Hey, you know what we don’t need? Another John Calipari to the NBA rumor! Unfortunately, we just got one from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who cites league sources that say the Sacramento Kings are “probing” John Calipari to gauge his interest in taking over the franchise’s front office and coaching jobs:
Calipari has been communicating with owner Vivek Ranadive and other members of the Kings ownership group in recent weeks, league sources said. Calipari has listened to scenarios with which the Kings could offer him complete control of the franchise’s fledgling basketball operations to go along with coaching, league sources said.
Woj says no formal offer has been made, but the Kings are well aware it may take $10 million+/year to get Calipari to consider leaving Kentucky.
Usually I dismiss these rumors, but when it comes from Woj…Boogie, Willie, and possibly Bledsoe? Uggggh.
