NBA GMs think Chauncey Billups will make best coach among active players

NBA.com surveyed the league’s general managers, and Chauncey Billups finished first for “Which active player will make the best head coach someday?” with 32.1 percent of the vote.

Billups knows basketball better than most of his peers, gets along well with teammates of varying personalities and has spent his career playing several different roles. That’s the profile of a good coach, at least at this point in his career.

But it seems Billups is more interested in becoming a general manager, though that job requires similar skills.

Whatever Billups decides to do after basketball, I’d bet on him succeeding.

    Off topic here but RealGM are reporting that the Nuggets are gauging the trade value of Kenneth Faried. If we are not gonna extend Monroe then how about a Monroe for Faried swap. Extra players would have to be added and a Monroe/Jerebko for Faried/Chandler swap works on trade machine. I hate the idea of losing moose but it is clear that we will not get equal trade value for him but I’d love to have manimal in a pistons uniform. He’d instantly be our new Rodman and#10 would be free for him to wear too.

      A little part of me wants to believe that this is really Dennis Rodman, responding here.

    I know Chauncey doesn’t want to be a coach, but he really should change his mind because I think he has potential to be a really successful coach and lead some team to a championship one day from the sidelines.

    I think he could be a good GM too, but he’s really got that special IT factor when it comes to coaching. If he does sometime in the future, I would love for it to be for the Pistons. 

    I’m just glad he is back in the organization now and likely to stay on in some capacity afterwards. He’s going to be a major asset going forward with this next era, be it player, coach, front office, whatever. Just having him around the team everyday and imparting his knowledge and confidence to the players/coach’s is going to make us very successful.

    I sort of just assumed he was already unofficial coach of this team and the natural successor to the official position once Mo Cheeks gets fired in 10-24 months.

  • […] picking him is a bit of a cop out, since NBA GMs agreed he would be the best head coach of all current NBA […]
