Izzo looking for LeBron

By Jason Lloyd Published: June 14, 2010

Tom Izzo has yet to reach LeBron James, which is why he has yet to make a decision on his coaching future, according to a source close to the Michigan State coach.
Izzo has tried reaching out to James and would like to hear from the Cavs' superstar before he decides whether or not to become the next coach of the franchise.
"LeBron has to give some indication to Tom that he really likes the Cavs," the source said. "He doesn't expect LeBron to say, 'I'm coming back' but LeBron has to give some indication that the Cavs will win all ties or that he doesn't have any idea what he's going to do. But he needs to hear something."
Izzo started a basketball camp today that runs through Thursday. He is more active at his camps than most coaches at his level, which means a decision may not come until the end of the week.
"He's got 500 kids who paid a lot of money to sit there and get instruction from him," the source said. "I don't see Tom walking out on them in the middle of the week."
