Swap stories are in abundance this year, with a number of high-profile players involved. All-NBA center Hakeem Olajuwon, who has had recurring contract problems with the Houston Rockets, is the biggest star on the auction block. Miami reportedly has offered center Rony Seikaly in return, but balked when the Rockets also wanted the Heat to include shooting guard Glen Rice or point guard Steve Smith.
* Game 4 between the Bulls and Blazers received a 16.0 rating and 29 audience share, a 5 percent increase over last year's Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Bulls and Lakers. But the four-game average for the 1992 matchup is down 5 percent from the 1991 finals.
Bulls coach Phil Jackson says [Perdue]'s lack of activity against Portland is due to matchup problems. "When the Blazers go to the bench, Cliff Robinson is too quick for Perdue to guard," Jackson said. "Scott Williams is a better match for us."
