Wizards to hire Saunders

Flip Saunders to Washington is a done deal.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Saunders will sign a four-year, $18 million contract to coach the Wizards. According to Wojnarowski, "Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld and assistant GM Tommy Sheppard have been courting Saunders for several months, and sources say that the framework of an agreement has been in place since the All-Star break." Interesting stuff.

I like the move, and it's a bonus that Sam Cassell will be coming with Saunders to be an assistant coach. Now hopefully everyone stays healthy.
