LOS ANGELES -- Elgin Baylor, out of pro basketball since his firing by New Orleans Jazz in 1979 following three years as head coach, has been offered a high front office position by the Los Angeles Clippers, it was reported.
The Los Angeles Times said in its Saturday editions that Baylor met with Clippers owner Donald Sterling Wednesday night and was offered the position as special assistant to the president. Baylor, 50, would have final say in all personnel decisions.
The two plan to meet again next week, the newspaper said.
Baylor, who played 14 seasons for the Lakers, is currently living in Los Angeles and working as vice president of a postal firm.
