First of all, I'd like to say that McInnis/Ford's wife thing comes to me not more than a gossip. No one showed a "concrete" proof. I've always believed the fact that "nobody is guilty before the judge gives eventual decision".

About Jeff, since we're running out of options, McInnis is a logical choice. Hopefully we can convince him to vet min. Because no other team would give him more than this.Sometimes the whispers get so loud that one of the subjects goes public to defend his reputation. In 1996, practically everyone in North Carolina had heard the gossip that University of North Carolina point guard Jeff McInnis had been sleeping with Phil Ford's wife. In his book A March to Madness, sportswriter John Feinstein delicately alludes to Duke fans razzing McInnis about "personal animosity between him and assistant coach Phil Ford." As that year's NBA draft neared, McInnis broke the official silence when he told the Charlotte Observer that Orlando Magic staffers had quizzed him about the allegations that he was leaving school early due to the fallout from an affair with Ford's wife. His answer: "Nothing ever happened. She is often hugging players. … The Duke people blew the whole thing up."
