Truth About It: The Shaun Livingston Possibility

I'm moved in to my new place, but the Internet's still spotty until this afternoon. For now, read this post from Kyle about Shaun Livingston's game on Saturday. Maybe it's time to make a lineup change, I don't know. Also see Kyle's photo gallery of Livingston.

Grading Flip Saunders: Kyle Weidie on ESPN's Daily Dime

Kyle from Truth About It gives Flip Saunders a C- and wonders why he's been given a pass for a lot of the Wizards' struggles. I don't think he's been given a pass here at least, but it's a good read. Scroll down the page to find it.

Mike Jones: No more DeShawn Stevenson starting

Yay! About time I say. Flip says he's probably going to play Randy Foye to keep Nick Young's role consistent, though he could also go with Young. Philadelphia does start two small guards, so Foye makes a lot of sense there.

It's a good thing we're not playing the Minnesota Lynx this year

Don Zierden, coach of the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx has resigned to take a job as an assistant with Flip Saunders. The two worked together before when Saunders coached the Timberwolves.

Sam I Am Cassell is Official

The Washington Wizards Blog is reporting that Sam Cassell and Randy Wittman are officially official as assistants on Flip Saunders' staff. Get ready for more Gollum jokes people. [Ed. Note - the original fan shot by igetbucketsson was changed and slapped on the front page - Truth]

So Long Dave Hopla

Looks like assistants Phil Hubbard and Randy Ayers will be out too....according to Wizards Insider. No big surprise here as most any coach would want their own staff ... except ... Wes Unseld, Jr. will be staying on board. The Unselds are part of Abe Pollin's family ... and it just wouldn't be a franchise without a dose of nepotism. Speaking of ... Flip might hire his son.

Washington Times: Flip Saunders "a done deal"

Well, that was quick. Thanks to Mike Jones for the heads-up (got an e-mail from him after he posted that). UPDATE: More coverage from Mike Jones and from Michael Lee, who says that Flip will be bringing on Sam Cassell as an assistant.

Chris Mannix: Eddie Jordan Doomed by Wizards' Vanishing Defense

Great article by Mannix on EJ's defenisve deficiencies. Two things jump out at me -- Ernie Grunfeld almost fired EJ at the beginning of 06/07, when we started 4-9, and that EJ spends most of his practices working on offense. A must read.

Bye Bye Eddie

Editor's Note: Well, that happened quicker than I expected, but then again, Ernie Grunfeld's a man who isn't afraid to make bold moves. Ed Tapscott is set to take over, which is really interesting. Ed and Ernie have a history dating back to New York, but it's odd to see every single assistant passed over for the job. Including Randy Ayers. I wouldn't be surprised to see stories about EJ and EG fighting come out in the coming months. The big elephant in the room seemed to be that they didn't like each other. -PM UPDATE: According to ESPN, Mike O' Koren was also released today and Randy Ayers is now head assistant. (HT: Stet Sports Blog) Looks like Les Boulez are getting ready to can Eddie Jordan. I would say I can't believe it, but this franchise is looking more and more like its old self every day.

BDL on how the Wizards need CHANGE

[Ed. Note: For the record, I think it's still too early to be calling for anyone's head just yet, but I understand the sentiment. Of course, I also thought when the Colts fired Jim Mora that it was a big mistake, so take that for what it's worth. -Jake]
