Master P wants to join New Orleans Pelicans’ coaching staff

In a new interview with TMZ, P says Pelicans would win NBA Title in 2025 with him on coaching staff.

Master P says he has the key to the New Orleans Pelicans winning the NBA championship

Percy Miller aka Master P has expressed his desire to join the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans’ coaching staff, TMZ recently caught up with Master P, his Son Mercy Miller, as the hip-hop mogul believes his guidance could help bring his hometown their first championship in franchise history.

P believes his hometown New Orleans Pelicans would win the NBA championship if he was on the team's coaching staff.

In a conversation with TMZ Sports, the No Limit Records boss endorsed himself as a potential coach for the Pelicans, who earlier this month were swept out of the first round of the NBA Playoffs by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

I think we got a great team; I just think that maybe we got to wait a couple more years, Master P said, adding, Y'all need to put me on the coaching staff next year, and we gon' win the whole thing.

While it's unlikely Master P will find himself on an NBA bench next season, he does have basketball bonafides. He was on the training camp roster for the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors in the 1990s and even made appearances in exhibition games.

The Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings also gave Master P tryouts for their summer league teams in the early 2000s.

Master P's son, Mercy, is also a 4-star prospect who is set to play for Houston in the fall. The Pelicans may not have a rap star in their plans moving forward, but they are expected to make noticeable changes ahead of next season. Executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin said he plans to make moves to improve the roster after the Pelicans were eliminated in the first round by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

"In the past, we've always erred on the side of continuity, and our takeaway has always been, 'Let's see this group healthy.' I think we've seen it enough," Griffin said. "This is not going to be a summer of complacency. It's time to get better."

Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reported the Pelicans are most likely to explore trading forward Brandon Ingram, who is heading into the final year of his contract.
