DETROIT (UPI-The Detroit Pistons traded forward Willie
Norwood to the Phoenix Suns yesterday in exchange for backup
center Earl Williams.
Norwood, a four-year veteran of the National Basketball Asso-
ciation, takes an 8.2 career scoring average and a bad knee with
him to Phoenix.
The 6-foot-7, 220-pound Alcorn A&M product was limited to
just 24 games with the Pistons last season after undergoing
surgery for the removal of bone spurs in his right knee. He
averaged 6.6 points per game.
Williams, a 6-foot-7, 235-pound product of Winston-Salem, pulled
down 456 rebounds last season-a figure that would have almost
made him the second best rebounder on the Pistons, who finished
last in the NBA in that department.
He played just 13 minutes a game for the Suns. Williams
averaged 21 rebounds per game in his senior season of college and
was Phoenix's third-round draft choice.

ST. LOUIS 6I1-The St. Louis Cardinals moved to strengthen
their pitching staff by acquiring tall right-hander Ron Reed from
the Atlanta Braves in exchange for right-hander Elias Sosa and
left-hander Ray Sadecki.
The Cards said the 32-year-old Reed, a nine-season veteran,
will move into their rotation which also includes right-handers
Bob Gibson, Bob Forsch and Lynn McGlothen and left-hander John
Reed, who played in the National Basketball Association with
Detroit, owned a 4-5 record with Atlanta in 10 starts this season
and had compiled a 4.26 earned run average.
NEW YORK (.O')--The New York Nets, 1974 champions of the
American Basketball Association, have traded forward Larry
Kenon and guard Mike Gale to the San Antonio Spurs for center
Kenon, called by Nets Coach Kevin Lougherty "one of the
best rebounders off the offensive board I've ever seen," has played
in each of the club's 84 regular-season games over the past two
seasons, his first two years in the league. He also played in two
The 6-11, 250-pound Nater also has been in the ABA for two
years. He was the league's Rookie of the Year in 1973-74 when he
averaged 14.1 patnts per game and grabbed 998 rebounds with
both Virginia and San Antonto.

On Tuesday night he said he

about joining the pros.
"C'mon Darryl," said a by-

you're gonna do now."
"I got 'til tomorrow to think
about it," said Dawkins.
"Wouldn't you stay up all night
and think about it?"

on the hadship list was 6-8 Bill
Willoughbly from Dwight Mor-

were approved by NBA Commis-
sioner Walter Kennedy included
