P.J. Hairston to work out for Sixers

Former North Carolina shooting guard and Texas Legends (NBA D-League) player P.J. Hairston will work out for the Sixers on June 11, his agent, Juan Murrow, confirmed Monday night. The franchise has seven picks for the NBA draft, scheduled for June 26 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He is projected to be a late first-round pick. (Philadelphia Daily News)

The $15 North Carolina Tar Heels

At each position, the players are ranked 1-5, with each given a dollar value between $5 and $1 and it's your task to choose one player at each position for a $15 starting five. There are no bonus points for saving money for a bench as we're not playing a real game, so, spend right up to the cap. So, after careful consideration and some serious gnashing of teeth, we present the $15 dollar North Carolina Tar Heels. (WRAL Sports Fan)

P.J. Hairston riding on D-League updraft

P.J. Hairston is a volume scorer, and that’s precisely what he put on display as a member of the Dallas Mavericks’ D-League affiliate. But in the process of reinserting himself into the June 26 draft conversation — he’s expected to work out for the Celtics on Tuesday — Hairston may have also shown the way for others who lose faith in the tried and true college method.

Rasheed Wallace not retained as Pistons assistant coach

The Detroit Pistons announced Friday afternoon that franchise favorite Rasheed Wallace would not be retained as an assistant coach. Wallace — along with assistants Henry Bibby and Bernard Smith — will not be retained.

Lakers player reviews: Kendall Marshall

It’s amazing to look back at the season and realize that at one point Kendall Marshall led the league in 3-point accuracy. With his unconventional release, Marshall deserves credit for adjusting to his limitations by attempting shots well beyond the 3-point line to allow himself enough time to get his shots off, but eventually his skill level came back to the norm.

Eric Montross with the assist

Eric Montross, who offers his basketball expertise on the Tar Heels Sports Network, spoke about how he never had any grand dream about his son playing college or pro ball like he did. Yet Montross said it took him a while to realize that he actually had to verbalize that to his kid, who was feeling pressure along those lines after wrongly assuming he was in one of those unfortunate like-father-like-son deals.

James Michael McAdoo works out for Sixers

North Carolina's James Michael McAdoo worked out with the Philadelphia 76ers yesterday. McAdoo averaged 14.2 points and 6.8 rebounds as a junior with the Tar Heels. The former McDonald's All-American MVP was a two-time All-ACC second-team honoree. His draft range is considered late in the second round. (Philadelphia Daily News)

2013-2014 Clippers Exit Interviews: Reggie Bullock

Of the 11 players who began and ended the season on the Clippers roster, none played fewer minutes than rookie Reggie Bullock. The 25th pick in the 2013 draft, coming onto a deep team that was hoping and planning to compete for a championship, there was never going to be much of a role for Bullock. Nor did it help that Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley were ahead of him on the depth chart at small forward. (Clips Nation)

It's Official: UNC Didn't Win an ACC Title in 2013-14

UNC last chance to snag a title dissipated Friday night in Greensboro when the Tar Heel baseball team was officially eliminated from ACC Championship contention via a 3-2 loss to Virginia.

Rick Fox: I'd love to coach Knicks

He hasn’t been offered the job, but Rick Fox said he would welcome the opportunity to coach the Knicks. Still, he believes that Phil Jackson is “the best guy” to be head coach. "I'm hoping -- I keep saying to Phil Jackson -- he needs to coach the team. He's the best guy for it. He's the holy grail of coaches,” Fox said. Fox played under Jackson in Los Angeles and won three titles with him. (ESPN.com)

A Look Ahead: Point Guard

In Marcus Paige, Nate Britt, Stilman White, and Joel Berry, the Tar Heels are going to have four players who are all capable of entering a game and giving the UNC offense a chance to be highly productive. But how they play defensively could be the biggest factor in exactly how this quartet winds up helping the Tar Heels in the coming season. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Coaching Michael Jordan

Roy Williams: "The first time I ever saw (Michael Jordan) was the summer before his senior year in high school. I told Eddie Fogler, our other assistant coach at that time, that I had just seen the best 6'4" high school player I’d ever witnessed. None of us had any idea that he was going to develop into the greatest player who’s ever played the game. You know, we’d like to say we knew, but we didn’t." (Newsweek)
