At his end-of-season meeting with management, Golden State center Rony Seikaly reiterated a wish to be traded. Atlanta has long been interested, but it does not have a center to send west in return. Boston can offer Eric Montross, who is displeased with his team's center-by-committee approach and who will exercise his option to leave the Celtics in the summer of '97 if they don't trade him first. But next season he'll earn only $1.28 million, and Seikaly is on the books at $3.75 million, too big a gulf for Boston. Cleveland likes Montross and even offered the Celts a first-round draft pick just before the Feb. 22 trading deadline. But trading Montross would work for the Celtics only if they can replace him with Clippers free-agent-to-be Brian Williams, whom they covet, or Pacers free-agent-to-be Antonio Davis. Williams, meanwhile, has expressed an interest in playing for the center-starved Cavaliers.
