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.

With the Cavaliers’ franchise-record-tying 13-game winning streak ending with a 106-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, the biggest disappointment in Cleveland’s postgame locker room stemmed from news that weather issues would delay the team flight home, not the defeat.

If anything, the loss provided Cleveland a chance to reflect on the team it has become in the last 3 ½ weeks, going from a 5-7 record to holding the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
