Washington Wizards Links: Washington Wizards Hire New Assistant Coach, Ray Allen Rumors and More

Believe it or not, we’re just a few weeks away from the start of NBA training camp and Washington Wizards news is beginning to resurface. Here are today’s Wizardly Links.

Enjoy.

- The Washington Wizards added former Clippers assistant, Eisely, to their coaching staff after losing Cassell this summer. (via Wiz of Awes)

John Wall considered Sam Cassell his “mentor” and it was important for the Wizards to add a former guard to their coaching staff.  It’s no secret that the Washington Wizards’ success will be determined by the growth of their young backcourt and having coaches with similar experiences on the staff is key.

- Speaking of additions, the Washington Wizards are interested in adding the greatest 3-point shooter of all-time to their roster, but would it be a good fit? (via Wiz of Awes)

At this point in his career, I don’t think anyone expects Ray Allen to play major minutes each and every night. Ray Allen would not only give the Washington Wizards another scoring threat off the bench, but he’d be a great role model for Bradley Beal, who’s often compared to Allen.

- What should the Washington Wizards do with their final roster spot? (via WizardsXTRA)

Guys like Ronnie Brewer and Damion James are still available and would likely accept the league minimum contract to come and be that wing defensive specialist in DC.

- Was M.J’s run with the Washington Wizards “amazing”? (via BulletsForever)

But Jordan’s itch for playing put Jordan the executive (if not by name, then in practice) in a difficult position. He returned to a young team in 2002 and help lead them to a surprising 37-45 finish, though there were cracks in the foundation.
