Charlie Villanueva: On his decision process of choosing the Mavericks over the Clippers: "To be honest, when I was with coach [Rick] Carlisle it just seemed so real. He was speaking from the heart. That's what I loved about him. Obviously, his resume speaks for itself. Just sitting down to talk to him man to man. I was there for two days and he personally worked me out both days. It just showed how much he cared about his players and wants his players to be successful. The thing that he always said was like, if I did decide to come here that he would make sure that I would become a better player. Not to take nothing away from what the Clippers and Doc Rivers is doing, but it just felt right with Rick. It was just a feeling. I went with a feeling in my gut and I feel like I made the right move." Dallas Morning News

Clippers' skipper Doc Rivers would prefer a NBA Championship but he'll settle for a boatload of cash ... he just scored an easy million after unloading his L.A. condo a year after buying. Rivers picked up the swanky Beverly West pad for just over $5.5M last year and 15 months later ... he passed it off for $6.5M. TMZ.com

Though there's not a strong sense that the Clippers' executive machinery is well-oiled at present, there's still a healthy respect for Rivers' powers of persuasion. He might not spawn a managerial tree like the Spurs, but his arrival in Los Angeles guaranteed Paul's return. If every couple of years he can take Ubuntu into a conference room and sell a top-15 player on his vision, then who cares whether he ceded operational directives to Wohl, Eastman or Sacks? ESPN.com
