Chauncey Billups wants front office role after he retires
Chauncey Billups is not ready to retire just yet, but the 36 year-old point guard already has plans after his storied career is over. Two years ago, Billups was brought to the Los Angeles Clippers, not only to mentor Chris Paul and to play meaningful minutes at the 1 and 2 positions, but also to be a player-coach.
“My desire was never to coach, but it’s funny because I’m actually coaching as I’m playing now,” Billups said. “Do I think that I could probably be a good coach because of my experiences? Of course, of course. I know how to handle different egos. I know how to manage guys’ expectations.”
But coaching is not something that is Billups number one option, instead, Billups sees himself in more of a front office position.
“I could be good, but my desire has always been a front office, president or GM role; [to] put the team together. As my career winds down, I’ll be open to anything,” Billups said. “I’d be best served in the front office.”
