Chris Paul is often mentioned as the current player who would make the best future NBA head coach. Paul has long been considered a coach on the floor, but he has no interest in the lifestyle of a head coach when he retires.
“No chance,” said Paul. “It’s the time. I don’t want to travel like that. I want to be around the game as much as possible. I watch every game. But I want to be around my kids and family.”
Paul will retire with approximately $300 million in career earnings.
