Coach Rick Carlisle was named Western Conference coach of the month after guiding the Mavericks to an NBA-best 11-1 record during February. Of those 12 games, the Mavs were on the road for nine of them, with the lone loss coming in a 121-120 loss to Denver.

It was the second time that Carlisle has been honored while with the Mavericks -- he also won in April 2010. It is the fourth time he's won overall.

It looks like Avery Johnson's next job won't be as coach of the Philadelphia 76ers.

A source told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that the 76ers are negotiating a contract with TNT analyst Doug Collins, who has had three previous NBA coaching jobs.

That doesn't mean Johnson, who was fired by the Mavericks after the 2007-08 season, will remain an ESPN analyst. He is still a candidate for openings with the Atlanta Hawks and New Orleans Hornets.
