ESPN correspondent Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Chauncey Billups is a candidate in the race for the head coaching position for the Indiana Pacers. Billups has been working as a broadcaster for the LA Clippers for the past one year and could be looking for a job change this off-season. 

The former 2004 Finals MVP has gained a reputation for being a great leader in the locker room throughout his career. Several top NBA guards such as Kyle Lowry and Marcus Smart attribute their development on the defensive end to Chauncey Billups.

Billups also has a relationship with Victor Oladipo and Malcolm Brogdon, who play for the Indiana Pacers. Perhaps Billups' arrival in Indiana could encourage Oladipo to stay with the team.
