Bogut wants to coach when retired, possibly NBL

"I'll definitely coach at some point, but I don’t think it will be in the NBA," the Los Angeles Lakers veteran told the NBA’s Australian website Sportingnews.

“The NBL could be a possibility, national team — the local junior competition.

“I’ll be in a position where I don’t have to do anything for money, so I can kind of do what I enjoy doing most.

“As a competitive athlete, professional athlete you always have that drive and then coaching is the next best thing once you’re done playing.

Maybe the Kings could take another punt... ;)

haha... well, he could player coach as I'm sure we still have a lot of marketing material with him in a Kings singlet that we could re-use from that whole Lockout attempt!

Hiring Bogut as a player/coach is exactly the type of move we would make on our way to our next 2-10 start.

So maybe when/if we go 2-10 with the highest profile non-experienced head coach the league has seen in a long time, we sack him and go with another inexperienced Aussie Legend as player/coach? That worked out for the Dragons, eventually... lol

Maybe not straight into the head-coaching role but an assistant at a high level first and see what he brings to the table.

His knowledge and experience is second to none, but a coach needs so many other qualities, so I expect he should be tested and I will not judge him until he can at least have the chance to prove himself.
