Iowa State men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg will undergo another open heart surgery, this one on April 17 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., according to a Friday news release from the athletic department. Hoiberg knew this procedure was coming; he even mentioned it occasionally during informal sessions with reporters throughout last basketball season. The date was the only public unknown. "After my initial surgery to replace my aortic root 10 years ago, I knew that this was something that would need to be done at some point," Hoiberg said. "My valve has severe regurgitation and the time has come to get it replaced. I am hopeful that this will be my last surgery and I'm looking forward to getting this behind me." Des Moines Register

It is widely -- and I mean widely -- believed throughout the league that Fred Hoiberg, whose Iowa State Cyclones were bounced in the first round of the tournament Thursday by UAB, is the top choice of the Chicago Bulls to replace Tom Thibodeau in the event that the Bulls and Thibs indeed part company at season's end.

Kevin Arnovitz: Sense in NBA is that Hoiberg would be uber-selective about picking a gig. Won't fall into trap NCAA coaches have in past of taking any job. Twitter @kevinarnovitz

Saunders didn’t offer the job to Memphis Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger as reported, though they did have discussions. Joerger, a Staples, Minn., native, ended up signing a contract extension with the Grizzlies on May 27. “First of all, the interview process was interesting,” Saunders said. “We talked to a lot of people, a lot of good people. Some college guys, [Michigan State’s] Tom Izzo is a friend of mine, [Iowa State’s] Freddie Hoiberg. When you go through that situation they have things they want to do. To coach at [the NBA] level is difficult because there’s a lot of factors that get involved. So when it came down to it and we started going through everybody, I went to Glen this week and I said, ‘Here’s some options we have.’ Then Glen said, based on where our team is right now, I think you’re the best viable option to coach this team and move forward.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Tim Kawakami: NBA source: The Warriors had informal, testing-the-water discussions with Iowa State Fred Hoiberg before hiring Steve Kerr. My understanding is that Hoiberg and the Warriors were just measuring each other's interest and there was no offer or true interview. The Warriors' final candidate pool: Steve Kerr & Stan Van Gundy in deep negotiations, with Lionel Hollins and Hoiberg pending. Twitter @timkawakami
