AROUND & ABOUT

Shawn Kemp, a no-show at training camp, was expected to be at practice for the Seattle SuperSonics today after a 22-day absence.

Kemp, 26, said in a statement issued three weeks ago that he didn't report to training camp because he was going through "renewal." He alluded to personal and financial problems.

Kemp reportedly was unhappy because his $3 million salary means he will be only the sixth-highest paid player on the Sonics this season.
