Mark Price Rumors
Sources told ESPN that Price has been offered a five-year deal and is mulling whether to accept it. Price would replace Alan Major, who parted ways with the school last week after five seasons in which he took a pair of medical leave of absences. Major was 67-70 personally, and the school was 75-81 in his time at the school.
Former Georgia Tech star and NBA point guard Mark Price has been offered the UNC Charlotte job, sources close to the situation said. Price, 51, is currently an assistant coach in the NBA with the Charlotte Hornets. He was a standout at Georgia Tech from 1982 to 1986, and he played 12 years in the NBA, where he was a four-time All-Star.

The hitch and sidespin are gone and Kidd-Gilchrist now has a release point that doesn’t come on his descent from the jump. The result?

LeBron James’ legacy with the Cleveland Cavaliers will always be complicated because of his decision to go to Miami but his statistical impact on the franchise is unmistakable. James stamped his name in the Cavs’ record books once again on Tuesday, passing Mark Price for the franchise lead in assists, dishing out his 4,207th while wearing a Cleveland uniform.
