Brian Scalabrine Turns Down Coaching Offer From Chicago Bulls

Brian Scalabrine's career continues to be interesting. So much so that the NBA journeyman who never averaged more than 6.3 points per game in 520 games over all or parts of 11 NBA seasons had a choice of either becoming an assistant coach for the Chicago Bulls or broadcasting games in Boston.

Scalabrine chose the latter. He spurned the Bulls and will call games for Comcast Sports New England this season.

Scalabrine became something of a fan favorite over his NBA career, which included stops in New Jersey, Boston and Chicago. He also played for a few months in Italy before returning to the Bulls. The 6-9 forward from USC won an NBA championship with the Celtics in 2008. He is 34 years old.
