Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points.

• The Philadelphia 76ers coaching search could go on until after Summer League in mid-July. So pull up a chair and get comfortable.

Jerry Stackhouse says the NBA Players Association (the union) is in no rush to hire someone to replace Billy Hunter.

• More Shaquille O’Neal talking about Dwight Howard. That never gets old… oh, wait, yes it does.

• Bulls fans thinking Carlos Boozer will be amnestied this summer should be thinking the summer of 2014 instead.

• Isiah Thomas likes the direction the Knicks are headed.

Vladimir Radmanovic wants to continue his NBA career next season. Good luck with that.

• First a word of caution: Take all summer reports of weight gain/loss by players with a grain of salt. Now the report: The Bucks John Henson added 15 pounds so far this offseason.

• In Indiana they are waiting to hear if former GM Larry Bird will return to the franchise. Pacers owner Herb Simon expects to hear a decision from Bird shortly.

• Bucks coach Larry Drew brought Bob Bender and Nick Van Exel up as assistant coaches from his Atlanta staff.

• Here is what new Nuggets GM Tim Connelly said at his introductory press conference.

• Patrick Ewing said he chose Georgetown over North Carolina to play his college ball because there was a Klu Klux Klan rally in NC when he was being recruited.

• This is a fantastic look at the fall of Javaris Crittenton.

• Otis Birdsog, Danny Manning and others former NBA players helped out recent tornado vicitims.

• If you live in Los Angeles, tickets have gone on sale for a charity event, Kobe Up Close hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Thursday, August 15th.  All proceeds from the event will benefit the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation to support their work toward eliminating homelessness.

• The Wizards Jan Vesley in a remake of the Bestie Boys “Sabotage” video? We got that.

We started our fight with Jan Vesely Facebook Identity Thefts from Space Cafe Media on Vimeo.
