Chris Webber and his partners have submitted a letter of interest to the NBA in hopes of buying the Atlanta Hawks.
Webber would be the face of the group and has a good relationship with current NBA players. If his group does land the Hawks, the hope is that Webber would be able to attract some star talent to the ATL. Danny Ferry is on leave from the organization and is not expected to regain control of basketball operations after his insensitive racial comments made in June were made public this summer.

The Kings and Chris Webber have "had discussions" about a role with the team, but he is not a candidate for the GM job.

It's not clear what Webber's role would be if he were brought into the fold, but it's interesting to note if nothing else. Vivek Ranadive is determined to make the Kings relevant again under his ownership.

The Kings owners, Joe and Gavin Maloof, continue to push for shorter guaranteed contracts in the NBA, citing Chris Webber's max deal in 2001 (seven years, $122 million) as an example of a franchise-killing contract.

Their point is taken, even though nobody forced the Kings to pay Webber $122 million. The Maloofs are not willing to sacrifice the season as they need momentum to rebuild the fan base and get a new arena built in Sacramento.

Chris Webber, still rehabbing his injured left knee, officially announced on Tuesday that he is retiring from the game of basketball.

Webber, a five-time All-Star, is hoping to stay involved with professional basketball and is interested in being a television commentator and analyst. He is remembered as one of the best passing big men of his era, a skill regularly on display during his best years as a member of the Sacramento Kings.

ESPN.com's Mark Stein reports that Chris Webber is about to announce his retirement.

Webber, now 35 years old, hoped to have a successful final run with Golden State, where his career began. Unfortunately, he never fully recovered from microfracture knee surgery. Webber averaged just 14 minutes in nine games with the Warriors this season.

Warriors center Chris Webber, who strained his knee on February 29th, is not doing any on-court rehabilitation and could miss the rest of the regular season.

"It gets more difficult the longer we go," coach Don Nelson said. "Now that we're down in the stretch drive, we'll probably have to play the way we've been playing (without Webber)." C-Webb wasn't providing fantasy value anyway, while owners of Al Harrington, Andris Biedrins and Mickael Pietrus should be pleased by this development.

Chris Webber (sore knee) has rejoined his Warriors teammates, but will miss his sixth straight game on Thursday and has no specific timetable for a return to action.

"We got to make sure the knee is sound and the swelling is down," coach Don Nelson said. "Then he's got to get back in some shape. I don't know how much he can do at this point." 15 minutes is the maximum playing time Webber will receive even if he makes a full recovery, so don't give him a second thought in fantasy leagues.

Chris Webber remains in Atlanta rehabbing his sore left knee. Warriors coach Don Nelson had no new information on his status, except to say that Webber is still combating swelling.

Consider Webber's season finished for fantasy purposes -- he is listed as day-to-day, but more realistically he is out indefinitely.

Warriors coach Don Nelson recently said there is no timeline for Chris Webber's return from his sore knee. Webber will miss his fourth straight game on Saturday.

"That microfracture surgery is a tough one," Nelson said. "A lot of guys have bit the dust on that one." There was no indication that C-Webb is done for the season, but his biggest contribution to fantasy leagues has been (and will continue to be) muddying up the Warriors' front-court rotations.

Chris Webber will miss Wednesday's game at Charlotte and the following two road games. He is staying in Atlanta and rehabilitating his sore left knee.

Webber recently had an MRI which showed no new damage to the knee, but he is still concerned. Mysterious pain is never a good thing and C-Webb's age makes this even more ominous. Brandan Wright, Al Harrington and Matt Barnes will all play extra minutes for the moment.

Chris Webber could miss the Warriors entire road trip, which ends on Saturday, as he attempts to rehabilitate his sore left knee.

Webber's absence shifted Brandan Wright to center and Matt Barnes to power forward, while Al Harrington came off the bench. We'd be surprised if the Warriors were coached by anyone other than Don Nelson. This arrangement is quite temporary, as the return of either Webber or Andris Biedrins (appendectomy - could play Friday) will require another lineup shift. Webber will stay behind in Atlanta to get treatment on his knee.

Chris Webber will undergo an MRI to determine the cause of left knee pain that forced him out of Sunday's game.

"Friday I tweaked it, and then [Saturday] I felt it at practice and [Sunday] I felt it," Webber said. "We'll see how it goes." Uh oh. A recurrent knee injury is bad news for an aging big man, though it could be very good news for owners of Al Harrington and Andris Biedrins.

Chris Webber lasted just eight minutes on Sunday, finishing with one point and one rebound before leaving with a left knee injury.

He played fairly well in his last game, but this injury is what most of us have been waiting for. We should know more about Webber's knee on Monday, but he wasn't doing enough to be in lineups anyway. His dramatic signing is probably going to go down as a non-event this season, especially if the Warriors can't hold on to grab the seventh or eighth spot in the Western playoff race. If he is going to miss time, Brandan Wright and Al Harrington will see a boost in value.

With Andris Biedrins out for a couple weeks after an emergency appendectomy, Chris Webber's fantasy value is very intriguing.

Webber, who is already starting, could be turned loose over the next two weeks and see his minutes per game double, approaching 30 per. Other Warriors will have increased roles, but picking up Webber right now in a deep league could pay off over the rest of the season.

Recent acquisition Chris Webber was inactive for the Warriors on Wednesday.

Webber recorded a dismal eight points and 10 rebounds in his first three games with the team, all starts. It's possible he'll return to the starting lineup after the All-Star break, but Don Nelson didn't think it was a good idea to let him run with the Suns tonight. Hmmm. Webber off the bench? Great call, Nellie.
