It would have appeared to be pretty much of a no-brainer for Rony Seikaly. A deal had been made to send him to the Utah Jazz, a team that last year extended the Chicago Bulls to six games in the NBA Finals. Playing alongside Karl Malone and John Stockton, Seikaly -- who was not going to the playoffs with the Orlando Magic -- was as close to a title as he would ever realize.But the deal fell apart Wednesday. The Jazz said that Seikaly and his agent failed to communicate with the team. Seikaly -- perhaps in an attempt at spin control -- said on Friday that Utah was scared off by the deal because of a stress fracture in his foot that could keep him out for four weeks.

WASHINGTON -- Lawyers for the former Army physician who was called "a person of interest" in the deadly anthrax mailings in the fall of 2001 named three federal officials yesterday who they said illegally leaked confidential investigative information against their client. Steven J. Hatfill, who has not been charged with a crime and maintains his innocence, is suing the FBI, the Justice Department and a handful of current or former law-enforcement officials. Hatfill is alleging that the leaks damaged his reputation and violated his right to privacy.

MIAMI -- Even though Miami shot nearly 75 percent from the field in the first half and almost 62 percent for the game, the Heat's red-hot outside effort only offered half the explanation for the Washington Bullets' 128-98 loss to Miami last night.Bullets coach Wes Unseld offered the rest: "Yes, they shot the ball very well, but we didn't play any defense."As a result, the Heat (26-25) looked like the team that had just taken three of four games against the NBA's division leaders.The undermanned Bullets (16-36)

Here's a bit of advice to the Denver Nuggets: Just lose it.All season, the Nuggets have been awful. Beyond awful. And everyone had just assumed that they'd finish the season with nine wins or less, tying or beating the season of futility of the Philadelphia 76ers team that went 9-72 in 1972-73.But with a win over the Washington Wizards last week, the Nuggets had won three of four games. They nearly made it four of five, finally losing by one in overtime to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday.

MIAMI -- His first night in the NBA did not go kindly for Shawn Bradley.Matched much of the time against veteran Rony Seikaly, the Philadelphia 76ers' 7-foot-6 rookie was taught his share of lessons in a predictably uneven 101-84 loss to the Miami Heat.Lesson number one was that there are certain shots that not even someone with Bradley's size and reach can get away with in the NBA.He finished with three baskets in 21 shot attempts for 12 points, and turned over the ball eight times. He had several balls stolen or blocked by Seikaly.

LOS ANGELES -- As if the fading Washington Bullets didn't have enough problems, the team learned yesterday that the separated shoulder suffered Thursday night by forward Chris Webber will keep him sidelined for at least six weeks.After flying here earlier yesterday morning on a charter from San Francisco, Webber went to see Dr. Anthony Daly, the Los Angeles Clippers' team physician, for further tests. X-rays showed no breaks, but Webber more than likely will miss six weeks, starting with last night's 105-102 win over the Clippers at the L.A. Sports Arena.

So Rony Seikaly gets traded from Orlando to Utah, and doesn't report within the allotted 48 hours. Kenny Anderson is not happy about his deal from Portland to Toronto and decides he won't report. Same for Doug West, an original member of the Minnesota Timberwolves who's not happy about his trade to Vancouver -- he cites an alcohol problem as his reason for not reporting.Kind of makes you wonder who's running things in the NBA these days.Coaches and owners are getting fed up with the trend of not reporting when you're not happy with the team you're being traded to. The Seikaly deal was eventually voided, and he later was traded to New Jersey.

Just before a home-and-home series against the Miami Heat last month, the New Jersey Nets were talking about winning the Atlantic Division. And actually believed it. But the Nets went on to lose those two games and went on a nose-dive that, if the NBA season had ended on Thursday, would have left the team out of the playoffs.The surprise team in the NBA the first half of the season, the Nets have started to resemble, well, the Nets. New Jersey had dropped seven straight games, the longest current losing streak in the league, before last night's 108-93 victory over lowly Dallas.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- There is no better marketplace for weighing NBA trade rumors than in the hotel headquarters for the media and non-participating coaches during the championship series.And swap stories are in abundance this year, with a number of high-profile players involved. All-NBA center Hakeem Olajuwon, who has had recurring contract problems with the Houston Rockets, is the biggest star on the auction block. Miami reportedly has offered center Rony Seikaly in return, but balked when the Rockets also wanted the Heat to include shooting guard Glen Rice or point guard Steve Smith.
