A day after the Minnesota Timberwolves put Tom Thibodeau in charge of Karl-Anthony Towns’ team, John Wall and the Washington Wizards have found a new head coach. Former Oklahoma City Thunder head coach, Scott Brooks, is charged with taking Wall’s Wizards to new heights.
Brooks took the SuperSonics from Seattle to Oklahoma City. As the head man of the Thunder, he went to two Western Conference Championships and lost in the 2012 Finals to Lebron James’ Miami Heat. Brooks’ .620 winning percentage is the highest by any head coach to never win The Finals.
Wall and Towns have two high quality coaches, but as for Boogie, Rondo, and Willie Cauley-Stein…that’s a different story. Kings’ beat reporter for the Sacramento Bee, Jason Jones, has the scoop on how they’re selling the team to potential coaches.
“One message Kings are sending to coaching candidates is front office will support new coach in disciplining players, including Cousins. Kings still fighting the notion Cousins runs the franchise. Funny because he runs it when the coach he liked got fired. Also funny that DeMarcus Cousins runs the team when the coach he didn’t want was still hired, too. Kings want everyone to know George Karl was not fired for DeMarcus Cousins, new coach will not be hired for DeMarcus Cousins.”
The Sacramento disaster probably won’t be solved anytime soon, but at least Towns and Wall are sitting pretty. Who knows, maybe KD might want to come home to play for his old coach when he hits the free agent market?
