Chris Duhon is slated to be the latest in a long line of former Duke players under Mike Krzyzewski to pursue a college coaching career, as he is expected to be named an assistant under new Marshall head coach Dan D’Antoni on Friday. “You got to just start thinking as a coach,” Duhon told WSAZ’s Rich Donnelly when asked about his transition from being a player (Duhon was most recently a member of the Los Angeles Lakers last spring). “You can’t expect guys to do it the way that, you know, you did it as a player. You have to adjust to them in ways, try to teach them the right way to do it and adjust to the way they play and their playing style.”

“Chris is going to stay in shape and he is going to return to the game,” Bradbury said. “He obviously appreciated the willingness of Caserta to sign him and give him the opportunity. But it just wasn’t quite the right time for him to start playing again.”
Late last month, veteran NBA guard Chris Duhon was ready to get his career restarted, signing a contract to play with JuveCaserta of the Italian League, with an eye on an eventual return to the NBA. But, after agreeing to the deal, Duhon had a change of heart and backed out. The reason, it turned out, is that Duhon’s wife, Andrea, was pregnant with twins, and Duhon decided he needed to remain near her rather than make the trip across the Atlantic. It turned out to be a sound decision, as last week, Andrea Duhon gave birth to twins, two months premature. The babies and their mother are healthy. “Obviously, Chris wants to play, he has a lot of basketball left in him and he was excited to get started again,” Duhon’s agent, Kevin Bradbury, said. “But when he went over the situation, he felt like is family needs him to be home.”
Chris Duhon will not play in Italy with Pasta Reggia Caserta, a source told Sportando. The NBA caliber guard signed the deal with Juve Caserta last Saturday after Adrian Wojnarowski announced the agreement between the two parts. But Duhon had a second thought and he decided not to play in Italy.
The manager of the team today talked also about Chris Duhon on air with Prima Rete: “There are 30% chances for us to have Chris Duhon for the season. It is a very complicated deal”.
Four months after a hit-and-run accident, ex-NBA guard Chris Duhon has signed with Caserta in Italy, his agent, Kevin Bradbury, told Yahoo Sports on Friday night.
According to the report, Duhon landed on the hood of the car and his head hit the front windshield. The former Magic player was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center by ambulance. Police said when they questioned Duhon about the incident, he didn’t remember anything. They said he plans on pressing charges against the driver of the black Lexus if he is caught. Hernandez told FOX 35 by phone that Duhon was able to walk out of the hospital later that night.

Orlando police investigators said a driver intentionally hit a man with his car in the middle of a Plaza Parking Garage in Downtown Orlando around 7 p.m. Saturday. It turns out, the man struck by the car is former Orlando Magic Guard, Chris Duhon. According to the police report, Duhon and his brother-in-law, Julio Hernandez, were walking on the level 2C of the parking garage when the driver of a black Lexus started honking at them to get out of the way. Hernandez told police as the Lexus passed by, the driver rolled down his window and some words were exchanged. Then, police said driver stopped, got out of his car and argued face-to-face with Duhon. Hernandez told officers that he separated the driver and Duhon and that he and Duhon kept on walking and the suspect got back into his car. As Duhon and Hernandez got about twenty feet away from the Lexus, Hernandez told police the driver accelerated towards them. Hernandez said he was able to get out of the way, but Duhon was hit.
As for adding a veteran or two to this young group, particularly a backup point guard to work with rookie first-round pick Michael Carter-Williams, Hinkie said there’s not one position he’s targeting. “We’re active out on the market, talking with lots of people,” he said. “I’m focused on talent more so than (position).” The Sixers were mentioned as having interest in journeyman Chris Duhon, though other teams have apparently also talked to him.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Knicks and 76ers are showing interest in free agent guard Chris Duhon, league sources tell Y! Sports.
