MSU or Cavs? Izzo to say soon

Tom Izzo is trying to take his time as he weighs the pros and cons of leaving to coach the Cavaliers or staying at Michigan State.

He indicated on Sunday that he's still undecided.

"Still gathering," Izzo wrote in a text message to the Associated Press.

The Cavaliers have been wooing Izzo for at least a week to coach their team — and perhaps LeBron James, who can become a free agent.

Izzo, who spent several hours in Cleveland with team officials last week, has said the situation wouldn't go on forever.

The Cavaliers are not commenting on their coaching search but are expected to intensify talks with Byron Scott if Izzo declines their offer.

•The Hawks officially named Larry Drew, 52, as their coach. It's the first head coaching job for Drew, who was fired coach Mike Woodson's top assistant. After the Hawks formally introduce Drew, who played point guard in the NBA for 10 seasons, at a news conference on Monday, they plan to turn their attention to re-signing forward Joe Johnson.
