Thick documents with tiny letters go skidding back and forth across varnish-slick tabletops. Kwame Brown's name will finally be written on one of those documents, and pushed across a table, the Washington Wizards having concluded that it's worth it at almost any price to get rid of him.

    A deal for Brown is not official yet. It's still a negotiation and the clause police haven't signed off on it, but it appears the Wizards are so eager to trade their former No.1 draft pick that they will swap him to the Los Angeles Lakers in a bargain deal. In return, they will get swingman Caron Butler (10th overall pick in 2002) and point guard Chucky Atkins, who will turn 31 next month. There are a lot of swingmen and playmakers in the league. There are not many 7-foot top draft picks.</div>
