CAGE TRADE:
Celtics acquire Silas
from Suns for Scott
PHOENIX (A) - Jerry Colangelo, general manager of the
Phoenix Suns. said yesterday Paul Silas has been traded to
Boston in exchange for National Basketball Association rights to
Charlie Scott.
Scott, formerly with the Virginia Squires of the American
Basketball Association, officially signed with the Suns last
week when Colangelo negotiated an out-of-court settlement on
Virginia's claims to the high-scoring guard.
General manager Red Auerbach of the Celtics claimed Silas
yesterday saying when the settlement was reached last week,
"Phoenix owed us Silas and no one but Silas."
The Suns had been trying to talk Auerbacb into accepting
somebody other than Silas as payment for Sott, according to
sources close to the Suns.
"Silas won't be a member of the Celtics until I assign his
contract to Boston," Colangelo said, "but Red has obviously
closed all the doors. He is being very specific and very em-
phatic on what he wants.
"The only way Silas could have remained with the Suns
after the Scott settlement was if Red changed his mind."' Col-
angelo said.

WIMBELDON NEARS
Smith nets two wins

LONDON () -- Stan Smith
moved from Mexican clay to
English grass yesterday and
won two matches in straight
sets to start his brief buildup
for an assault on the Wimble-
don title.
The big tennis star from
Pasadena, Calif., beat Antonio
Zugarelli of Italy 7-5 6-4 and
Frew McMillan of South Africa
6-4, 6-4 to reach the third round
of the London Grass Courts
Championships at the Queen's
Club.
Smith flew in late Monday
night after helping the United
States to a 5-0 hammering of

Mexico in the Davis Cup. He
got up yesterday morning to
find he was the top seed both at
the Queen's Club and at Wim-
bledon, which starts next Mon-
day.
He had one hour's practice
with Tom Gorman, another
member of the U.S. team in
Mexico, and then both went
straight on court to play their
first matches. Neither had
played on grass since Forest
Hills last August.
Gorman of Seattle, Wash.,
didn't stand up to the or-
deal so well. He beat Syd Ball
of Australia 6-3, 6-4 and went

through most of his second
round match against Paolo
Bertolucci of Italy, but then
pulled out because of back
trouble.
"It's not all thai bad,"' Gor'-
man said as he relaxed in a hot
bath later. "But it was hurt-
ing me and I felt it would be
pretty crazy to go on and risk
aggravating it. Wimbledon
means a lot to me. and it's so
close."
Bertolucci was leading 6-2, 2-
6. 8-7 when Gorman retired.
The American's back troubled
him throughout last year's
Wimbledon, when he upset Rod
Laver and lost to Smith in the
semifinals.
Smith, trying to adjust him-
self to the grass here, had
trouble returning servicerin
both his matches. lHis service
and volleying looked very sharp.
Another member of the U.S.
team in Mexico, Erik Van Dii-
len of San Mateo, Calif., won a
match and lost one. He over-
came Nicola Pietrangeli, 38-
year-old Italian veteran. 6-4,
6-3 but then Stan Matthews of
Britain eliminated him 6-3, 2-6,
6-2.
CLARK GE.AEBNER of New
Vork City, who was surprising-
ly omitted from the Wimbledon
seedings list announced earlier
yesterday.
Other Americans reaching
the third round were 44-year-
old Pancho Gonzales of Las
Vegas, Nev.. Roscoe Tanner of
Lookout Mountain. Tenn. and
Stanford University, and Brian
Gottfied of Fort Lauderdale,
Fla.
Chris Evert. 17-year-old hero-
ine of America's Wightman Cup
triumph of last weekend, play-
ed her first tournament match
in Britain and defeated Marina
Krozina of'the Soviet Union 6-4,
6-1.
The little girl from Fort Lau-
derdale, Fla., found herself fac-
ing a pretty Russian blonde
win playeda patient ba eline
game similar to her own. It took
the American quite a while to
wear her opponent down.
