Mark Price Rumors
Mark Price (@Mark25Price) has agreed to a deal to join the Denver Nuggets coaching staff, league sources tell ESPN. Price’s ability as a shooting instructor had a major impact in his previous NBA job with Charlotte, and that will again be a part of his duties in Denver.
He’s about to play for his 18th coach in 18 seasons, which, as he points out, “literally might be a record.” And yet he’s scored more points than Magic Johnson or Chris Mullin and sunk more threes than Iverson and Mark Price combined. This season, barring injury, he’ll pass Ewing, Olajuwon, and Shaq on the games played list. His career has been both weird and wondrous. One of four men to score 50 for three different teams. The alltime leader in four-pointers, and by a mile. (Crawford has hit 50; J.J. Redick is second at 34; Steph Curry, the biggest threat to catch him, is at 20.) The only three-time recipient of the Sixth Man of the Year Award and the oldest player to earn one of the NBA’s five major honors.
The list of eligible candidates for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2017 was announced Wednesday afternoon, headlined by former NBA stars Mark Aguirre, Muggsy Bogues, Maurice Cheeks, Tim Hardaway, Tracy McGrady, Sidney Moncrief, Mark Price, Ben Wallace and Chris Webber.
