Best Answer
He's probably peddling street corners...making I'm sure much more than the $21 million the Timberwolves offered him. Hey he's gotta feed the family!

    Lurking in the shadows behind the Sonics bench waiting for the prime moment to jump Carlesimo for old times' sake.

    retired a few years ago.

    He was in the news a month ago. He had had his 70-foot, $1.5 million, Italian-built yacht repossessed .

    Currently, he and his brother own the company Sprewell Racing, a part of Sprewell Motorsports, a San Gabriel, California-based chop shop that provides custom body market and aftermarket performance parts. Sprewell is himself an avid automotive enthusiast.

    Don't you have Wikipedia on your computer??

    As far as I know, he's not officially retired. But he has fallen off the radar; he apparently doesn't even respond to NBA calls.

    Latrell didn't get the contract he felt that he deserved, so he didn't play. If someone believes they are worth 'x' amount, then so be it. Can't knock a dude for believing in himself. I still think at 37 he is better than a few NBA players now.

    I got the impression he treated the NBA as his job and nothing more; not as something he loved to do. He probably loves basketball, but I don't think he liked the NBA as a business.

    I also thought he never liked the stardom either....I assume he is just as happy not being in the public eye and not considered a major sport-celebrity like his days in Golden State, New York and Minnesota.

    I am a Sprewell fan: I miss his game and intensity. I consider him one of the best and basketball purists would agree. But I don't expect to see him back. I'd say he is content with the fact he made it, he is able to live his life the way he wants and he is no longer under anyones contract. He's probably enjoying life now that he's Latrell Sprewell the businessman, the auto shop owner, and family guy.

    He wont be back as a player. And his past makes returning as coach pretty slim too. I'm disappointed I never got to see him play live!

    General assumptions.

    I would consider him retired. The guy is one greedy bastard.

    On October 31, 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves offered Sprewell a 3 year, $21 million contract extension, substantially less than what his then-current contract paid him. Insulted, he publicly vented his outrage, declaring, "I have a family to feed." He declined the extension, and, having once more drawn the ire of fans and sports media, had the worst season of his career in the final year of his contract.

    He hasn't played since then
