If you're Ettore Messina's agent, Dave D'Alessandro has some advice: don't book him a flight to Newark. Dave hints in his mailbag that the Yahoo! report on Messina's availability was little more than a Kiki Vandeweghe comment blown out of context. The implication that Kiki will hire the next coach didn't sit well with Rod Thorn, who Dave says is "extremely ticked, vexed, riled, honked, irked". More on Yi's agent as well.
