Billups Passed on Magic’s Offer for Family Reasons


He (Chauncey Billups) was linked to the Orlando Magic staff when former Pacers coach Frank Vogel was hired, but he turned down the offer to be the top assistant.

“I think very highly of (Vogel),” Billups said. “I think he’s a very good young coach in our league. So I looked at it, and he presented an awesome opportunity for me. I love him and I love Scott Perry in the front office, (GM) Rob Hennigan, those guys were very good to me as well.”

Billups, 39, said he declined the job for family reasons.
