UConn's woman's coach Geno Auriemma is plugging for lower baskets for the women's game. I'm not sure that is a good idea, given that girls often cut their teeth playing against guys and are used to the standard 10-foot rim height. Some backboard sets can be changed in height by winching things down a tad and pulling the standard back to compensate, but most playground and many gym sets are fixed; it would be awkward to refit gyms with a mens set and a women's set, and singular courts would be lawsuit-bait.
Brooklyn is on Long Island, isn't it? The Islanders are moving to the Nets' new stadium rather than try and get a new facility built; the current Nassau digs are 41 years old and need an upgrade, assuming the NHL gets back playing someday. They have a lease for their current digs through 2015.
Ozzie Guilien is available if you have a baseball team that needs a manager; Miami ate three years of his deal in order to fire him. It seemed to be a good fit, bringing in a Hispanic manager to run the club as it moved to a Little Havana stadium, but saying something nice about the boss in Big Havana isn't the way to make friends in Miami.
He might be a better fit in the broadcast booth; I could see ESPN or the MLB Network snag him as baseball's version of Charles Barkley, sometimes wrong but never in doubt. He could do well talking smack for a living rather than doing that as part of running a ball-club.
