Future Hall of Fame candidate Scottie Pippen told the Chicago Sun-Times on Monday that he likely won't play again this season and that there is almost no chance he'll play next season.

"I'd like to play once more to say goodbye to the game at this level,'' Pippen told the newspaper. "But I don't think I can go anymore. I want to, but I don't think I can."

Pippen, whose 17-year career has included six NBA championships, declined to announce his retirement at this time, reports the Sun-Times.

Pippen played just 23 games this season before undergoing knee surgery on Dec. 12. Problems with his left knee continued when he tried to return, and Pippen acknowledged that there's no reason to risk further damage this late in the season when the Bulls will not make the playoffs.

Chicago Bulls operations chief John Paxson had hoped Pippen could play at least 60 games for Chicago when the guard/forward signed a two-year, $10.3 million deal last year. It's likely Pippen won't hold Paxson and the Bulls to the second year of the deal, reports the Sun-Times.

Paxson told Pippen that his job now is to tutor newly acquired point guard Jannero Pargo, according to the Sun-Times. Pargo signed a 10-day contract with the Bulls after Rick Brunson was waived.

I don't know about coach, but he would be a good mentor to younger players.
