As Rick Pitino sits down to break BacalaÃto with JJ Barea and Carlos Arroyo en route to a Puerto Rican press conference to announce him as the team’s national coach, another little rumor has surfaced.

The blog said that sources say they reached out to Calipari over a month ago through a third party and Cal expressed interest. So, there you go.
