Well, guys, it turns out Rick Pinto may not be coming to the NBA after all.
Despite last night’s rumors, this morning Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com claimed that the rumors Dan Gilbert was talking with Pitino were false.
According to Fedor, a source of the Cleveland Cavilers said there was ‘zero truth’ that Cavs owner, Dan Gilbert, had been in contact with Rick Pitino about the coaching vacancy in Cleveland.
“We are, respectfully, not interested in him at all. No conversations with him by Dan (Gilbert) or anyone else,” the source said.
Last night Hall of Fame journalist Peter Vecsey, said that Rick Pitino had been speaking with Dan Gilbert about the Cleveland Cavilers’ coaching vacancy.

Rick Pitino will surely coach in America again. We may just have to wait a little longer.
Go Cats. @BrentW_KSR
