Surprise! (Not!) The BasketCases are not sure whether Tree Rollins was supposed to more or less preempt an official announcement, but according to this morning's Washington Post, Tree says we can expect to hear from the Mystics today that he will be back next season as the team's Head Coach, the "interim" now gone from his title.
It's hardly been a secret that this is where the team was headed. Tree tells the Post that he may "shake up the team's coaching staff," and also that "turning the team into more than just a playoff contender ranks among his highest priorities." Frankly, Tree, as fans we like the sound of that priority!
Good luck to Tree as the Mystics'
ninth new Head Coach!
Late Tuesday Afternoon Update: It's official!
