More John Calipari to the NBA Rumors

The John Calipari to the NBA rumors won’t stop. This year is no exception.

With the opening of the New Orleans Pelicans job, John Reid of NOLA.com reported that Calipari has expressed interest in the position. Connecting Calipari to the Pelicans doesn’t seem far-fetched because it’s the NBA, and he’d have the chance to be reunited with former players Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans.

Still, the dots don’t connect beyond that.

For one, Calipari will make $8 million next season at Kentucky. According to Reid, the Pelicans are looking to spend between $4-$5 million for their next head coach. That’s a big gap.

But it’s an NBA job, so of course Calipari’s name has to be brought up. It’s hard seeing Calipari leave for a market like New Orleans, especially with potential openings in Los Angeles and New York looming once (if?) the teams become competitive.

One person who really doesn’t think this will happen is Calipari, who took to Twitter to calm Big Blue Nation.

So maybe that’s that? Until next time, John Calipari to the NBA rumors.
