Could Michael Finley still help an NBA team on the court?credit: bleacherreport.com Once one of the top shooters and scorers in the league, Michael Finley has spent the past few years as a member of the Dallas Mavericks organization in their front office. After 15 years in the league, Finley had a better run than most players can claim to have had. Apparently, he’s not content with his playing career being over. A few years out of the league as a player, Michael Finley now wants to make a comeback, according to ESPN: Former NBA All-Star Michael Finley is putting his front-office career on hold in hopes of extending his playing career, according to sources with knowledge of his plans. Sources told ESPN that Finley, after participating in NBA pickup games all summer, continues to work out vigorously in pursuit of a contract that would give him one more run as an NBA player before shifting his focus to front-office work. As if the Rasheed Wallace comeback with the Knicks wasn’t surprising enough, right? Finley can probably still shoot, which would be just about the only on-court skill that he would bring to a team at this point. He could serve a purpose as a veteran presence to a young team looking to contend this year, but depending on him for anything more than that and spot minutes probably wouldn’t be a smart move. Not too long ago, it was released that Antonio McDyess also wanted to make a comeback, but with no success so far. It would be weird to imagine Michael Finley leaving the front office of the Dallas Mavericks midseason to go play for another organization, but it seems like that is what he’s looking to do. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Michael Finley Wants To Make a Comeback appeared first on Pass The Pill.
