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. But on Friday, Powe's focus wasn't as much on future ownership. Instead, he was more locked into enjoying his time back in Boston, a city that's still near and dear to him. CSNNE.com

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

Vucevic, who went into Saturday’s game in Utah third on the team in scoring (14 ppg.) and first in rebounding (10.8 rpg.), said he addressed his teammates Friday at practiced and apologized for getting thrown out of the game. Vucevic said in the future he will focus more on his play and worry less about the officiating. ``I apologized to them that it wasn’t smart on my part, which it wasn’t,’’ he said. ``I learned from it. I kind of got carried away. I even surprised myself because I really don’t do that. I just need to focus on what happens with the team and what I can control.’’ NBA.com

It's a little late in Jackson's 11-title legacy as a coach to start proving he can make decisions better than the front-office guys he's loathed (Jerry Krause in Chicago) or lorded it over (Jerry West and Mitch Kupchak in L.A.). Jackson, through Sam Vincent, floated the same sweetheart deal a few years ago to run the Magic, occasionally from Orlando, although it never got anywhere. Orlando Sentinel
