Roddy Peters, the four-star recruit from Suitland who committed to Maryland on Tuesday, had a pretty good coach to learn from this past spring and summer while playing for D.C. Assault. Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, a former point guard himself, helped coach Peters on the local AAU powerhouse and believes the Terps made out well for themselves. "He's a terrific passer, a willing passer, who's great in the open court," Jordan said Wednesday from Los Angeles, where he is now an assistant with the Lakers.

WASHINGTON - It took Washington Wizards owner Abe Pollin eight fewer minutes to hire a Jordan than it did to fire one and as a result, the team has a new head coach. Pollin, who fired Michael Jordan as president of basketball operations a reported 18 minutes into a meeting last month, essentially settled on hiring former New Jersey Nets assistant Eddie Jordan as the franchise's seventh coach since 1999 within 10 minutes. "When you sit down with [Pollin], he can close a deal in 10 minutes," said Eddie Jordan, who replaces Doug Collins, fired late last month.

WASHINGTON - - Antawn Jamison had 32 points and 14 rebounds to lead Washington past the Philadelphia 76ers, 108-107, on Tuesday night, hours after the death of Wizards owner Abe Pollin. Nick Young added 20 points for the Wizards as they ended a two-game skid despite playing without Caron Butler, who sat out with a sore right ankle. Louis Williams' layup pulled Philadelphia to 108-107 with 40 seconds remaining. After Gilbert Arenas committed a turnover with 28 seconds left, Williams missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer as the final buzzer sounded.

The Nets fired coach Lawrence Frank on Sunday after losing their first 16 games. Assistant Tom Barrise coached Sunday's loss to the Lakers, the Nets' 17th that tied the NBA record. A permanent replacement hasn't been determined. Frank, dismissed with a 225-241 record, began his career with a 13-game winning streak, the best coaching start in league history. The Nets made the playoffs in each of his first four seasons before slashing payroll. "He wasn't dealt a royal flush," said Rafer Alston , who joined the Nets in the June trade that sent star scorer Vince Carter to the Magic and gutted the Nets' payroll.

WASHINGTON - In their fondest dreams, new Washington Wizards president of basketball operations Ernie Grunfeld and new coach Eddie Jordan would like to have their rebuilding process go smoothly, with lots of patience exercised by the team and fans alike That may be their hope, but it's not necessarily shared by free-agent point guard acquisition Gilbert Arenas, who wants the Wizards to be transformed with the same speed with which he attacks the basket....

WASHINGTON - Call it proof that progress is sometimes perverse. Meaning Eddie Jordan, district attorney for Orleans Parish in Louisiana. First black district attorney in New Orleans' history. That's the progress. Here's the perverse: Soon after he took office in January 2003, Mr. Jordan fired 53 white employees en masse and replaced them all with blacks. Last week, a federal court ruled that he committed racial discrimination against 43 of those workers. A jury of eight whites and two blacks ordered him to pay $1.9 million in back pay and damages.

WASHINGTON - Eddie Jordan saw the warning signs from a distance, even though he didn't know for sure exactly what damage had awaited him. An hour before tipoff at MCI Center last night, the Washington Wizards coach didn't know if his team would have to deal with Shaquille O'Neal. But he did know that O'Neal wasn't going to be the only Heat player making his strategizing a thoroughly miserable task. Shaq, Jordan pointed out, was one of "five or six" players in the league capable of doing that.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Viewed in the context of a glass of water, there are a couple of ways to view the Washington Wizards' backcourt situation. If you think of having newcomer Gilbert Arenas flanked with returning veteran Jerry Stackhouse as a half-full situation, then you see the Wizards as having one of the NBA's youngest and best guard tandems. But the pessimist would ask how Arenas, who usually shot first at Golden State then passed from the point guard slot, will co-exist with Stackhouse for shots.

WASHINGTON - When the Washington Wizards played their only home preseason game recently at MCI Center, they didn't look vastly different from the team they were facing - the expansion Charlotte Bobcats. An air of uncertainty, and unfamiliarity, followed the Wizards throughout the night before they pulled away at the end to win. Except for a few well-executed backdoor dunks, the Wizards still looked a bit impatient running the Princeton offense second-year coach Eddie Jordan brought here last season.
