'Pawn Stars' Head-Hunting for NBA Players
11/23/2011 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The guys from "Pawn Stars" have a job opening at their famous Vegas shop ... and they're looking to hire someone who really needs the cash right now ... someone who's out of work ... someone who can hit a turn around jumper from 25 feet away.
TMZ has learned ..."Pawn Stars" honcho Rick Harrison is adamant that he wants to help a struggling, talented, out-of-work NBA player earn a paycheck during the never-ending lockout.
We're told the job would require the baller to work the counter just like everyone else in the shop. As for salary -- we're told Rick will work out the details depending on who applies for the gig.
Chum Lee -- who also stars on the show -- tells TMZ he's hoping Rick can pull in a Lakers player ... especially Metta World Peace ... but relents, "If there aren't any players who take us up on the offer, I'm hoping some cheerleaders come down for the job!"
