Also, 10 years later, the NBA has not experienced another event as devastating as the brawl — a credit to the league's response. "Out of a horrible incident like this," said Stu Jackson, former NBA Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations, "some positive changes came about. As bad as the incident was, it was also an opportunity to define who we were as a league, as teams and players, and make a statement that this type of incident wouldn't be tolerated. I think all we could expect of ourselves at the time was that we address the situation appropriately and move forward." USA Today Sports

Former NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson is joining NBA TV, providing analysis on rules, discipline and other areas that he oversaw in the league office. He also will take questions from fans on Twitter and give his insights on NBA.com. Jackson left his position on Aug. 1 after more than 13 years at the league, where he was in charge of all matters relating to play on the court. He said moving into broadcasting will give him a chance to stay involved. "It's something that it gives me a platform to talk about issues surrounding the NBA which are near to me," Jackson said. "It's a good way to obviously be out there and still be a part of the NBA." Boston Herald

In an effort to lift itself from the dysfunction and ineffectiveness of the Billy Hunter-Derek Fisher regime, the NBA players association has spent the past month identifying four candidates to succeed Hunter as executive director. Led by 18-year veteran Jerry Stackhouse, the NBPA has narrowed its options to former NBA coach and league executive Stu Jackson, Pistons legend and former NBA coach Isiah Thomas, former Madison Square Garden executive Steve Mills and Charlotte Bobcats president Fred Whitfield, FOXSports.com has learned. Sports attorney David Cornwell is said to be a longshot candidate. “I’m totally denying we are down to those four prospects,” Stackhouse told me Sunday afternoon. “Those are just four well-known guys, guys who know our business, guys who have ideas we wanted to hear from. They are not the only guys we want the search firm to vet. I haven’t even had a chance to talk with Fred Whitfield yet. I was planning to do that on Monday.” FOXSports.com

The committee is also recommending that a new rule be put in place to prevent players from standing out of bounds on offense in halfcourt sets. Jackson said this is an increasing trend that they have seen this season, with players on offense standing out of bounds in half-court offense in an effort to suck the perimeter defense further away from the paint and create better spacing. Under the proposed change, any player committing what would be a new infraction would be whistled for a violation, and the ball would change possession. Jackson said this wouldn't apply to a player who runs out of bounds while curling around a screen or trying to separate from a defender, only when he is stationary and standing out of bounds during a halfcourt offensive set.
