Randy Wittman Optimistic About Wizards
The Wizards changed their uniforms before last season, but they have significantly changed the players inside those uniforms in the past 10 months. Seven players signed for this season were not on the opening night roster last season, when the Wizards finished with the NBA’s second-worst record.
The new cast of characters has made Randy Wittman optimistic about what’s ahead during his first full season as head coach. But he won’t get too far ahead of himself, though the team appears to be better than the one he took over when he replaced Flip Saunders last January.
“You don’t win any games on paper. That’s all we’re looking at right now, you guys are writing it down, and I’m reading it, and it looks good on paper,” Wittman said. “Nothing wins on paper. We’ve got to be able to now transform that into a team concept and go on the floor and prove that this is a good mixture.”
