NBA teams scouting former Detroit Pistons MVP Chauncey Billups as head coaching candidate

Could Mr. Big Shot become Mr. Head coach?

Could Mr. Big Shot soon become Mr. Head coach? It sure looks like that’s a possibility.

A report from senior Yahoo NBA writer Chris Haynes indicates that NBA teams are scouting former Detroit Pistons Finals MVP Chauncey Billups as a head coaching candidate.

Billups, who retired in 2014, had been in talks regarding the vacant Cleveland Cavaliers GM position in 2017 before withdrawing his name from consideration; he had also previously interviewed for the Atlanta Hawks GM position.

Billups led the Pistons to the 2004 NBA championship in a stunning upset over the heavily favored Los Angeles Lakers, and was named Finals MVP.

The Indiana Pacers, New Orleans Pelicans and Chicago Bulls all have head coaching vacancies after former NBA MVP Steve Nash was hired by the Brooklyn Nets earlier today.

Let us know what you think!
