From current NBA players, who do you think is most likely to become a head coach?

I say Grant Hill. Very smart, very classy player.

Maybe a Nash or Kidd. I feel like point guards naturally have that high basketball IQ and have a lot to teach.

Sam Cassel. While he's not really playing, he's not retired.

grant hill would be good. I think nash would be better. he's more vocal and a better on the court leader.

As for sam cassel, while he could be good, i don't think he will be. He's too polarizing and I can see him getting into his players faces and trying to get on the court himself. Plus he has the ugliest mug in sports

I'd say Chauncey Billups, he's already a coach out on the floor for George Karl.

Derek Fisher or a Grant Hill...very classy guys. Good in the community and with people.

Steve Nash is gonna at least be the coach of Team Canada one day so I would say he would be a pretty good coach someday. Jose Calderon seems like the kind of guy who would become a coach somewhere although maybe only in Spain.

Many point guards would probably be good coaches IMO.

Steve Nash already said he won't ever coach, just not for him.

I agree. He's headed for franchise ownership in the MLS (http://www.whitecapsfc.com/archive/feature072508018.aspx) when he retires.

I think it will be KG. Imagine that...he gets his players hyped up by banging his head on the locker room wall and yelling.

LOL KG during a timeout:

KG: ANYTHING'S POSSIBLLLEE!!
opposing asst. coach: O ******* I think he just yelled anything's possible. WTF do we do now?!!
opposing coach: O....M....G

It would probably have to be a point guard or role player. Most superstar players don't have the patience with others. Could you imagine Kobe or KG trying to coach.

Others have already said it, but Nash or Fisher would probably have what it takes.

Jacque Vaughn I think. A really great guy, and he helps out Pop from what Ive seen

while he isnt playin, Eric Snow is still on Cavs payroll and roster. He will be next coach. He has been voted already by peers in nba most likely to coach. He wants to do it and it will happen. He already was interviewed for bulls job before del negro got it. He will be a Larry Brown type coach I think. although he might be slightly more willing to play rookies and young guys.

Well i wouldnt vote for stars, and more for role players and average starters, since most of the coachs used to be those kind of players, Riley, Jackson, Smith, Sloan ( even if his number is retired in Chi, Dunleavy, Karl all of them were just Ok players , some even Sucked like George Karl....

I can definetly can envision Dereck Fisher, Derrick Martin, Shane Battier becoming Coaches, and i also think Jose Calderon will take his chances too starting in the spanish league probably.

mm they are international but i can also see Manu and Garbajosa as coaches.

I forgot Hunter.

And of course we can be highly sure that Shaqs ego will require him to try it at least once.

I dont bet on his success,he will be another Magic Johnson crappy coach like.

Tayshaun prince. In sporting news magazine, jim boeheim, who coached prince and team usa during the olympics as an assistant coach, was quoted in saying "(prince) is a very smart player, and will be a good head coach someday." I follow the pistons and saw prince on the bench during a game once yelling out to his teammates on where to be on the court. He looked like a coach in a basketball uniform.

I'm sorry, but just who the **** is Sprewell supposed to choke if he's the head coach? Plus we all know he can't 'feed his family' on a coaches salary.

Good point guards are excellent frontrunners to become coaches because they know how to set up and control the offense based from their experiences.

Lindsay Hunter already was a coach technically with the Pistons. He was the rare coach/player.

Also Rasheed Wallace (as controversial as he may be) is considered the most court smart player in the league by many people and authorities. I believe it was ESPN The Magazine who did a huge article on it. If he has the desire to coach, i think many teams would be lining up to have him.
