Mark Cuban Expects to See Openly Gay NBA Player Before Woman Head Coach (Video)

Mark Cuban took some time to speak with TMZ recently, during which he touched on a wide range of topics — one of which was the prospect of a woman coaching in the NBA.

Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt, who has more wins than any other coach in the history of college basketball, was asked recently by TMZ if she thought there would ever be a woman head coach in the NBA. Summitt called it a "longshot," and said that she wouldn't consider leaving Tennessee if the opportunity were presented to her.

Cuban was asked for his take on the matter, during which he revealed that he thinks it will happen someday, although it might not happen in the near future.

Cuban was then asked about whether he thought there would be an openly gay player in the NBA before a woman head coach, and he said that he absolutely thinks that will be the case. Cuban said that he thinks a gay player will come out within the next three to five years.

The Mavericks owner also discussed his team's acquisition of Lamar Odom.
