Boston coach Doc Rivers would interest the Nets should the Celtics agree to let him out of his current contract, the source said. Jerry Sloan, whom star point guard Deron Williams recently endorsed, is a long-shot candidate. ESPN.com

Already linked to the Milwaukee Bucks Head Coaching gig, Sloan admits he's interested in getting back to roaming the sidelines, but only under the right circumstances and conditions. “According to reports, I'm interested in every job that's out there,” Sloan said. “That's just not the case. I don't like being linked to every opening. If the right situation presented itself, I will look into it.” CSNNW.com

Williams said he “would love” to play again for Jerry Sloan, his old coach in Utah, and when Phil Jackson’s name came up, Williams said, “Who wouldn’t want to play for Phil Jackson?” Regardless of who takes over as head coach, Williams said that after a tumultuous first season in Brooklyn, he and his teammates can take a step forward next year. “We definitely want to improve on this season,” Williams said. “With everything we had, with all the injuries we had, with all the stuff in the media going on with losing a coach, we still finished pretty good. We still finished in the fourth spot [in the East]. New York Post

In an attempt to acquire that final rebound, Davis purposefully shot and missed at his own basket. (By rule, a player cannot be credited with a rebound for a miss on his own goal.) Then things got ugly. Old-school enforcement ensued when Utah's DeShawn Stevenson fouled Davis. Hard. Utah coach Jerry Sloan turned irate, telling reporters afterward, "I was glad that Shawn tried to knock him down. They can put me in jail or whatever they want for saying that, but that's the way it is." The sequence ignited a fierce debate about individual achievement and results in sports. The Cavaliers fined Davis $35,000. Figures around the league denounced him and his selfish style of play. Davis has the advantage of a decade's worth of perspective now. He says he's surprised the stunt has stuck with him, but he also concedes it was all his own doing. Grantland
