We've certainly heard of player trades. And franchise trades: In 1972, Carroll Rosenbloom dealt his Colts to Bob Irsay for the Rams. And manager trades: In 1960, the Tigers and Indians swapped managers when Jimmy Dykes went to Cleveland and Joe Gordon was sent to Detroit. And players traded for baseballs (Tim Fortugno), for turkeys (Johnny Jones) and for oysters (Joe Martina). And even players traded for themselves: Clint Courtney and Harry Chiti. But here's a trade we haven't heard of: a swap of nicknames.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Doug Collins reached his breaking point with the Washington Wizards, becoming so frustrated with their passive play, particularly on the defensive end, that he cleared the bench for the fourth quarter of last night's game with the Charlotte Hornets. And the gambit almost paid off, as the Wizards nearly erased a 19-point lead before a largely indifferent Charlotte Coliseum crowd of 15,621. Ultimately, Washington could not make up for three periods of mistakes and shoddy free-throw shooting and lost, 97-91.

VS. CHARLOTTE HORNETS* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.* WHERE: Capital Centre.* TV/RADIO: HTS and WTOP-AM 1500.* OUTLOOK: Neither the Bullets (11-17) nor the Hornets (9-19) are going anywhere, but tonight's game will provide an interesting matchup, even if it won't be head-to-head. Bernard King's quest for the scoring title is one of the more intriguing stories in the NBA this year. The veteran forward is challenging Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan with a 30.2 average and has been the Bullets' only consistent performer.

Absent some miraculous shift in public opinion, the Charlotte Hornets will be heading for new territory come the end of the season, and there are at least three cities offering them safe harbor. One of them is not the Harbor city, namely Baltimore, and that doesn't make sense. That the Hornets are going is in little doubt. Fans in Charlotte, once the most rabid in the league throughout the first eight or nine years of the franchise, have become indifferent, if not hostile, to the Hornets.

There are some places where coaches and players and fans don't blink at 11-game losing streaks. And there are places such as Miami, where the Heat was once among the NBA's elite because of Pat Riley and Alonzo Mourning. When they woke up Friday morning, fresh off a six-point loss in Chicago the night before, Riley and Mourning were part of a team that shared the worst record in the league with the Bulls and the Memphis Grizzlies. "You don't win anything in November unless you're playing baseball," Mourning said in a quiet dressing room before the Heat lost to the Washington Wizards in Miami on Friday night.

WASHINGTON - Who said things were supposed to make sense in the NBA? The Charlotte Hornets, one of the Eastern Conference's best teams, hit nine of 15 three-pointers last night at MCI Center, while the Washington Wizards, one of the league's worst teams, hit none. The Hornets brought in one of the league's talented, if unheralded, backcourts in Baron Davis and David Wesley, while the Wizards not only were without both of their regular starting point guards, but had Richard Hamilton, their makeshift playmaker, foul out with less than two minutes to go. So, of course, in a truth-is-stranger-than-fiction outcome, the Wizards won. Juwan Howard's baseline turnaround with 1.8 seconds left lifted Washington to a 97-95 victory, its second straight, before a crowd of 11,579 that included a rare appearance by president of basketball operations Michael Jordan.

George Shinn lost his chance to be the man who brought Michael Jordan back to the NBA when the retired Chicago Bulls great broke off negotiations to buy half-interest in the Charlotte Hornets.In a statement released by his agent early yesterday, Jordan said he withdrew from negotiations not because of price, but because of control. In fact, the five-time NBA Most Valuable Player said he had offered to buy 100 percent of the Hornets, but was rejected."Due to my competitive nature and my desire to be actively involved in all aspects of ownership, the issue of control became paramount to me," Jordan said.
