 DETROIT (AP) - Chris Webber is as unsure about his future in the NBA now as he was when the Detroit Pistons were eliminated in the Eastern Conference finals earlier this month.
``It's only been a few weeks, so honestly I'm just resting and letting things happen,'' the five-time All-Star said in a telephone interview. ``I just don't know what I want to do yet and I have to be fair to everyone possibly involved.''
Webber provided a boost to Detroit's starting lineup when he was signed in midseason following his release by the Philadelphia 76ers. Then, his uneven play in the playoffs seemed to frustrate him.
``I don't want to be in a situation where I'm just going through the motions, letting everything be said about me,'' the 34-year-old center said earlier this month after Detroit was knocked out by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Webber, who can become a free agent Sunday, is involved with a pair of off-the-court projects to keep his mind occupied while he delays a decision about his career.
He hosted a news conference Tuesday at the Charles W. Wright Museum of African American History, where his collection of artifacts and documents will be on display from Thursday through Sept. 28.
The exhibit ``Celebrating Heritage'' includes Phillis Wheately's first edition ``Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral'' that was published in 1773, and a postcard Malcolm X sent to author Alex Haley.
``Those are my personal favorites,'' Webber said. ``It's really a treat when eyes light up, especially little girls, when they see the second novel by a woman and the first by an African American woman. Hopefully, the entire collection that has been in a few other cities will help inspire some children in my hometown at the largest African American museum.''
Webber is also planning a July 20-22 fundraiser for his foundation, ``C-Webb's Bada Bling Celebrity Weekend,'' in Las Vegas.
``Bada Bling is all about having a good time for a good cause,'' he said. ``There's going to a lot people listening to music, playing golf, getting involved in a poker tournament, all to help keep my foundation going strong.''
