Former Indiana Basketball Star Joining Mike Woodson’s Staff

  Former Indiana Basketball Star Joining Mike Woodson’s Staff Mike Woodson wasn’t the hot name in coaching like Porter Moser or Chris Beard. But he’s giving Indiana fans a lot to look forward to with the staff he’s assembling. And his latest hire can only improve that perception. According to JoJo Gentry of CBS 4 Indy, Indiana are hiring former Hoosiers star Dane Fife […] The post Former Indiana Basketball Star Joining Mike Woodson’s Staff appeared first on The Spun.

Brad Stevens had to set the record straight on Monday after some in the media twisted a reporter’s words.

Speaking on ABC Saturday ahead of the network’s telecast for the Boston Celtics-Golden State Warriors game, Adrian Wojnarowski shared some news on Stevens. Woj said that Indiana was prepared to offer Stevens a 10-year, $70 million contract. He never said that Stevens actually was offered such a contract, just that the Hoosiers were supposedly prepared to offer it.

Still, that didn’t stop many second-class media aggregators from twisting Woj’s report around. Several outlets said that Stevens turned down $70 million from Indiana, even though that’s not what Woj said.

  Brad Paisley Details the 'Crazy' Surgery He Performed on His Son Jasper’s Fish: 'He Made it!' Brad Paisley gave his 11-year-old son Jasper's pufferfish a tooth trim after the country star noticed that the pet had lost a lot of weight Puffers' teeth can sometimes grow so long they can't eat, and this one was in dire need of a tooth trim. "Brad was looking up YouTube videos to find out what to do," says wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley, 49.  After Internet consultation, Paisley added drops of clove oil to a bucket of water ("to put the fish to sleep," Kimberly explains) and went to work with a set of clippers. "I've never seen him nervous before, but his hand was shaking," the actress recalls.

Stevens was asked on Monday about the report and said he was never offered anything by Indiana.

Woj never said Stevens was offered the deal, just that Indiana was prepared to make the offer.

What’s the main takeaway? It’s that Stevens had no interest in Indiana. He had so little interest that it sounds as if IU didn’t even get to tell him what it would have offered.

Why would a guy who’s in his eighth year with the Celtics, and who has signed two contract extensions with Boston, want to leave for college? He wouldn’t, and Stevens made that clear.

  GM Ken Holland on Oilers' trade strategy: I won't deal a 'first for a rental' Holland isn’t willing to move a first-round draft pick for a player on an expiring contract. That would include Hall, who signed a one-year $8M deal with the Sabres in a unique offseason. According to previous reports, Buffalo GM Kevyn Adams has been looking for a first in any discussions on the enigmatic winger, but that is certainly not guaranteed at this point.The New Jersey Devils did recently secure a first-round pick in trade, but that was for both Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac. They had to retain salary on both players as well, making them cost a combined $5.
