Avery Johnson is the new head men's basketball coach at Alabama. At a job that requires not only coaching, but selling recruits and their families, Johnson is resorting back to his old days as Mavericks coach. “I learned so much working with Mark Cuban and working with our staff there and Keith Grant and Donnie Nelson and all those guys, so whether it was in terms of the type of athlete you should try to recruit for your system, hiring the right coaching staff, you know, a lot of the entertainment that the Mavericks provide for the fans at the games,” Johnson told the Tuscaloosa News. “We’re trying to adopt and incorporate a lot of what they do at our games.” Dallas Morning News

Deandre Jordan makes sense here on a lot of levels. He’s a younger, more explosive version of Chandler who should continue to smooth the edges of his defense. Jordan’s agent, Dan Fegan, is close with Mark Cuban. And Jordan is exactly the sort of player who might gamble on a short-term deal to reenter free agency again when the cap leaps. He’ll only turn 27 this summer, he never gets hurt, and he’s already banked more than $40 million from the Clippers. Changing teams on a short-term deal would still cost him some money, but if he times things right, he could reduce the shortfall to the point that it wouldn’t hurt — especially given the tax advantages Texas has over California. It gets trickier for any player who changes teams via a one-year deal, since they forfeit their own Bird rights — limiting the raises their incumbent team could offer. Signing a two- or three-year deal makes it easier. Grantland

"Sounds good, sounds good, until I'm done and that’s the key,’’ Terry said. "I’m not done yet.’’ By his own admission, Terry is just getting started. While the clock says he’s 37 years old and at the tail end of his illustrious career, Terry sees it from a different perspective. Fort Worth Star-Telegram
