Yahoo Sports: Cleveland Cavaliers offered John Calipari $60 million to be president, coach
Author: Mary Schmitt Boyer
Publication: Plain Dealer

"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Even after telling The Plain Dealer -- and anyone else who would listen -- that he was committed to returning to the University of Kentucky, coach John Calipari apparently continued to be involved in talks with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert that would have made him president and coach of the Cavs and paid him more than $60 million for seven years, according to a Yahoo Sports report. ESPN put the numbers at $80 million for 10 years.

Yahoo also reported that Alvin Gentry and Tyronn Lue will have second interviews with the Cavs, including meetings with Gilbert. An NBA source said no second interviews have been scheduled.

In addition, Yahoo reported the Cavs continue to be interested in Florida coach Billy Donovan, but Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said again on Monday that the Cavs have not asked for permission to speak to Donovan." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- I don't know exactly how much money the Cavaliers offered John Calipari.

Nor do I know when the offer was made to the Kentucky basketball coach.

But I am relieved that Calipari decided to stay at Kentucky, rather than take over as coach and president of the Cavaliers." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Beloved former Cavaliers star Mark Price, now an assistant with the Charlotte Hornets, will interview for the Cavs head coaching position on Tuesday, three NBA sources told The Plain Dealer.

With the team's coaching search entering its fourth week since Mike Brown was fired on May 12, Price is believed to be the sixth candidate to formally interview with Cavs general manager David Griffin, joining Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin, Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue and former NBA head coaches Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins and Vinny Del Negro.

None of the candidates has met with owner Dan Gilbert, and none has a second interview scheduled as of Monday evening, a source said, though Yahoo reported that Gentry and Lue would be interviewed again. The Associated Press also reported Gentry would have a second interview." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
