Reports that Miami Heat president Pat Riley is contemplating a return to coaching continued, nearly a month after he announced plans to "take a little bit more of an active participation" during the coming season. Team officials declined to comment yesterday on the reports, and coach Stan Van Gundy - Riley's longtime top assistant who was promoted before the start of the 2003-04 season - told the Miami Herald he has not "heard anything. " Riley was unavailable for comment and attempts by the Associated Press to reach Van Gundy were not immediately successful.

STAN VAN GUNDY knows 76ers guard Jason Richardson pretty well after coaching him for two seasons with the Orlando Magic. He got an appreciation for Richardson then and it has only grown over the years. Like many, Van Gundy is amazed the 34 year-old Richardson has bounced back after missing 2 years due to injury and surgeries to his knee. "I called him from time to time over the last couple of years just to see what he was doing," said Van Gundy. "He's one of my favorites. He's a great, great pro, a great worker, a great person and a tremendous guy to coach.

The Orlando Magic needed less than 48 hours to go from a terrible third quarter to a terrific one. Vince Carter and Dwight Howard each scored nine points in that period to erase an 11-point halftime deficit, and the visiting Magic beat the Boston Celtics 96-89 yesterday. "In a matter of 3 days, I've seen the worst quarter we've had since I've been here in 3 years and the best now in 3 years," Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy said. On Friday night, the Magic blew a 21-point lead and lost to the Washington Wizards 92-91 after being outscored 39-17 in the third quarter.

The Orlando Magic and Billy Donovan are, according to sources, close to terminating the contract they agreed to on Friday. Donovan, who signed a 5-year, $27.5 million deal to coach the Magic, changed his mind the next day and now wants to return as head coach at the University of Florida. According to an ESPN.com report, the two sides met yesterday to work out various details. Among them, according to numerous sources, is a non-compete clause that would keep Donovan from coaching in the NBA for 5 years.

Penn guard Ibby Jaaber, who last season was named Ivy League player of the year for the second consecutive season, will play with the Detroit Pistons' summer-league team later this month. A free agent, the 6-foot-2 Jaaber was not selected in the June NBA draft. "I wasn't expecting to get drafted, so the best I could have hoped for was a summer-league team," Jaaber said. Jaaber was not the only undrafted former Philadelphia college player to land such a spot. Temple guard Dustin Salisbery (76ers)

Orlando Magic players say Jameer Nelson will play in the NBA Finals, even though the All-Star point guard and his coach remain publicly pessimistic. Nelson participated in a full team practice yesterday for the first time since tearing the labrum in his right shoulder Feb. 2. While Nelson and coach Stan Van Gundy still said the point guard's status won't be determined until game day, players said Nelson looked "terrific" and expect him to be on the court against the Los Angeles Lakers tomorrow night for Game 1. "I expect to see him out there at some point in the series," backup point guard Anthony Johnson said.

Shaquille O'Neal returned to the Miami Heat lineup last night after missing three games because of a stomach virus. Heat coach Stan Van Gundy talked about playing O'Neal in shorter spurts against the 76ers because of possible fatigue. Upon hearing that, Sixers coach Jim O'Brien quipped: "How short are the spurts?" "He's such a dominating presence," O'Brien said before the game at the Wachovia Center. "Your whole game plan, offensively and defensively, revolves around trying to limit his deep touches.

His hair is still slicked-back, although now tinged with gray. The "Showtime" style he used to win four championships in the 1980s is a fading memory. His intensity on the sideline just wasn't the same. Pat Riley resigned as coach of the Miami Heat yesterday, 4 days before the team he reloaded with young but largely unproven talent opens its season against the 76ers on Tuesday in Philadelphia. Riley will remain as team president, but turned over the coaching responsibilities to Stan Van Gundy, his top assistant over the past 8 years with the Heat.

Dallas Mavericks coach Dick Motta is upset with No. 1 draft choice Jason Kidd for failing to attend this week's minicamp. "Jason looked me in the eye after the draft and said, 'If I have to crawl on my belly for free to get there, I'll be there,' " Motta said. "I took it as a point guard's word. I don't want this to affect our relationship, but I'm very upset. " Kidd, the former California star selected second overall in the NBA draft, is unsigned, but the Mavericks offered him a $36 million insurance policy to attend the four-day camp.

On the night of the NBA draft, Darrun Hilliard tried to find ways to distract himself as he waited for a call from an NBA team while spending time with his family in Bethlehem, Pa. When the board game Trouble and the card game Uno didn't work, he went on a 4-mile run. "It's crazy that I was still working, even on draft day," the former Villanova star said. "I was just trying to keep my nerves down and my anxiety down. " Finally the call came about 11:30 p.m. The Detroit Pistons were on the line, and with the 38th overall choice and eighth in the second round, they wanted the 6-foot-6 Hilliard, who averaged a team-high 14.3 points and was named first-team all-Big East and Big Five Player of the Year last season.

The question went from "What if the 76ers beat the Detroit Pistons?" to "What if the Sixers beat the Pistons by 20?" That possibility turned into a reality. Name a Sixer and there's a pretty good chance that he gave the Pistons fits Wednesday night. They dominated the visiting team and achieved that 20-point cushion on Michael Carter-Williams' pair of foul shots with 38.6 seconds left. After regaining possession following a Pistons turnover, the Sixers ran time off the clock en route to an 89-69 victory at the Wells Fargo Center.

Brett Brown comes across as delusional. The 76ers coach is not. He just appears that way when it comes to the coming season. "We are always going to find a way to try to win a game. End of story," Brown said. "The film will reflect that. Our conditioning will reflect that. Our practices will reflect that. " But there's one major problem: The Sixers are not built to win games. In fact, this season's roster was partly assembled to ensure the exact opposite. The franchise will start the second season of tanking Wednesday night in the season opener against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

WHEN MALIK ALLEN played under Stan Van Gundy in the early 2000s as a fresh-faced forward out of Villanova, their respect level began to grow from coach-to-player to man-to-man. Van Gundy always had been there through Allen's career, whether it was as an assistant, then head coach, from 2001-05 for the Miami Heat, or as a friend to the big man throughout his 10-year NBA playing career. So when Van Gundy was being considered by the Detroit Pistons as their new head coach and director of basketball operations, Allen happened to be on the phone with his old friend, weighing some options.

Third in a series   BOSTON - At the self-proclaimed Super Bowl of sports analytics, Sam Hinkie had to be squirming in his chair. With Hinkie among the crowd at last Friday's MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, along with three members of the Sixers' front office, former NBA coach Stan Van Gundy ripped his team. Regardless of his position in the standings, Van Gundy said, he at least wanted to field the best team possible to try to win. "Not what Philadelphia is doing right now, which is embarrassing," Van Gundy said.

When the Cleveland Cavaliers swiftly snatched former coach Mike Brown off the coaching carousel and rehired the guy they fired just one year after he was voted coach of the year in a hopeless attempt to keep LeBron James from leaving for Miami, Josh Harris didn't flinch. Less than 48 hours after it was reported that Brown and Brian Shaw sat atop the 76ers' wish list to replace Doug Collins, Brown, whom the Los Angeles Lakers made the scapegoat for their poor play and fired just five games into this season (looks like that was a mistake, too)

It is telling when Stan Van Gundy, a man who wants back into the NBA, lumps the 76ers into that clump of teams (Cleveland and Detroit are the others) where the situation is so rancid that a respected ex-coach wants nothing to do with them. And it is even more telling when those gigs are, at the moment, the only openings in the league. Heading into the offseason following a disastrous season on all fronts, this is how the Sixers are viewed from the outside looking in. A season removed from coming within one game of reaching the Eastern Conference finals, the Sixers are at a crossroads and find themselves among the NBA's armpit organizations.

The Orlando Magic fired head coach Stan Van Gundy and split with general manager Otis Smith on Monday, the culmination of a season in which Orlando was ensnared in a long-running soap opera with Dwight Howard and made another first-round playoff exit. "It's time for new leadership and new voices," Magic CEO Alex Martins said in a statement. Smith and Van Gundy's problematic relationship with Howard weighed down the team all season after the all-star center requested a trade.
