and eight after the Lakers took Sun Yue. That was the draft in which Greg Oden and Kevin Durant went 1-2, and the summer Kobe Bryant went off on the Lakers.

The Lakers and their 2007 second-round draft pick Sun Yue agreed to terms, the team announced. Lakers spokesman John Black said Friday that the deal could be signed within the next few days. Last season, Sun played with Aoshen, a Beijing club team, and with the Chinese national team. On Sunday, Sun will play alongside Houston Rockets center Yao Ming for the Chinese team against the United States in the Olympic opener in Beijing.

Russia, with its deep Olympic tradition, and a rejuvenated Chinese team won their women's volleyball quarterfinals and will meet in the semifinals on Thursday. Russia defeated the Netherlands, 10-15, 15-7, 15-9, 15-10, and China defeated Germany, 15-12, 15-8, 15-8. Russia has never finished worse than second at the Olympics, winning four gold and two silver medals as the Soviet Union between 1964 and 1988, missing the 1984 Los Angeles Games because of a boycott.

It's hard to be motivated by a three-game trip against teams that are 15-32, but the Lakers will try their best by aiming for some in-game goals of their own. Indiana (6-10), Philadelphia (7-10) and Washington (2-12) won't send anybody screaming for the hills, so the Lakers will counter by trying to improve upon some slow starts. "I would say the first quarter," center Andrew Bynum said. "We have to limit the amount of points by the other teams.

Is the table being set again? A week after the Lakers pulled a pair of contract offers to Lamar Odom off the table, the sides resumed talks Wednesday. The discussions were labeled productive, but there was nothing to report "at the moment," according to a source familiar with negotiations who was not authorized to comment publicly.

The Lakers' season is more than a month away, but the Sun has already risen. Rookie Sun Yue met with reporters Wednesday, a couple of days after arriving in his new city, half a world away from his home in China. The Lakers' second-round draft pick from 2007 answered questions in English while sitting at a table before being surrounded by more than a dozen Chinese-speaking media members in a corner of a room at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo.

Now starting for the Lakers, rookie Sun Yue. OK, maybe not, but the depth chart at ball-handling guard flashed before the Lakers' eyes after Derek Fisher left Wednesday's game because of a minor strain in his left groin muscle. He was injured while guarding San Antonio's George Hill on a drive and called time out a few seconds later. He walked into the locker room with longtime trainer Gary Vitti and missed almost 4 1/2 minutes of actual game time, emerging with 3:37 left in the fourth quarter.

Pau Gasol doesn't smile blissfully on the way to work every day. He swears it's true. The veteran forward-center is experiencing his first training camp with the Lakers after six and a half seasons in Memphis. Preseason predictions have the Grizzlies near the bottom of the Western Conference, again. The Lakers, on the other hand, are the popular choice to win the West, if not the NBA Finals. Not that Gasol is celebrating.
