Real Madrid has a team option on Mejri's contract for next season, but reports in Spain suggest they may not exercise it. The Tunisian center, who was one of the biggest sensations in the Spanish League two years ago with Obradoiro, has not received much playing time this season at star-studded Real Madrid, who's one of the top favorites to win the Euroleague next month. While Mejri is happy with the club, he would rather leave if there are no minutes available for him. HoopsHype

Me: You said a long time ago, you could see yourself finishing your coaching career back in Madrid (Karl coached European powerhouse Real Madrid for two seasons in the late '80s and early '90s). GK: I'm not saying that's out of the question. Two games a week? That excites me. College doesn't excite me, because you just deal with so many nightmares of getting grades, getting them in school, and keeping them eligible. That stuff doesn't turn me on. Dealing with pros, having two or three days to prepare, that's good stuff. That motivates a coach. NBA.com
