Wizards ‘Feel Good’ About Direction of Team
Given their financial restraints, good fortune in the NBA draft lottery and swift blitz through free agency, Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld sounded pleased with where his team stands after an already productive offseason.
Coach Randy Wittman is still hopeful that the team can do more – possibly another big tweak – between now and the start of training camp in three months.
The contrast in their opinions of the current roster was noticeable on Thursday, when both Grunfeld and Wittman held separate sessions with the media, roughly an hour apart, to discuss the state of the team.
“I think we feel good about the team,” Grunfeld said at Thursday’s news conference. “We have 14 guys under contract. We’re ready to go to training camp. You never what know what happens between now and training camp. There’s always a lot of discussion going on, but I think we have most of our positions filled. We’re two deep at least at every position, and with the versatility we have, we probably have three guys at every position, so we feel good about where we are. We have a lot of work ahead of us.”
