Jim Cleamons is withdrawing his name from contention to coach the Puerto Rico National team, agent Giovanni Funiciello told HoopsHype.com. "Cleamons is pursuing other opportunities that basically would have made it a conflict of interest. He wishes the federation best of luck in their search for a coach."

Cleamons, who won the 1972 championship as a player, served as an assistant coach and helped guide the Lakers to five titles in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009 and 2010.
