sorry, but if this is truly a done deal, then there would be no reason for denials, etc. It would be in everyone's best interest to move forward with the pieces they have. For the Celtics, they would want an interim that can begin to 'prove himself'. For IU, they would want to get started with new coach - putting staff together, recruits, etc. For Brad, he would want to mentally begin his new gig and begin on IU business. I believe the insiders, but the whole idea that this is 'done', but eveyrone is going to pretend it isn't for a while makes zero sense.
