CHICAGO -- Former Chicago Bulls forward Brian Scalabrine has turned down an opportunity to be an assistant on Tom Thibodeau's staff and will become a broadcaster for Comcast New England, Yahoo! Sports reported Thursday afternoon.
Scalabrine, who played two seasons for the Bulls, will serve as a color commentator for Boston Celtics games next season. He spent five seasons playing in Boston before coming to Chicago. He admitted that the decision to turn down a chance to be on Thibodeau's staff was a tough one for him.
