Ronnie Price has been opened a job by Earl Watson to join the Phoenix Suns as an assistant coach.

Price signed a two-year deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder in August but was released before the start of the regular season.

"Just come," Watson said. "We need your presence. You wanna do front office work? You wanna do scouting? You wanna work with a player? Just take a trip. Come have dinner with me one time. I’ll never let you leave. That was the sales pitch."

Price is 33 and wants to continue his playing career.

"Ronnie Price is not open to the idea," Watson smiled. "He’s too competitive. I gotta call him every Sunday."
