For Kiki Vandeweghe, the chance to play for the New York Knicks, after spending his first nine pro basketball seasons in Denver and Portland, was an opportunity to carry on a rich family tradition. His father, Dr. Ernie Vandeweghe, was a popular guard for the Knicks in the early '50s, known for his relentless hustle and unselfish play.

LAS VEGAS - He won't roll his eyes. He won't shake his head. He won't sigh. If this is what it takes for Chris Douglas-Roberts to get back into the NBA, well, bring on as many seemingly meaningless games as it takes. The onetime college star whose professional career once held significant promise now finds himself among hundreds of fringe hopefuls trying to impress in the Las Vegas Summer League. It's an odd spot for a player who once averaged 17.3 points a game for a month with the New Jersey Nets.

New Jersey Nets General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe is set to become the team's coach for the rest of the season. He doesn't have to worry about being on the bench for a potential record-setting loss, though. Vandeweghe won't coach his first game with the team until Friday, a person with knowledge of the team's plans told the Associated Press on Monday. The person requested anonymity because the Nets don't plan to announce their plans until this morning. Tom Barrise , who led the team Sunday night after Lawrence Frank was fired, will coach again Wednesday against Dallas, when the Nets can set an NBA record with an 18th straight loss to begin a season.

After scoring 32 points, including 11 to pull the Portland Trail Blazers ahead in the fourth quarter, Kiki Vandeweghe preferred to talk about his team's defense rather than his performance.
