It sure sounds like Byron Scott's days as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers have turned him off the profession as a whole.
Scott said without hesitation that he has zero desire to return to the NBA as a coach, according to TMZ Sports.
"I've had enough of it," said Scott. "I'm enjoying the retired life and working at ESPN. I love that, and I'm going to continue to do that."
As far as the future of his former team goes, Scott doesn't project the 2017-18 Lakers as a playoff team, but does foresee brighter days ahead for the struggling franchise.
"This year? I don't think so this year. It depends, but I think they got a real good chance at being a whole lot better than they have been the last few years, that's for sure," he added.
Scott coached the Lakers from 2014-2016, with their 17-65 record two seasons ago the worst they've ever had. His .232 (38-126) winning percentage is also the lowest of any coach in Lakers history.
