I think he's on ESPN as an NBA analyst.
Flip knows his way around Minneapolis and would be a good host for Tom during the stop over?
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
Saunders lives there. He has a son who was (last I knew) approaching college-age and looking to play basketball somewhere close to home. I think he and Izzo got to know each other during Saunders' time with the Pistons, and got to be buddies. I think he does some unofficial scout work for Izzo at the games he gets to in Minnesota.
Thank you, Denicos.
"He talks about three times each week with Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, who became his friend while Saunders was coaching the Pistons."
Would think that Jones would like the playing situation at MSU in 2014.
Tom must have a twin bro no one knows about or sleeps standing up. He and the fam were at 10AM Mass this morning in East Lansing. Man earns his paycheck...
He could have slept in until noon and he would still earn his paycheck.
I think he just trained himself to watch and subconsciously break down film while sleeping. He's presently sleeping and working at the same time.

Izzo has a dedication to excellence that most of us (probably all of us on this post board) can't fathom. He puts in the time and effort the same way a Warren Buffet or a Martin Scorsese or Michael Phelps works in their respective professions. Izzo does that for basketball coaching. I have made peace with the fact that I am not built that way, but I am so incredibly glad that Michigan State has a guy who is.
Flip may be doing some recruiting of Tyus for his possible new job at Minnesota. Tubby may be "retiring" after today.

Flip and Izzo are good friends. Flip is on a radio show every Friday and several times he has told stories about helping scout teams with Izzo.
I would be very surprised if Flip takes that job, he is leading a group to buy the T-Wolves, doubt he has time to do both.
And he had company.
• As the top high school junior basketball recruit in the country, Apple Valley’s Tyus Jones is being recruited like I have never seen any other player in the state. Last week, Mike Krzyzewski, the great Duke coach, spent time watching Jones practice and visited with him. Tuesday, a day after losing an NIT game to Robert Morris, Kentucky coach John Calipari flew in to watch Jones play. And Saturday, hours after Michigan State beat Memphis in the NCAA tournament, Tom Izzo was at Target Center watching both Jones and Travis win state titles. … Apple Valley center Brock Bertram is a freshman who turned 15 during the season and is already being scouted by many major basketball programs.
