Heat To Reassign Ron Rothstein, Bob McAdoo

The Miami Heat have reassigned longtime assistant coaches Ron Rothstein and Bob McAdoo.

Rothstein and McAdoo will no longer play significant roles on Erik Spoelstra's staff and could leave the bench altogether.

It is immediately unclear what role Rothstein and McAdoo will have in the organization, but both are expected to continue to have jobs with the Heat, league sources said.

David Fizdale has become the top assistant in recent seasons, while Juwan Howard will be promoted from his role in player development.

Emeka Okafor has received interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat among roughly half of the NBA's teams, according to sources.

Shawn Marion Agrees To Sign With Cavs

Shawn Marion has committed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Marion also received interest from the Los Angeles Clippers, Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat.

The Cavaliers could only offer Marion a veteran's minimum deal, but the chance to play alongside LeBron James and compete for a title clinched his decision.

Marion met with Larry Bird earlier this week and could offer more money, but the Pacers would only spend as much on him using their Paul George injury exception as would be allowed while staying under the tax.
