Brian Scalabrine PF CHI 5 Months
The Warriors had a discussion with Brian Scalabine about becoming an assistant coach.
The Warriors lost a couple assistants this offseason, headlined by Mike Malone joining the Kings. Scalabine was a color analyst for the Celtics last season after turning down a chance to join Tom Thibodeau's staff in Chicago in 2012. He was a fan favorite and his charisma could translate to the coaching profession.

Brian Scalabrine is "in line" to join Tom Thibodeau's staff as an assistant coach for the Bulls, two sources tell CSN Chicago.
Scalabrine had said earlier in August that he was still hoping to play, but he's received no interest in the NBA and is a natural fit to join the coaching ranks. As CSN Chicago writes, the "White Mamba" appears set to return to Chicago in a different role.

Brian Scalabrine will not return to the Bulls this season, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Scalabrine is always a fan favorite and would like to continue his run in the NBA, but it remains to be seen if there's a team willing to sign him. For now, the only two centers on Chicago's roster are Joakim Noah, who missed the Olympics with a severely sprained ankle, and journeyman Nazr Mohammed.

Brian Scalabrine hopes to continue playing in the NBA for as long as possible, after which he may pursue coaching or announcing.
"I'll play in the NBA as long as I can," said Scalabrine. "I'll get cut one day. That's just the only way I can really go. To just retire would be like quitting to me. They'll have to kick me out." There's a reason the guys is a fan favorite everywhere he goes, but the 34-year-old's useful playing days are rapidly coming to an end.

Brian Scalabrine has officially parted ways with the Italian team Benetton Treviso.
The "White Mamba" was popular with the team, but it appears he'll seek employment in the NBA for 2011-12. While he'll probably find a roster spot, he's not going to offer fantasy value.

Brian Scalabrine is enjoying his time with the Italian team Benetton Treviso, and he has no immediate plans to return to the NBA.
Scalabrine said he's taking it "day-by-day" but sounds like he could be in Italy for a while -- he's playing a big role in Italy but would barely crack an NBA rotation.

Brian Scalabrine has signed with Italian team Benetton Treviso.
Everybody's favorite 12th man has every reason to both make money and keep his game sharp with the lockout looming. There's no word if the deal includes an NBA 'out-clause,' but we wouldn't bank on it. Even if he stays a year, we can't completely rule him out for a return to the NBA.
