TULSA-HAITH

Source: Haith front-runner for Tulsa job

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Missouri coach Frank Haith is in position to replace Danny Manning at Tulsa.

A person with knowledge of the situation at Tulsa says Haith is the front-runner for the job, and he was traveling to the school on Thursday afternoon. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing had been finalized.

Haith coached at Miami before taking over at Missouri. He led Missouri to a 30-5 record in 2011-12 and was The Associated Press Coach of the Year. The Tigers went 23-12 this season.

Manning left Tulsa after two seasons to take over at Wake Forest. He coached the Golden Hurricane to the NCAA tournament this season.

NBA JERSEYS

LeBron still No. 1 with NBA's most-popular jersey

MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James still has the NBA's best-selling jersey.

The Miami Heat star topped the list of most popular jerseys this season, and it's the sixth time he's had that distinction. With James at No. 1 and teammate Dwyane Wade at No. 7, the Heat also had the top spot on the team-merchandise list.

Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City is No. 2 on the league list, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant, Chicago's Derrick Rose, Golden State's Stephen Curry and New York's Carmelo Anthony.

On the team-sales list, following the Heat were the Lakers, Bulls, Thunder and Knicks.

The NBA announced the rankings Thursday, based on overall retail sales on NBAStore.com since the start of the season.
