Remember all the uproar over the auctioning of the jersey Mike Piazza wore in the first game back in New York after 9/11? Well, now the same auction house is selling the "NYPD" helmet Piazza wore from that game. The announcement does say that 50 percent of the buyer's premium will be donated to the charity Tuesday's Children. Piazza's jersey from that Sept. 21, 2001 game eventually was purchased by some Mets minority owners before auction for $365,000 in May and will be displayed at museums.

The guard figures to garner an offer much higher than $2.7 million from competing teams next month. He averaged 10.3 points and 2.7 rebounds in 26 minutes a game last season, numbers that make the 24-year-old attractive on the open market, particularly with the increase in cap space this summer.
