Mike Dunleavy, the third overall pick in the NBA draft, signed with the Golden State Warriors yesterday. Dunleavy, a 6-9 forward, was a member of Duke's 2001 national championship team. He averaged 17.3 points and 7.2 rebounds for the Blue Devils last season, then skipped his senior season to enter the draft. The Warriors wouldn't discuss the terms of Dunleavy's 3-year contract, but the deal is in line with the rookie pay scale determined by the NBA's collective bargaining agreement.

Mike Dunleavy, completing a fourth losing season as coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, disputed a broadcast report yesterday that he will be fired after the season. "It's not true. I'm still the coach. I'm still here," Dunleavy said after the Bucks' 111-103 road victory over the Charlotte Hornets. The team is 25-55 this season. Milwaukee station WITI-TV, quoting an unidentified source, said Dunleavy had been told he will be dismissed, and the announcement could come Monday.

Don't simply consider the 23 games in which Derek Strong played for the Milwaukee Bucks last season. Factor in all the hours coach Mike Dunleavy spent with him one-on-one, working diligently on his footwork, his moves to the basket, his positioning for rebounding. Dunleavy, who is also the Bucks' vice president of basketball operations, liked what he saw. Liked it enough to tender Strong, a restricted free agent, a $250,000 qualifying offer, the procedure necessary for the Bucks to retain a right of first refusal against offers from other teams.

Mike Dunleavy was fired as coach of the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday but was retained as general manager. Dunleavy was 107-221 in four years as coach.

Jermaine O'Neal scored nine points after sitting out for more than 2 months with a knee injury, and the Indiana Pacers beat the visiting Miami Heat, 105-85, last night. O'Neal shot 3-for-4 from the field and 3-for-4 from the free-throw line in 18 minutes. He had missed 33 straight games with a bone bruise, and the Pacers went 12-21 during that stretch. "I didn't feel as rusty as I thought I would be," O'Neal said. "The tempo of the game was probably a lot less than what we've had in practice over the last couple days, so I think that really helped.

These were not your 76ers. This was a team caught in the swirl of a hectic evening. This was a team that needed to plant its feet for a moment, just long enough to defeat the Indiana Pacers at the Wachovia Center last night.

Like leaving the doctor's office with a lollipop, the Sixers snagged what they could from an awkward situation, defeating Indiana, 99-94.

The 76ers are headed for their first loss of the off-season today when the Milwaukee Bucks match an offer sheet on restricted free-agent forward Derek Strong.

According to Mike Carey, Strong's agent, they will complete the paperwork today.
