Kevin Ollie’s name has been connected to the Lakers opening before the job was even officially open, and many consider the Los Angeles native to be a favorite for the spot. This morning, reports came out that Ollie will meet with the team about the job in the coming weeks. While anything can happen, especially with one of the top jobs in pro sports, Ollie seems to be downplaying those earlier reports, sending this tweet that is almost certainly referring to the stories about the Lakers job.
Don’t Believe everything you hear!! Only meeting I have is with my team on Thursday at Gampel.. We are preparing everyday for Greatness!!

While this is definitely reassuring to Huskies fans, if an offer is made, things will really get interesting.
