Trenton Hassell has said he would like to play another two to three years after his current contract ends June 30. But after that, suggests DIME Magazine, his time in the NBA may not be at an end. The 31-year-old veteran is one of five current players DIME thinks are likely to become head coaches.
DIME's Daniel Marks cites Hassell's professionalism this year as one reason why he's got the chops to run a team. "Hassell would frequently go from starting one game to being benched the next three. It was a season of up-and-downs, not just for him but the entire team, yet he never complained and never requested a trade." In fact, Marks compared Hassell to Avery Johnson.
