A Sports Celebrity Booking Agency

Chicago Bulls star Brian Scalabrine says he plans to retire after turning down a chance to stay with the Bulls as an assistant coach. Instead, he’s agreed to broadcast 11 early season Boston Celtics games for Comcast Sports New England, in what he says is “a trial run.”

The 34-year-old said he wanted to play in the NBA for another reason but there was absolutely no interest at all. In his final two seasons with the Bulls, Scalabrine said he developed a close relationship with head coach Tom Thibodeau, and that “saying no to Thibs was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make.” He added, “…I think a trial run with TV is the way I want to go right now.”

The NBA Champion will being doing the color analysis on three preseason and eight regular season Celtics games, as well as some studio work, through January. He’s also looking forward to a more laid back lifestyle that isn’t as “high profile.”

Scalabrine may be able to continue use some of his talents out on the court for Coaching Clinics and other opportunities to teach youth who want to develop their basketball skills.
