Brad Stevens Committed To Celtics Amid Speculation Of Interest From Indiana University

Dec 22, 2014 1:33 AM

Brad Stevens made it clear that he is committed to his job as the head coach of the Boston Celtics, even as fans of the Indiana University Hoosiers speculate about Stevens returning home.

"I’ve committed to being here," Stevens said. "I’ve already left a situation once and that was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to choose to do. This is something that as long as they want me to be here, this is what I want to be doing and I’m going to give it everything I’ve got. I know it’s all specific to the rumor mills and the discussion of one spot. I think they’ve got a good coach who’s done a helluva job. He doesn’t deserve that speculation.

"I’m the head coach of the Boston Celtics. This is the job. This is where I am. This is what I want to do really well and I’m committed to being as good as I can every single day for the Celtics."

Stevens is in his second season as the Celtics' coach and has gained respect in the league.

Said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: "He was a hell of a coach before he got here and he’ll be an even better coach as time goes on. He’s a special guy, that’s why Danny Ainge went and got him."

"I think Brad Stevens is an awesome coach," Kevin Love said. "They’re going to be able to figure it out as they accumulate more talent and like I said, I’m a big fan of Brad Stevens."

Devin Davis In Serious Condition After Being Hit By Car Driven By Hoosier Teammate

Nov 1, 2014 2:25 PM

Indiana sophomore Devin Davis was injured after being struck by a vehicle driven by freshman teammate Emmitt Holt just moments after exiting the vehicle.

Davis was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and is currently in serious condition. Hospital spokeswoman Amanda Roach said the hospital had no information on Davis.

"I've been with him all night," Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a text to ESPN.com. "Big 48 hours coming."

Holt was cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.02. Holt registered a 0.025, according to the school. Someone is considered to be over the limit in Indiana if they have a BAC of at least .08 percent. If they are younger than 21 years old -- as was the case with Holt -- the limit is only .02 percent.

Holt was driving away "when, for unknown reasons, Mr. Davis came into the roadway and struck the side of the vehicle near the front passenger windshield," according to the police.

Police found Davis unconscious with a head injury on the street that's just off the IU campus. Holt's Jeep Liberty had damage to its passenger side, front fender and windshield, Canada said.

Noah Vonleh Leaning Toward Declaring For NBA Draft

Mar 15, 2014 9:38 PM

Noah Vonleh is strongly leaning toward declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft, according to sources.

Vonleh is expected to be selected somewhere between the No. 7 and No. 12 pick by front office executives.

Vonleh's inner circle has been engaged in dialogue with a few prominent NBA agents, especially across the past several weeks of the season, sources told Yahoo Sports. 

Vonleh sat out two late regular season games with inflammation in his left foot, which team executives and agents believe was due to concern for his draft status.

Vonleh won't turn 19 until late August and many executives have concerns about his eventual position in the NBA.

"He'll spend a lot of time in the D-League next year," one NBA general manager told Yahoo Sports. "He's nowhere near ready to play, but there's no doubt he's got great potential, along with very good character."

Some Scouts Beginning To Prefer Vonleh Over Randle At PF

Jan 24, 2014 12:47 PM

Julius Randle entered the season as a candidate to go first overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, but he has seemingly dropped as scouts have taken a closer look.

Some scouts are beginning to prefer Noah Vonleh of Indiana as a better power forward prospect than Randle.

Vonleh doesn't have the same type of "star" potential, but he is bigger and longer than Randle. Vonleh also has a higher rebounding rate on the defensive glass.
