The Orlando Magic reached out to ESPN Analyst Chauncey Billups to take on the team's lead assistant coach position that’s open under head coach Frank Vogel.

According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Billups and the Magic were in serious discussions about him joining the Magic coaching staff next season, and they were willing to make Billups the highest paid assistant coach in the league to make it happen.

Billups, however, declined; he apparently has no interest in coaching, but instead has a desire to work in an NBA front office. If he had a choice of which he could work in, it would be in his hometown Denver, where he also spent part of his career as a player.

Until that happens, Billups will remain on the ESPN staff.
