Doc Rivers hinted that Brian Scalabrine could potentially, maybe, possibly become a coach. (Boston Herald)
The Celtics additions this offseason have likely sealed the fate of Brian Scalabrine. The popular free agent wants to return, but the C’s don’t appear to have a spot on the roster. That doesn’t mean Rivers is closing the book on having Scalabrine around in the future.
“He’s as unselfish of a player as I’ve ever coached. I want him around, I can tell you that,” Rivers said. “In a playing role, if not, in another role. I just think there’s certain people that you hold onto and he’s one of them. So we’re going to try to figure that out.”
The Celtics should definitely hop on this quickly. Because if there’s one guy who can get through to the Green Mile, if there’s one guy everyone on the roster respects enough to listen to, if there’s ONE GUY with the commanding presence to keep all the egos in check, it’s Scal. Period.
