After almost two decades on the sidelines, the 44-year-old Stephen has outgrown his father’s shadow. His fellow coaches find him to be thorough and meticulous. Players respond enthusiastically to his even-keeled, yet demanding, approach. “He’s always been around the game,” says Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who has worked with Silas since his rookie season. “He knows it inside and out. He coached my cousin in Cleveland, Dajuan Wagner. It’s like damn, feel me? He’s old, but he don’t look old.”
Dajuan now works out 5 days a week he works out at adrenaline sports performance in Cherry Hill N.J. With his trainer Chad Hallett and guy Ikpah Hallett, who trains college and pro athletes, says Wagner is almost ready to return to the NBA. Wagner is working hard to get all of his strength back but he never lost his ability to shoot, it’s a gift he was born with. “Basketball always came easy to me it’s just like riding a bike,” he told FOX 29.
He’s taking it slow. He’s played limited minutes in two other ABA games and doesn’t know how much longer he’ll compete before moving on to a higher level. He’s hoping to sign with a team overseas next summer, possibly in Europe or Puerto Rico, and then potentially play in the NBA Development League. “I ain’t chasing (the NBA),” Wagner said. “It don’t matter. But if the chance comes, I’ll look into it and see.”
Ikpah has spent four days each week with Wagner at a gym Wagner owns in Cherry Hill, N.J. At first, Wagner wasn’t in shape and could only last 15 minutes, but the sessions soon expanded to more than an hour. Wagner also trains with strength and conditioning coach Chad Hallett. He weighs 205 pounds, five more than during his NBA days. “This is the best I’ve seen him,” said Hallett, who has trained Wagner off and on for the past five years. “He’s definitely determined, the most determined guy I’ve ever seen.”
