The Washington Wizards signed first-round draft choice Jarvis Hayes to a three-year contract yesterday, the club announced. Hayes, the 10th overall pick in June's draft, was eligible to sign for up to $4.7 million for three years with a fourth year at the club's option, under the NBA's sliding scale for draft selections. But Hayes, like Denver's Carmelo Anthony and Miami's Dwyane Wade, elected to postpone his signing until the Wizards could complete their run at free agency, so as not to tie up the club's salary cap. The Wizards signed former Golden State point guard Gilbert Arenas to a six-year, $66 million contract earlier this month.

The debut of Maryland center Alex Len tonight against Albany brings to mind other first games for former Terps. Coming into College Park, most were more celebrated than 7-footer from the Ukraine, but few were as important as Len could be to this season's Maryland team. Len is something of a mystery, but there are well-respected coaches and scouts who believe that Len could become a first-round NBA draft choice. First-year Maryland coach Mark Turgeon has done his best to downplay Len's potential,  and probably won't start him right away to allow him to get acclimated.    But Len's debut certainly has Terps fans buzzing, and has Turgeon hoping that the freshman will help his young team continue to grow.

This year's Ravens draft class reports to training camp today without as much fanfare as the team's recent ones. There is no first-round pick. There is no projected starter for this year in the group. There is no franchise quarterback (like Joe Flacco in 2008) and no connection to a Hollywood movie (like Michael Oher last year). But this year's rookies could make a big impact on a team with big expectations for the season. There is a chance that five players from this class could play in more than half the Ravens' games this season.

Saying it's time to move on, Orioles amateur scouting director Joe Jordan withdrew his offer for second-round draft pick Mychal Givens and turned his attention to signing several of the team's other draft picks. Givens, a shortstop out of H.B. Plant High in Tampa, Fla., was the 54th overall pick. Barring a sudden change before Monday's deadline to sign draft picks, Givens will accept a full scholarship to Oklahoma State and the Orioles will receive the sixth pick in 2010's second round as compensation for not signing him. "We just have too much ground to cover," Jordan said.

The Orioles have until midnight Monday to sign their second-round pick, but the club and Florida prep shortstop Mychal Givens expect to have a resolution - one way or the other - before then. "I think this thing will wrap up within the next 48 hours, but I have no idea where it is going," Orioles amateur scouting director Joe Jordan said Tuesday night. "We are trying to get something done, but I really don't know. I'd be guessing." The two sides spoke again Monday and Jordan said a decision must be made in time for Givens to come to Baltimore on Friday for a physical.

DETROIT - - For his first time as a baseball player, professional or otherwise, Adam Jones looked at the lineup card Tuesday and saw his name listed fourth. "I said: 'Oh, sweet. Hitting fourth for the first time,' " Jones said. Orioles manager Dave Trembley was hoping for a specific reaction. "When he came in today and he saw his name in the fourth spot, I [wanted] him to say, 'Darn, I know I can do this.' " Trembley said. "But I want him to know that I know that." Trembley said his main reason for the shake-up was to separate left-handed hitters Nick Markakis and Aubrey Huff against lefty Jarrod Washburn.

WASHINGTON - It's in Kwame Brown's face where Doug Collins can see the trouble. The problems of Brown, the Washington Wizards rookie forward, aren't found in the furrowed brow of a rookie struggling to find his niche, or in the scowl of a talented young player learning that the NBA won't roll over for him like high school players did. If anything, his older teammates have been telling Brown, the first overall pick in the June draft, that they can't read...

The Houston Rockets were prepared to draft former Maryland standout Terence Morris with the last of the team's three NBA first-round choices last night. Then the telephone rang, with the New Jersey Nets calling to offer former Seton Hall standout Eddie Griffin - the No. 7 selection overall - for all three picks. There was one stipulation: The Rockets had to draft Pepperdine guard Brandon Armstrong at No. 23, the pick with which Houston was hoping to take Morris. It was the first in a series of telephone calls that finally ended with Houston obtaining Morris, who had been picked early in the second round and 34th overall by the Atlanta Hawks, for a future draft choice.

The deadline for major-league clubs to offer salary arbitration to their free agents looms today, but it probably will not have a significant effect on the fortunes of the Orioles.The club has only one player who is affected by the deadline -- veteran pitcher Fernando Valenzuela -- and it doesn't appear he will be offered the chance to go to arbitration.The Orioles already declined to offer arbitration to pitcher Rick Sutcliffe, outfielder Lonnie Smith and second baseman Harold Reynolds, and signed free agents Tim Hulett and Harold Baines last week.
