CBKB: Krzyzewski: Still not interested in leaving Duke

AP Sports Writer

DURHAM, N.C. While Mike Krzyzewski is flattered by all the reports linking him to the NBA, he insists he's not leaving Duke.

Krzyzewski admitted Wednesday that "it's more of a compliment it's not an insult" to hear his name mentioned for several NBA coaching vacancies. But he also reaffirmed what he's been saying for years, every time those rumors pop up: He isn't going anywhere.

He joked that "my position hasn't changed. I hope Duke's position hasn't changed."

Recent reports have mentioned the New Jersey Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers as possibly being interested in luring the 63-year-old Hall of Famer away from Duke. Krzyzewski has 11 Final Fours and four national titles in three decades at Duke.

He spoke between drills at the "K Academy," his annual fantasy camp.
