The Wizards have offered Tim Connelly a four-year contract to lead their basketball operations, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.
The Wizards presented Tim Connelly with a four-year contract offer that is believed to be in the neighborhood financially of what he was looking for, sources tell @SInow. Connelly wanted five years—but is strongly considering the offer.— Chris Mannix (@SIChrisMannix) May 17, 2019
Team owner Ted Leonsis spoke to Connelly on Friday. Apparently, an offer was quickly made. Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reported that Connelly would want a five-year contract worth at least $4 million per year.
Those in the know say the #Wizards would have to start north of $4 million annually (for five years) to get Connelly to leave Denver.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) May 17, 2019
From the interview, it appears that the Wizards will offer him a salary around that amount, but contract length isn’t quite what Connelly hoped for.
We’ll see in the coming days whether Connelly will take the offer and make the move to the nation’s capital.
