NBA: Antoine Walker Says He Wants to Coach the Boston Celtics

Jun 24 2013, 6:59pm CDT | by

Former NBA star Antoine Walker says he would like to coach the Boston Celtics.

Former NBA star Antoine Walker says he would like to coach the Boston Celtics. 

According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, Walker wrote a tweet on Monday morning amidst the anticipation of current head coach Doc Rivers being traded to the Los Angeles Clippers for a first-round draft pick in 2015

"Boston fans its time for me to be the celtics coach!!!!"

Washburn says Walker confirmed to the Boston Globe that he is indeed interested in coaching the Celtics. Walker, 36, is retired from professional basketball after playing in the NBA Developmental League last season and is seeking a job in the NBA. He has had well-chronicled financial problems but has reached settlements with his creditors, per Washburn. 

Should Walker get hired, this wouldn't mark the first time an ex-NBA player without prior coaching experience gets the nod. Some names worth mentioning include Rivers, the Golden State Warriors' Mark Jackson and the recently-hired Brooklyn Nets' Jason Kidd. 

Walker spent a little over than seven seasons with the Celtics during his 12-year NBA career. He was drafted sixth overall in the 1996 NBA Draft out of the University of Kentucky and went on to average 20.8 points on 41.2 percent shooting plus 8.7 rebounds with Boston.  

He was traded by the Celtics to the Dallas Mavericks prior to the 2003-04 season, but was re-acquired by general manager Danny Ainge at the 2005 trade deadline. He was then traded to the Miami Heat as part of a five-team trade in August of 2005, winning his only NBA title the following summer.

He last played in the NBA in 2007-08, seeing action in 46 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 17.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

How Will Detroit Pistons Solve Their Obvious Josh Smith Conundrum?

Jul 22 2014 8:21pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Detroit Pistons may well go into the 2014-15 season with the same three-man frontcourt core that they employed throughout the previous go-round, even if it didn't exactly experience much success.  Andre Drummond is still the future of the franchise. He's not going anywhere.  But the fates of Greg Monroe and Josh Smith are still up in the air, with varying degrees of up-ness. The former is a restricted free agent who has yet to sign an offer sheet and could still end up pl ...
