Pitino denies interest in Nets job

Former Celtics coach and current University of Louisville mentor Rick Pitino told ESPN.com that a report in the New York Daily News suggesting he had reached out to the management of the New Jersey Nets, having intermediaries contact Nets president Rod Thorn regarding the teams head coaching position, are false. "There's not an ounce of truth to it," Pitino told ESPN.com's Pat Forde. Pitino went on to say, "I have no interest, period. I'm done with coaching professional basketball. I've put the professional ranks behind me." According to the ESPN report, sources within the Nets organization told the ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard that Pinto may have used third-party contacts to get word to the Nets' incoming owner, Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, of the coach's potential interest.

Red Sox out of hunt for Takahashi

According to a source familiar with the negotiations, the Red Sox are no longer in the mix for the services of pitcher Hisanori Takahashi, who the New York Times is reporting is on the verge of an agreement with the New York Mets. The Sox had offered the Japanese lefty a minor league deal, with the opportunity to compete for a spot in the team's bullpen.

Rondo not 'responsive' to Team USA

According to Jerry Colangelo, who was, along with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, charged with forming the 27-person pool of players to potentially play for Team USA, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo showed no interest in being added to the list of players under consideration for the squad. "Rondo was not responsive to the inquiries regarding his interest," said Colangelo, who said along with Andrew Bynum, three or four unnamed players declined the invite. “So we just assumed that was the case.” The U.S. team is loaded at the point guard position, with Chris Paul, Deron Williams and Chauncey Billups all being selected to the pool. Jason Kidd declined the invite, as he retired from international competition after the 2008 Beijing Games with a gold medal. The only Celtics player to be selected for consideration was center Kendrick Perkins....

Schefter on D&C: Pats will pursue WR

Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the Super Bowl and the Patriots' offseason plans. Asked about the Patriots' decision not to name coordinators, Schefter said: "I think Bill Belichick is smart enough to know what he can and can't handle."

 

Regarding the Patriots' immediate plans, "They've got some real needs," Schefter said. "They need to re-tool." Asked about the wide receiver situation, Schefter said: "I expect that the Patriots are going to make some type of move for a receiver this offseason," although he said he doubted it would be either Denver's Brandon Marshall or Arizona's Anquan Boldin, two veteran wide receivers who Schefter said will be traded. Added Schefter: "Last year [the Patriots] had an interest in drafting a wide receiver in the first round. They explored the idea of going after Percy Harvin. They knew that...
