The day after the Detroit Pistons' Game 1 win over the 76ers in their Eastern Conference semifinal series, no one was more in demand than Arnie Kander. That isn't the best news for the Pistons, since Kander isn't a guard, forward, center or coach. His expertise lies in injuries. And the topic was the injured left ankle of Detroit point guard Chauncey Billups, who torched the Sixers for 24 points in 31 minutes of Tuesday's 98-87 Pistons victory. Kander, the strength and conditioning coach for the Pistons, was yesterday's most requested speaker.

THE NBA free-agent period has begun — at least the discussing of contracts and the rumor mill part of it. And all the talk and rumor-mongering will continue to pile up and draw flies until the free agents can actually start signing on July 11. But to help out some of the teams, we've categorized a few of the restricted and unresticted free agents into groups that will make it easier for general managers to sort through.

TOP FIVE (Records through Friday.) 1. Dallas (39-11): Jerry Stackhouse is giving the Mavericks a huge lift off the bench. 2. Detroit (41-8): With Chauncey Billups a little banged up, the Pistons dropped two straight. 3. San Antonio (39-10): The Spurs are rounding into form at the expected time. 4. Phoenix (33-17): Can they hold on until Amare Stoudemire gets back? 5. L.A. Clippers (30-18): If Corey Maggette gets healthy after the all-star break, look out. Moving up: Washington (no defense to speak of, but the offense is clicking on all cylinders)

Allen Iverson will make his debut for Detroit when the Pistons visit New Jersey tonight. Nets point guard Devis Harris hopes his team is ready. "He's willing to sacrifice," Harris said of Iverson. "He's proven that he can still get assists, that he can be that assists guy. He still likes to get his shots up, though obviously that's one of the things that have to give if they're going to start him at the point. Playing pick-and-roll with 'Sheed' [Rasheed Wallace] and Allen, that's pretty much a nightmare.

No one can really say how much Chester native Tyreke Evans, the former NBA rookie of the year, will play at either small forward, shooting guard, or point guard for New Orleans - only that he probably will take turns playing all three. The 6-foot-6 Evans, who visited Pelicans headquarters Thursday, said he has "no problem at all" playing extended minutes on the wing instead of his usual guard spot, if that's what coach Monty Williams needs. Evans said he was ready for a fresh start after spending his first four NBA seasons on losing teams in Sacramento, and said he was eager to join New Orleans' core of young, up-and-coming players, including his old friend from AAU basketball, point guard Jrue Holiday.

MAALIK WAYNS is well aware of the various projections. For what they're worth, most NBA mock drafts have the former Villanova point guard going somewhere in the bottom half of the second round on June 28. If they have him getting taken at all. He doesn't care. Nor should he. Because it only takes one team. And then it's going to be up to him to make something happen. "I look at a couple of people they have [rated] in front of me, and I feel as though I'm as good or better than them," said the Roman Catholic product, who left college a year early to pursue his lifelong dream.
