John Lucas: Turns to coaching career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas decided to retire from professional basketball this offseason and will serve as an assistant coach for the Timberwolves during the 2017-18 campaign, Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The 34-year-old Lucas went undrafted out of Oklahoma State in 2005, but enjoyed a long playing career as a reserve guard for six teams over parts of eight seasons. At the tail end of his playing days, he established a strong connection with Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau, with whom he played parts of two seasons in Chicago and another in Minnesota in 2016-17. Lucas will now follow in the footsteps of his father, John Lucas II, himself a former NBA coach, as he transitions into retirement.

John Lucas: Waived by Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas was waived by the Timberwolves on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

Lucas, who was not in the league last year, played in just five games for the Timberwolves. He last played on Nov. 19, and was never able to crack the rotation with the team. Given his age, the 34-year-old point guard will presumably have a hard time getting a look from another team.

Timberwolves' John Lucas: Remains outside of team's rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas (coach's decision) was inactive during the Timberwolves' 115-108 win over the Suns.

Aside from Ricky Rubio missing five games in November with a hyperextended elbow, the Timberwolves have endured no major injuries this season, which has made Lucas a regular fixture on the inactive list. Even when he suits up, Lucas typically finds himself third or fourth on the depth chart at point guard, keeping him safely outside coach Tom Thibodeau's rigid rotation. Don't expect Lucas to make more than a handful of appearances over the rest of the season.
