David Blatt doesn't have interest in remaining in the NBA as an assistant coach but doesn't want to sit out next season.
“I don’t see myself not being a head coach somewhere but you never know,” he said.
Blatt was a candidate for several head coaching jobs this offseason.
“I’m going to coach next year. I’m not going to sit out. It’s not in my nature. I want to work,” he said. “I’ll be back somewhere. Could be anywhere.”
Blatt was fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers before the All-Star break.
“I went through the interview process, and I sincerely hoped to get a job,” he said. “It didn’t work out, and I’m looking ahead. That’s all.”
