Nuggets assign Quincy Miller to NBA Developmental League - Aaron Lopez, denvernuggets.com
This shouldn't surprise anyone. Miller was getting no playing time, and in the few garbage time minutes he received he seemed lost and completely unsure of himself. He needs serious playing time to get further development, and he won't be seeing that on the roster this season.

Ding: Lakers still waiting to feel Howard's inspiration - Kevin Ding, Orange County Register
Snarky column from Kevin Ding about Dwight Howard. Interesting quotes from Mike D'Antoni and Steve Nash. As well as comparing Dwight to Kosta Koufos, and not in a positive way. Also there's a nice quote from Kenneth Faried about Howard too.

Today's big news via Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo Sports:

The Brooklyn Nets have fired coach Avery Johnson, league source tells Yahoo! Sports.

Not surprising at all considering the total collapse of the Brooklyn Nets this last month, and the well known impatience of the team competing with the Knicks for the limelight in New York. P.J. Carlesimo will replace Johnson on an interim basis. Who will be the next coach though? Phil Jackson?
