Will Wade won't be back on bench until he talks to his boss

Apparently he backed out of one scheduled discussion with Joe Alleva when he found out the NCAA would be there. LSU is not reinstating him until they talk to him, and he’s not going to talk until the feds complete their investigation, according to a letter from Wade’s lawyer to Alleva (link below). So it looks like no matter how far LSU goes in postseason, Wade won’t be going with them.

LSU and the NCAA have also talked to Javonte Smart and his mother, and LSU thinks it knows who the handler was mentioned by Wade on the wiretap and will talk to him in the next couple of days, according to the BR Advocate.

If he had nothing to hide, he would talk to Alleva, the NCAA and whoever else needs to hear from him to get this resolved. Which pretty much confirms what we already know. He’s toast and he knows it.

Guess Wade won’t know what the truth is, at least until after the FBI finishes!
