I never entertained the thought that Izzo would go to the Cavs. It never made any logical sense and it was destined to fail even if he did accept the offer.
His heart was never into the move.
I think he just liked being courted, and once he realized it was a 50/50 shot LeBron was not coming back, he knew it just wasn’t the right move.
Maybe in the future a more stable opportunity will come around, but for now it appears he is staying at Michigan State.
Izzo has a press conference scheduled for this evening.
