Louisville basketball: Could NBA teams eventually pursue Chris Mack?

Just when you thought the 2019 college basketball coaching carousel had come to a standstill, the biggest bombshell move of the offseason happened out of nowhere. It was announced Monday that Michigan head coach John Beilein was packing his bags and leaving Ann Arbor after 12 seasons to become the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, making him the latest coach to jump from the collegiate ranks to the pros. That left me thinking, could the same thing happen in the future to Louisville basketball with Chris Mack?

Last offseason Beilein began putting feelers out that he could be potentially interested in moving from the college ranks to the NBA, interviewing with the Detroit Pistons, who ultimately ended up settling on Dwayne Casey as the man to replace Stan Van Gundy.
