I rarely do the "breaking news" type of story, but I found this interesting. The Phoenix Mercury have won the WNBA championship. In her blog, Diana Taurasi notes that head coach Paul Westhead apparently now has some sort of offer on the table from Seattle:
And I know the Sonics have a lot of money, but I think Paul Westhead should stick around and be the highest paid WNBA coach in the history of the league. He deserves it.
If Westhead goes to Seattle as an assistant coach and develops a run-and-gun offense with Kevin Durant and Jeff Green, the NBA just got a lot more exciting for the upcoming year. It's a great fit for Seattle's young team, if Ridnour can run the point correctly. And don't think I'm not envious that the Cavs aren't going out and doing a similar deal with Westhead. We need an offensive coach badly.
