Dinosaurs could go extinct -- again. Toronto Raptors new CEO Tim Leiweke recently suggested that the organization may consider changing its name.  “We're definitely going to take a look at it," Leiweke told the National Post. "It doesn't mean we're committed to it. It means it's a good conversation. I saw those generic uniforms today in the paper. … That won't be the uniform, by the way. I can assure you of that.

The Clippers have begun their search for a new coach to replace Vinny Del Negro, with the hope that they can find someone who is capable of molding the team into a championship contender. But it will not be an easy task to find someone of that stature. Currently, there are only four active NBA coaches who have won an NBA championship - San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, Boston's Doc Rivers, Dallas' Rick Carlisle and Miami's Eric Spoelstra.

As the Clippers ponder whether to hire Byron Scott to replace Vinny Del Negro as the team's coach, L.A. will have plenty of information to help with the decision. Scott has coached for 13 years in the NBA, and he has been fired three times, the most recent by the Cleveland Cavaliers after going 24-58 during the 2012-13 season. He has a 44.4% (416-521) winning percentage. Still, there are pros and cons to hiring Scott -- just like there is with any coach. The pros: He led the New Jersey Nets to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances, losing to the Lakers in 2002 and to San Antonio in 2003.

The name change must be approved by the NBA Board of Governors, which will meet in July, but Jordan was optimistic about its approval, the Associated Press reported.
