Walton, the 6-foot-ll, three- time All-American and two- time Player of the Year from UCLA, signed a five-year contract estimated between $2 million and $3 million with the Portland Trail Blazers earlier this month. So after Portland officially names Walton as its first selection in the draft, to be conducted by a conference call with each of the 18 franchises being hooked into the NBA office in New York, the remainder of the clubs will begin announcing their picks. Philadelphia, having to settle for the second choice, has been contemplating picking from among centers Elmore, of Maryland; Burleson, of North Carolina State; Barnes, of Providence, and Shumate, of N o t r e Darne, or forward Campy Russell, a hardship case from Michigan. Reportedly, they are leaning toward the 6-10 Elmore. Then, Seattle, having acquired the No. 3 pick from Cleveland in a trade last week for veteran guard Dick Snyder, likely will choose the 7-4 Burleson, the tallest player in collegiate ranks. That would leave the 6-9 Shumate and the 6-7 Barnes, both All-Americans, for the next two teams, Phoenix and Houston. They will be followed by: Atlanta; Cleveland, picking in Seattle's spot; Buffalo: Atlan- ta, getting the first choice from the new New Orleans franchise in the deal for Pete Maravich; Golden State; Los Angeles; Washington, formerly Capital; New York; Detroit: Chicago; Boston, the 1974 champion, and Milwaukee, the team with the best re-' cord last season. The order was determined by the 1973-74 standings, with the clubs picking in inverse order of finish. There will be 10 rounds of drafting, with a maximum of 180 players to be selected. Then, the teams later will have a chance in a supplementary draft to choose players not previously picked, and the b i d d i n g w a r b e t w e e n t h e leagues will commence in earnest. The ABA conducted its draft last month. Among the other highly coveted players expected to be high draft choices are centers Leonard Gray of Long Beach ; State and Mike Sojourner of Utah. In addition to Russell, the well-regarded forwards include All-American Keith Wilkes of UCLA, Bill Knight of Pitt, Al Eberhard of Missouri, Maurice Lucas of Marquette, Scott Wedman of Colorado, Leonard Robinson of Tennessee State and Tom McMillen of Maryland. Among the top guards are Tom Henderson of Hawaii, Brian Winters of South Carolina, Kevin Stacom of Providence, Dennis DuVal of Syracuse, Lloyd B a t t s of Cincinnati, Clarence Walker of West Georgia, Henry Williams of Jacksonville and Gary Brokaw of Notre Dame. Whisenant, who then put Moses on the phone. "I'll be there," Moses said. "I guess I'll go to Hawaii some other time." Moses had planned to jet to Honolulu this weekend, at the invitation of the University of Hwaii, with a stopover in Los Angeles to visit the University of Southern California campus. Up to now he has visited 18 colleges, including North Carolina State, Maryland, North Carolina, Houston, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Eastern Kentucky, Detroit, Minnesota, Washington, Virginia Commonwealth and, of course, New Mexico where he was accorded a motorcade. "I want to make my choice pretty soon, maybe by the first week of June," he says. "I've got to get this over with." But then the Utah Stars, who selected him in the American Basketball Assn. draft, will talk with him. "We just want to give him Pinch Hitters Meet The Charleston Charlies' Pinch Hitters Club will meet Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the American Legion building at 415 Dickinson St. Roy Nace is president of the club. Invitations are extended to fans who would like to take membership in the club. an alternative," says Arnold Ferrin, the Stars' general manager. "Before we drafted him, we didn't predict that he would to go college because of his marks. If he were to go to UCLA, where he would really learn how to play basketball, fine. "But if he were to stay in a poor educational environment for one or two years, then turn pro, he might be better off joining us now. We could put him in a college here for his education and we would work with him in practice. In two or three years, we might have a great center. We spoke to him a few weeks ago but we haven't talked dollars." * * * HIS HIGH SCHOOL coach. Carl Peal, has suggested that Moses ignore the Stars' eventual offer. "My p r i m a r y advice to Moses," says Peal, "is that he go to college, not to the pros. He's not really physically for the pros. He's 215 pounds, but he needs more weight and strength. He needs to fill out." Moses always had height. Because of it, he was forbidden to play center in grammar school. "On offense," recalls Harry Marsh, his chronicler on the Petersburg Progress-Index, "he had to play outside the key. He wasn't allowed near the boards because he was so much bigger than the other kids. But outside, he learned to dribble and to shoot from out there. He can dribble behind his back. He doesn't really want to play center in college. H e ' d r a t h e r play forward. He's agile enough." Moses led Petersburg to two Virginia state championships with identical 25-0 won-lost records. "And last summer in the rec leagues here," Marsh re- c a l l s , "he p l a y e d in two leagues -- one for kids of high school age, the other for kids of college age. Sometimes the schedule called for him to play two games the same night, one at 7. the other at 9. and he would score maybe 44 points in one game and" 42 in the other." * * *· MOSES LIVES w i t h h i s mother, who works in a nursing home. His father moved to Houston, Tex. several years ago. "He needs the money," Peal says, "but the money will be there when he's really ready to turn pro someday." The m o n e y is p r o b a b l y there now, if Moses were to accept one of the under-the-table payments that undoubtedly have been offered to him. Fear of an investigation by the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. is whispered to be one reason why N.C. State no longer is pursuing him as seriously as before.He has said.
