Brian Scalabrine may retire from NBA

After 11 NBA seasons as a popular and quirky figure as a player, Brian Scalabrine said his playing career is likely over.

Scalabrine told Yahoo! Sports he has turned down a chance to stay with the Chicago Bulls as an assistant coach and has agreed to broadcast 11 early season Boston Celtics games for Comcast Sports New England on what he called “a trial run.”

Scalabrine had wanted to play another season in the NBA, but conceded, “There was zero interest [in me]. Not some, but zero.”
