Luke Walton has been doing television work covering the Los Angeles Lakers, but the NBA veteran is not conceding retirement yet.
"I want to play still," Walton said. "I’ve trained all summer as if I was going to get a call. The call never came, so, I’m going to keep working out ... If nothing happens this year, then I’ll probably admit that it’s officially over."
Walton has already met with the Lakers' D-League affiliate, the L.A. D-Fenders, to discuss fulfilling a player development role that will allow him to work out with the team along with his TV duties.
Walton spent last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
