The Los Angeles Clippers remain intent on keeping the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, and they're expected to make Oklahoma's Blake Griffin the top selection.
"The pick's not going anywhere," assistant general manager Neil Olshey said Monday.
Olshey also hasn't ruled out the possibility of acquiring another pick on or before Thursday's draft.
Kings: New coach Paul Westphal hired Mario Elie, Jim Eyen and Leonard "Truck" Robinson as his assistants. Westphal also retained 78-year-old assistant Pete Carril. Elie, a three-time NBA champion as a player, has been an assistant coach in Dallas, Golden State and San Antonio. He spent the last two seasons with the Mavericks while Westphal was an assistant coach and an executive in Dallas.
Knicks: Multiple sources confirmed New York has discussed a potential trade with Washington that would land the Knicks the Wizards' fifth overall draft pick while still allowing them to keep their spot at No. 8. The deal would likely have to include one of the Knicks' most cherished assets, swingman Wilson Chandler.
Heat: Miami made qualifying offers to Jamario Moon and Joel Anthony. Both are now restricted free agents, but the Heat will have the right to match any offer they receive from other teams.
Cavaliers: LeBron James is moving his King's Academy summer camp from his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to UC San Diego. The camp for boys and girls between 8 and 18 will be held July 24-28. Moving the camp gives kids in another part of the country the chance to experience it, director Damon Haley said. The cost is $650 for overnight campers and $510 for day campers.
Etc.: Retired star Jayson Williams will remain free on $250,000 bail after a judge in Somerville, N.J., rejected a prosecutor's request to revoke the bail and send him to prison for covering up the shooting of a hired limousine driver in 2002. Prosecutors asked the judge to reconsider the sentencing delay due to Williams' recent run-ins with the law. But State Superior Court Judge Edward M. Coleman noted Williams hasn't been convicted of anything since his 2004 trial. Williams was convicted in 2004 of trying to cover up the shooting death of Costas Christofi at his home in Alexandria Township, N.J. He was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter, but the jury deadlocked on a reckless manslaughter count. A retrial is pending.
