No joke- inside source telling us that Isiah Thomas flew into Ocean City, NJ airport today & met w/ highest levels of Knicks management.
meeting was super secret/private airport, according to a source whose info i trust 100 percent but a source i couldn't personally trust less
We hear that Isiah will be on his 790 AM show at 6:20 p.m., presumably to discuss his future.
UPDATE: Apparently, Thomas didn't pick up his phone when The Ticket called. When we know more about what exactly is going on, you'll be the first to know.
UPDATE NO. 2: Full story in tomorrow's Miami Herald, but here's the university's take:
FIU sports information director Paul Dodson, who had been in contact with Thomas earlier Friday, said the school was "surprised" to hear LeBatard's report, but expressed confidence that Thomas would remain at the school.
"He's our coach now, he'll be our coach tomorrow, and he'll be our coach this coming fall," Dodson said.
Thomas, who is in the second of a five-year contract with the Golden Panthers, oversaw a 7-25 season last winter, but that hasn't stopped the former Piston great from amassing back-to-back impressive recruiting classes.
He's on the road this week, visiting recruits in Orlando Saturday and Los Angeles Monday, Dodson said.
