There were more calls made in John Nash's office yesterday than in the 76ers' 98-94 victory over the New York Knicks last night. "I got more than I made," the Sixers' general manager was saying, taking a break from the search for some temporary manpower. The Sixers learned yesterday that center Jeff Ruland would miss at least six more weeks of the season. Ruland, the starting center in the first two games, underwent arthroscopic surgery that involved trimming back the left lateral miniscus and having his knee washed clean of loose particles that had been causing pain and swelling.

Andrew Toney's physical well-being continues to be shrouded in mystery as the Sixers' two-time all-star guard missed practice yesterday after being declared fit to play. "He's still hurt," coach Matt Guokas said. "He worked out apparently over the weekend and experienced more soreness in the right foot and went back to see Dr. (Joseph) Torg. " Torg on Friday pronounced Toney fit. Toney was returned to the injured list Feb. 24 after appearances in two games. Because of the discomfort that resulted from the weekend's workout, Toney apparently was not satisfied that his feet, both of which were treated for stress fractures from November until Toney was activated on Feb. 12, were fully healed.

The Milwaukee Bucks played last night without all-star guard Sidney Moncrief. The 76ers trekked into the Milwaukee Arena without Charles Barkley, their No. 2 scorer and rebounder. Obviously, the Sixers missed Barkley, who sat out with a lower back strain, more than the Bucks missed Moncrief. The Bucks overwhelmed the Sixers in a lopsided third quarter to turn a 10- point halftime deficit into a massive 29-point bulge and coasted home to a 125-95 victory over the reeling Sixers, who lost their third straight.

Word circulated at the NBA Finals last night that Miami Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo was scheduled to meet with Billy King, the 76ers' president and general manager, about the Sixers' head coaching job. King and Heat officials were unavailable for comment, so the report could not be confirmed. If McAdoo meets with King, he would be the latest in a long list of candidates with whom the Sixers official has met since Larry Brown resigned as coach three weeks ago. Even so, New Jersey Nets assistant Eddie Jordan and Sixers assistant Randy Ayers are believed to be the prime candidates for the job. Another interesting twist in the Sixers' coaching search involves Portland's interest in Ed Stefanski, the Nets' director of scouting.

The 76ers, the "Gray's Anatomy" team of the NBA's stretch run, have written one more unlikely chapter. Jack McMahon, their assistant coach and director of player personnel, is in Temple University Hospital with a blood clot in his right leg. McMahon, 56, who had been in Dallas Sunday to scout a college all-star game, was admitted to the hospital Monday night under the care of Dr. Michael T. McDonough, a cardiologist. "I'm out for the remainder of the regular season, but I'm definitely a possibility for the playoffs," McMahon said.

Julius Erving bruised his right knee during the 76ers' game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night and will not play against Portland tonight at the Spectrum (7:35). Erving did not practice yesterday and might also miss Friday's game against the Washington Bullets. "From what the doctor says, it's a bruise," said Sixers coach Matt Guokas, who said the injury was not believed to be serious. "It's a little swollen and needs some rest. " Guokas said that Erving's status was day to day and that he had not decided who would replace the Sixers' captain in the starting lineup.

The Los Angeles Lakers have conceded. Bob McAdoo officially will become a member of the 76ers tomorrow night - in time, ironically, to face the Lakers in Inglewood, Calif. "There's nothing left to be done, we really have no options," said Jerry West, the Lakers' general manager. McAdoo, the 34-year-old center/forward who spent the last four seasons with the Lakers, was tendered an offer sheet by the Sixers Jan. 14. The Lakers, even though they could not match the Sixers' $205,000 offer for the remainder of this season and an additional clause for next season, insisted on exercising their 15-day right of first refusal.

Andrew Toney's search for tomorrow isn't over after all. The 76ers' injured guard has medical clearance to resume working out, but he still isn't sure if he will play again this season. Follow: Dr. Joseph Torg yesterday described the stress fractures in Toney's feet as "properly healed. " Toney, in a telephone call to Sixers' publicist Harvey Pollack, then said he had a decision of his own to make. "I'm going to work out this weekend and will have an idea on Monday of what type of agility and moves I can make and whether my ankle can sustain the hard cut that the game of basketball so much demands," Toney told Pollack.

Randy Ayers, the 76ers' coach, and Danny Ainge, the Boston Celtics' head of basketball operations, were cautious yesterday when they discussed the Kobe Bryant case.

District Attorney Mark Hurlbert that Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers star who played at Lower Merion High, had been charged with one count of felony sexual assault as the result of an incident that occurred on June 30. Bryant released a statement maintaining his innocence, although he did admit to adultery.

Frank Lawlor, a former Inquirer reporter who covered the Sixers from 1993 to 1995 and now lives in Spain, spent May watching the 2001 team with his father, who would soon die of cancer. He is now the editor in chief of www.euroleague.net. I spent all of May watching the 76ers on TV in the suburbs instead of sitting courtside for free at every home game. I was serving a self-imposed ban of sorts. I wanted the Sixers to win, but my firsthand experience with the club argued against it happening with me in attendance.

Money and years on the contract were hot topics after St. John's coach Mike Jarvis turned down a job offer to become the Washington Wizards' next head coach. But, according to NBA sources, the issue that really affected Jarvis' decision was Sunday's NBA draft lottery in Secaucus, N.J. According to a Wizards source, Jarvis made a call to Michael Jordan, the Wizards' president of basketball operations, and Wes Unseld, the general manager, on Sunday afternoon. He said to take his name out of the running.

Bob McAdoo, a three-time NBA scoring champion, postponed the celebration. As good as it felt when told he had been elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame, McAdoo was too disappointed from the Miami Heat's playoff loss Sunday to the New York Knicks to revel in the honor. "It's the ultimate goal for any player," McAdoo, a Heat assistant coach for the last five years, said yesterday. "It means all your hard work - your successes and failures - hasn't be in vain. " There are 16 nominees, including former Sixers star Bobby Jones, former Immaculata College coach Cathy Rush and former La Salle assistant Jim Phelan, who has spent 46 years at Mount St. Mary's.
