"Joe-Max Moore is -someone who we are interested in," Wizards general manager Curt Johnson said on the Everton Web site. "He's a great player and he has local ties to the Midwest and Oklahoma.

Moore hasn't appeared in any games this season for Everton, and the team did not apply for a new permit even though seven months remain on his contract. Moore has 24 goals in 100 appearances for the U.S. team, second in scor-ing'behind Eric Wynalda's record 32 goals.

Simon is scheduled to defend his title in March, but WBO officials are awaiting the outcome of legal proceedings. According to witnesses, Simon's car crashed into the Belgians' pickup truck.
