The Suns have offered center Scott Williams an assistant coaching job, which he could take immediately, but the 13-year NBA veteran wants to keep playing.

"I can neither confirm nor deny that," Williams said, smiling, when asked about the offer.

"There will come a time when I'll be ready to step into another role in basketball, but right now all I've known is being a player. That's what I'm comfortable with, and that's what I want to continue to do. But an opportunity to enter coaching at this level is a fantastic opportunity that has to be seriously considered."

Williams said it would be a difficult adjustment in the middle of a season.

"It would be a strange transition going from banging alongside the guys, then all of a sudden yelling at them for not running back on defense," he said. "You can't start yelling at somebody for trying to short-cut a drill when I was doing it a week ago."

Scott is not a bad player.. he would be a great assistant coach though, I think.. he has a great personality for it.

Looks like he's heading to Dallas for a playoff run.
