Pippen eyeing return to NBA
Tired of retirement, Scottie Pippen says he wants to return to the NBA for a chance to win his seventh championship ring.
Pippen, 41, said Friday he is hoping for a late-season return to a contending team — preferably in a warm-weather city — nearly 2 1/2 years after he left the league.
"I know that I have the skills," Pippen said. "I think it's sort of been on my mind the last couple of months. It's just about me going out and polishing my skills."
He hasn't played since his retirement on Oct. 5, 2004, following a 17-season career with Chicago, the Rockets and Portland. He won six titles with the Bulls in his famed role as Michael Jordan's wingman.
