LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -Louisville coach Rick Pitino says there is ``absolutely no truth'' to the rumors that he is returning to the NBA.
Pitino released a statement Saturday saying neither he nor anyone representing him has contacted the Sacramento Kings' about their vacant coaching job.
He says the rumors are hurting the Kings and misleading players he is attempting to recruit to Louisville.
Pitino just finished his eighth season with the Cardinals, going 31-6 and winning the Big East regular-season and tournament titles. The Cardinals lost to Michigan State in the regional finals of the NCAA tournament.
Pitino has coached two NBA teams. He went 90-74 with the New York Knicks from 1987 to 1989 and 102-146 with the Boston Celtics from 1997 to 2001.
