We hear that the Wizards, who have had it with Brendan Haywood's inconsistency and moodiness, are eyeing Nuggets forward-center Marcus Camby. Makes sense, for Camby's gift of swattage (a league-leading 3.3 blocks per game) and defensive-player-of-the-year skills are just what the low-post-challenged Wizards desperately need. Also makes sense because Denver will be millions over the luxury-tax threshold next season with its current roster, and owner Stan Kroenke may not be willing to spend twice that in penalties next season for a team that couldn't get out of the first round. Coming off double microfracture knee surgery, Kenyon Martin is untradable, and while there might be suitors for someone like Reggie Evans, there will more for Camby - whom Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld traded for in 1998 when he was running the Knicks. . . .
If Brian Hill gets the boot from the Magic, who went out meekly in the first round against the Pistons, keep a name under your sombrero: Mark Jackson. The ABC and Yes analyst has made no secret of his desire to become a head coach, and while he'll be an obvious candidate in Indiana, where CEO Donnie Walsh thinks highly of him, we hear Jackson could be a bold choice in the Land of the Mouse, where the Magic are in desperate need of a coach with a player-friendly manner who's willing to push the ball more to get Dwight Howard and company easier touches.
