Rumor Mill


It has been rumored that the Jazz brass have traveled to CT to meet with UConn Head Coach Kevin Ollie.

NBA player Kevin Durant in an interview with Grantland said that Kevin Ollie (who played for Oklahoma City Thunder in 2009-2010) "taught him the ropes", and "changed the culture of Oklahoma City". He also said, "Kevin Ollie, he was a game changer for us. I think he changed the whole culture in Oklahoma City. Just his mind set, professionalism, every single day. And we all watched that, and we all wanted to be like that. It rubbed off on Russell Westbrook, myself, Jeff Green, James Harden. And then everybody who comes through now, it’s the standard that you’ve got to live up to as a Thunder player. And it all started with Kevin Ollie."

LeBron also gave Coach Ollie some serious props earlier today http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaab/2014/04/08/lebron-says-hes-thrilled-for-uconns-kevin-ollie/7484821/

Both Keivin Ollie and Billy Donovan have signed multi year contract at UConn and Florida. Let's see if Utah can buy them out and bring one of them in.
