(Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE/Getty Images) It's right in the heat of Summer here (pardon that hideous pun) and I felt too hot and bothered to go out and do anything on this Saturday night so I decided to stay home and watch a movie. But I was feeling in a Nets kind of mood. A nostalgic one at that. So, I decided to watch Once Brothers. I cried the first time I saw it and I just cried again. I couldn't help it.

Sources: Hornets hiring Williams

According to Adrian W of Yahoo, Monty Williams and the Hornets "have agreed to the framework of a three-year contract... a source briefed on the talks told Yahoo! Sports". Adrian says that "Hornets GM Jeff Bower abandoned his courtship of Thibodeau, a Boston Celtics assistant, on Friday afternoon, and entered into discussions with Williams to take the job. The source says the team will hold an option for the third season of the deal."
