James Never Said He Wants Or Needs Calipari To Be His Coach.

ESPN’s Andy Katz with some additional information on Coach Calipari |

According to multiple sources, James has never said he wants or needs Calipari to be his coach. There has been no contact from any NBA team toward Calipari, who coached the New Jersey Nets for two seasons in the late 1990s.

According to sources, Calipari would need to be offered between $5 million and $8 million annually and have some sort of player personnel control, to re-enter the NBA.

Calipari has said in the past that it took him 20 years to reach a mainstream program like Kentucky’s. He fell short in trying to get the Wildcats to the Final Four, and as he stated, his work is unfinished.

Does it bother you that Andy Katz is reporting how much pay ($5 to $8 million) it would take and what control (player personnel control) Calipari would have to be given to enter the NBA again? Does that mean this discussion has already occurred? How else does a “source” know ths?

Just my mind asking curious questions…
