"None of them are dying to go over there. They prefer for there to be an NBA season," Bartelstein said. "My message to the players (is) that we need to be aggressive in looking for things. We're not just going to be reckless and take a job we don't think is a good fit, but if there's a job we think is good, we have to think about doing it.
