surveyed the league’s general managers and Chauncey Billups finished first for “Which active player will make the best head coach someday?” with 32.1 percent of the vote.

Billups knows basketball better than most of his peers gets along well with teammates of varying personalities and has spent his career playing several different roles. That’s the profile of a good coach at least at this point in his career.

But it seems Billups is more interested in becoming a general manager though that job requires similar skills.

Whatever Billups decides to do after basketball I’d bet on him succeeding.
