A warrant was issued for Appling in February in the Macomb County case after he was allegedly found with heroin during a traffic stop in Warren. Due to that incident, Wayne County Circuit Judge Lawrence Talon ordered Appling to court for a show-cause hearing in March. Show cause hearings carry the possibility of a return to jail or a prison sentence.

Spoelstra has accepted an invitation to join the USA Basketball coaching staff for its Olympic preparations in Las Vegas next month. The Miami Heat coach, who went head-to-head against Popovich and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals, will be involved coaching the U.S. select team — a group of players that will be brought in to practice and scrimmage against the Olympic roster.
“I really just want to be a part of the program,” Spoelstra said. “I’m always pushing myself to get better in the offseasons; I go visit people and all that stuff. This is going to be a basketball immersion. I mean, the dinners, the team meetings … for where I am right now in my career, I think this is the perfect thing for a summer of development.”
