A league source told CSNNE.com that two teams that might be made available in the near future are the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic.

Getting to the NBA was only part of the professional basketball dream Leon Powe had while growing up. Powe, who was in town representing the '08 Celtics championship team during the Boston Red Sox opening ceremonies on Friday, wants to someday own an NBA team. "I always wanted to do it," Powe told CSNNE.com prior to Boston's 111-102 loss to Philadelphia. "I had a dream when I was younger to make it to the NBA, and be a businessman." Although there is not an NBA team currently for sale, Powe said he is in the process of putting together a group of potential investors in case one does hit the open market soon. CSNNE.com

I will deal with the consequences and I apologize again to my fans for that." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Asked if he could overcome a suspension to start next season, Sanders said, "Yeah I could. It's just more motivation to work harder. It's something negative to deal with. But the recipe doesn't change for me. I'm just as excited for the summer. "It's been two opposite sides of the spectrum in a lot of ways. Two extremes. A consistent season would be great. I'll be better from this. I've learned a lot already from this year. I'm going to continue to learn. I hate that this is a negative impact on my fans and my family or the organization."
