Former Pistons great and Raptors/Pacers/Knicks coach and executive Isiah Thomas told Scott Powers of ESPNChicago.com that he would love to continue his career. Thomas was fired last month after three seasons as coach of Florida International.

"I definitely want to be in basketball again whether it be coaching or as a general manager," Thomas said by phone. "My gift is basketball. I would love working with the kids. If it's the right college program, I would consider it. If it's the right G.M. job or coaching job in the NBA, I would consider it. I love the game. I just want to be in the game."
