Washington Wizards Notes, Quotes 2009-06-08

Washington Wizards Notes, Quotes 2009-06-08
--The Wizards added veteran assistant coach Don Zierden to coach Flip Saunders' staff. Zierden resigned from his position with the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx on June 2, four days before their season opener. Zierden worked under Saunders for five seasons with the Timberwolves and later joined his staff in Detroit in 2005-06. He has coached the Lynx the past two seasons.

--Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan was hired by the Philadelphia 76ers to be their head coach. He said he learned quite a bit after the Wizards got off to a slow start to the 2008-09 season, which cost him his job. "You have to be realistic about your team," he said. "With our best player out (Gilbert Arenas) and missing a lot of time, with the veterans that we had squeezing everything out of them during the playoff series the year before and with a really young team, your expectations have to change and that didn't happen. That's what I learned and that you have to be on the same page as a coaching staff and as a front office staff that these are our expectations and because we see it, it's realistic. Don't throw anything out there for the public and the media just to be attractive. It's important to be realistic, and in Washington I found out that it wasn't and I knew it wasn't and I knew it was here."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "There's a lot of stuff flying around out there that has no basis. There's just a ton of speculation, but there really is nothing substantial going on. With most of these deals being speculated about, I haven't even had a conversation with the opposing team. I read this stuff and laugh." -- Suns general manager Steve Kerr to the Arizona Republic on unfounded trade rumors
