ESPN analyst P.J. Carlesimo, coveted by the Philadelphia 76ers to succeed Mike D’Antoni as associate head coach, has elected to stay in broadcasting for family reasons, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN.com that Carlesimo had strong interest in the Philadelphia post and in reuniting with his former colleague in San Antonio, Sixers head coach Brett Brown, and new Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo, with whom Carlesimo worked in Toronto. But Carlesimo, sources say, ultimately decided to continue in his dual TV and radio broadcasting roles, which allow him to spend more time with his family.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
