Lester Conner landed on his feet pretty well after not having his contract renewed by O'Brien last month. Conner is expected to sign a three-year contract to be coach Larry Drew's lead assistant down in Atlanta. Conner will coach Atlanta's summer league team in Vegas. Here's a text message I got from somebody in the league about Conner. "(He) moved up in the standings by about 15 games." Indianapolis Star
