Latrell Sprewell, the Knicks' exiled small forward, made a cameo appearance on Friday at the team's practice facility in Greenburgh, the New York Daily News reported Saturday. It marked the first time Sprewell had been to the training site since the Knicks fined him $250,000 and ordered him to stay away from the team for an indefinite period.

The team refused to comment on Sprewell's scheduling of a news conference Monday, at which he might discuss his status with the team and pending libel lawsuit against a local paper.

CAVALIERS: Guard Vonteego Cummings was waived, less than a month after he was signed as a free agent.
