Tom Izzo was supposed to announce his decision on whether or not he would be accepting the head coaching position for the Cleveland Cavilers on Saturday but delayed his announcement until today.
Whether or not Izzo has reach his decision remains unknown, but according to ESPN.com high level sources say LeBron James is onboard for the Izzo hiring.
While LeBron endorses Izzo, he will not guarantee his return to Cleveland on the hiring alone. Izzo has allegedly reached out to LeBron James.
This morning, Izzo spoke to a youth basketball camp held at MSU but did not offer any insight on his decision.
LBJ sat down with Larry King to discuss his highly coveted free agency. Right now, it is like a game of “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego” as to where LeBron will end up next season, but LBJ says despite all the rumors Cleveland still has the edge.
In an exclusive interview with Larry King Live, King asked LeBron if Cleveland had the edge, LeBron said: “Absolutely, because you know, this city, these fans, I mean, have given me a lot in these seven years. And you know, for me it’s comfortable. So I’ve got a lot of memories here. And so it does have an edge.”
Unfortunately, an NBA Championship in Cleveland is not one of James’ memories. The NBA free agency opens July 1, but in the meantime, watch the Larry King interview in its entirety this Friday at 9 on CNN.
