Agreed. Two more books to look for are:

Obsession:Timberwolves Stalk the NBA Bill Musselman's Relentless Quest to Beat the Best (Bill Heller) While it spends too much time repeating itself, there are a couple of chapters concerning his time coaching in the CBA.

and just for fun:

The Cockroach Basketball League (Charley Rosen) A novel, but I read it after the Levine book.
