It seemed likely that the Wizards would extend coach Randy Wittman’s contract following their second-round exit from the playoffs last month, and today the team made it official. From the Washington Post:
The Wizards have not disclosed the terms of the agreement, but Wittman will reportedly receive a three-year deal worth about $3 million per season. A person who has been in contact with the Wizards said the third season will be a team option.
Last season, Wittman led the Wizards to a 44-38 record, good enough for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards reached the playoffs for the first time since 2008, won a playoff series for the first time since 2005 and won two games in the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 1979.
