New Great Britain coach Joe Prunty has begun to contact prospective recruits for his first squad this summer, despite delays in finalising his bench staff for EuroBasket. However MVP can reveal that Charlotte Bobcats pair Ben Gordon and Byron Mullens are among those on Prunty’s long-list for Slovenia.

As Dunlap led the Bobcats in a morning shootaround on Monday before a victory over the Celtics, Gordon refused Dunlap's request to stop bouncing a ball as the coach spoke, sources said. Before long, Gordon began baiting Dunlap, telling him that he needed to "humble himself," sources said. Gordan refused to give the ball to Dunlap, and eventually tossed it toward a ball rack, sources said. Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins was in the practice session and ultimately intervened, sources said. "Beyond disrespectful," was how one league source described the scene. Yahoo! Sports
