Former star point guard Chauncey Billups is looking to join Steve Nash in the NBA coaching ranks. According to Yahoo Sports NBA Insider Chris Haynes, the former Pistons lead guard is interested in making the leap to the sidelines.

Former NBA champion and five-time All-Star point guard Chauncey Billups is interested in pursuing an NBA head-coaching job, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Billups, 43, has toyed with the idea of leading a team from the sidelines since retiring in 2014, but now it appears he’s fully invested in making the jump a reality, sources said.

Teams have now begun the process of researching Billups’ candidacy, sources said.

Billups, who retired after a brief 19-game stint in the 2013-14 season, was a key contributor on the Pistons’ title-winning squad in the 2004 NBA Finals. As a player, the Colorado native appeared in 1,043 regular season games.
