Report: Wizards Offer Scott Brooks Coaching Job

by April 21, 2016

The Washington Wizards have reportedly made an offer to Scott Brooks to fill their vacant coaching position.

Brooks is said to be mulling a deal that would net him $7 million annually.

Per Yahoo:

Brooks was fired after the 2015 season in Oklahoma City, where he went 338-207 in seven seasons as coach of the Thunder. He led the Thunder to the 2012 NBA Finals.


Jeff Van Gundy has been the Houston Rockets’ No. 1 choice, but he is unwilling to talk to the organization while a coach – in this instance, J.B. Bickerstaff – is in place, sources said. Houston and Van Gundy are expected to engage once the Rockets are eliminated from the playoffs and see if there is a chance for them to partner for a second time, league sources said.
