ly The As-ociated Press
0 CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Bob
Cousy, new head coach of the Royals of the National Basketball As-
sociation, has asked to return as an active player.
Cousy, former star of the Boston Celtics, retired in 1963. The
Enquirer said the Royals have asked Walter Kennedy, NBA president.
to intercede with Celtics General Manager Rd Auerbach to release
Cousy from the Celtics voluntary retired list.
Kennedy suggested the matter was best negotiated between the
two clubs, the Enquirer said, and the Royals are awaiting an answer.
If approved Cousy, at 41, would be the oldest player ever in the NBA.
Cousy coached at Boston College until last year, when he resigned
to coach the Royals. He had no comment on the story.
