Question: How come the Bee doesn't track player movements during the off season? The fans still want to know what they are up to.

Answer: We do to a certain extent, but I can oblige as best I can. Kevin Martin has spent the past few weeks in his hometown of Zanesville, Ohio, and is now in Clearwater, Fla., with his personal coach David Thorpe. Mike Bibby has been in Sacramento quite a bit, and was even seen working out at a Gold’s Gym at the same time as Ron Artest, and - get this - former Kings coach Eric Musselman. Bibby has a local basketball camp coming up that I should have more details on soon. Artest, by the way, has traveled from Sacramento to New York and Indiana – even working out at the Pacers’ practice facility. Quincy Douby, I was told, spent some time in his hometown of Coney Island. Brad Miller, as always, is probably fishing and hunting on his property in Kendalville, Ind. Kenny Thomas has been in Sacramento, as has Shareef Abdur-Rahim. And while I don’t know the whereabouts of Francisco Garcia, he’s apparently getting more and more comfortable in the area as he bought a new house. That’s all I can think of for now.
