Bernie Bickerstaff, the first-year coach of the Seattle SuperSonics, was discussing the merits of rookie forward Xavier McDaniel recently with Dallas Coach Dick Motta, who was Bickerstaff's boss in Washington. "Bernie loves the guy," Motta said. "When he gets through talking he tells me, 'You'd love to coach this one.' From what I've seen and heard, I like McDaniel a lot."
