Master P’s dream to coach the Pelicans is almost complete after reporting he’s signed with one of the biggest agencies in sports to help him get the job!
Just a while back, Master P announced his wishes to lead his hometown team, affirming he believes he’s the right guy to help with wins and keep young superstar Zion Williamson fit.
Master P’s run-in with TMZ
TMZ met up with Master P out in Beverly Hill to receive an update on his dream, and it’s been affirmed that he’s already making big moves to make it happen.
“Right now, I just hired a sports agent,” Master P says. “So, you know, to be an NBA coach, you have to have a sports agent.”
However, it’s not just a random sports agent, according to Master P, he’s teaming up with Roc Nation Sports’ Raymond Brothers. He’s a Louisiana native who’s repped players from the Ball Bros. to Caron Butler to Zach Randolph.
“He’s a good friend of mine and he knows what he’s doing,” Master P continued. “I’m not an X and O coach, but I understand people management. We don’t need another X and O coach. (Stan) Van Gundy was an X and O coach, it didn’t work. Times have changed. I think I have the best people management skills than any NBA coach can have.”
Bringing out the best
Additionally, Master P is confident he can bring NOLA to prominence even if Zion wants out. He told TMZ he’ll be able to help the remaining teammates strive and reach their full potential.
“I talked to John Lucas, he’s willing to support me and come with me on this journey. So, I will have John Lucas that knows the X’s and O’s on the staff with me to make this happen. So, I got all the pieces to the puzzle.” Master P then finished off with, “I think this will be history!!!”
