DOOLING NOT INTERESTED IN FISHER'S ROLE: Celtics G and NBPA Exec Committee VP Keyon Dooling said that he has "no interest" in succeeding Thunder G Derek Fisher as NBPA President. He added that the union "would have to seek a veteran leader to stabilize the organization, foster a better relationship with [NBPA Exec Dir Billy] Hunter, and erase the perception that Hunter is bleeding the organization."
