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.
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.
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.
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.
