    I am looking in getting a lens for my Cannon 10D and I current would like a
    better wide angle.. I am typically shooting with a flash and the gym is
    small so the ability to move away for better shot is not an option.
    Typically I am with 10 to 15 feet left or right of the basket and right on
    the court line.

    Current lens is a 28 to 135 ultrasonic Canon 3.5 to 5.6 Any suggestion on
    something that would give me a real wide angle on digital...

    How about a Canon 17-40 F4 L lens? It's not cheap, but it's good glass, I'm
    very happy with it on my 300D. The 17-40 is a lot wider on the low side than
    your 28-135, and probably a lot sharper too.
