Earl Watson's boost in playing time and contribution to the Nuggets have pleased him. But he would like some closure to the trade rumors that have surrounded him nearly since the day he arrived this offseason. -- Denver Post

Count Allen Iverson among the NBA players who want to start a three-year mission with USA Basketball's senior national team this summer with a goal of winning the gold medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Trevor Ariza expressed his displeasure at being benched before the Knicks beat the Suns on Monday night, but the man who put him there didn't want to hear it yesterday. "If he's miffed, he's not as smart as I think he is," Larry Brown said of Ariza. "It's entirely up to him." -- New York Post

Knicks backup center Jerome James returned to practice Wednesday, but coach Larry Brown and a team spokesman declined to say whether his suspension would be lifted in time to permit him to take part in the Washington game Friday. -- Newsday
