SEATTLE, JULY 23 -- There has been a lot of talk about how much appearance money certain high-profile athletes received to participate in the Goodwill Games, but swimmer Matt Biondi has made it clear how much he got: nothing.

"Ted Turner paid the federations, who in turn paid the top athletes," Biondi said. "U.S. Swimming kept the money. We got nothing."

Swimming officials say the money is going into the national governing body's sports programs, but Biondi wonders what is going on when people like sprinter Carl Lewis make a reported $25,000, heptathlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee receives about $20,000, and figure skater Jill Trenary gets what is believed to be $30,000.

"We're still living in the '70s in swimming," Biondi said. "I had to have seven medals to get {publicity and endorsements} out of my sport." Dreaming and Talking

Toni Kukoc, a 6-foot-9 Yugoslavian basketball player and the second-round draft choice of the Chicago Bulls, said he won't join the NBA for at least the next two years -- if at all.

"It's my dream to be with the NBA," he said, "but it is not my dream to sit on the bench." . . .

On the subject of basketball, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, coach of the U.S. men's team here, said Seton Hall's P.J. Carlesimo, his assistant, is responsible for scouting the opponent.

"P.J. does most of the scouting and he has to know four different languages," Krzyzewski said. "Unfortunately, English is not one of them." On a Hot Streak

East German Ilke Wyludda won the women's discus and then ran through the bottom row of bleachers at Husky Stadium after the medal ceremony, occasionally hugging fans and mugging for photographers.

For Wyludda, 21, the Goodwill Games triumph was her fourth victory in a week. She won competitions in Barcelona last Monday, Bologna on Wednesday and London on Friday. She then flew 19 hours, counting some delays, to get to Seattle Sunday at 2 a.m. She competed later that afternoon and won with a throw of 223 feet 4 inches.

"The political changes allow me to do all these competitions," Wyludda said. "Also, I'd like to make a stronger name for myself." On the Losing End

Ted Turner said that Turner Broadcasting System Inc. could lose as much as $26 million on the Goodwill Games -- doubling earlier projections from the company.

Asked if losses this summer would equal the $26 million shortfall from the 1986 Goodwill Games in Moscow, the TBS board chairman said the deficit would be "in that range." He declined to detail the reasons for the losses at the annual TBS shareholders' meeting yesterday.

But Turner was upbeat about the international athletic event that started Friday and ends Aug. 5, saying it is increasing world exposure for TBS and helping the Atlanta-based company market its Cable News Network and other services abroad.

"We're very happy with the way things are going in the Goodwill Games," Turner said after the session.

The company's 1989 annual report listed $266 million in total losses from cable network operations, movie and video enterprises, and two professional sports teams -- the Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Hawks.
