Mike D'Antoni is enjoying his role as an advisor to New Orleans Pelicans head coach Willie Green. But D'Antoni won't rule out a return to coaching in the future.

“Willie’s been great to work with,” D’Antoni said. “We talk and it’s great having a dialogue. He’s doing a phenomenal job. I enjoy it for right now. I try to add what I can. It’s all good. We’ll see. I’m not ruling it out. Too young to rule anything out.”

The 70-year-old D'Antoni served as an assistant coach under first-year head coach Steve Nash with the Brooklyn Nets last season. D'Antoni took a step back to try a role with less travel and became an advisor for first-time head coach Green and the Pelicans.
