WASHINGTON (AP) Washington Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said coach Scott Brooks will be back in 2020-21, the last season in his five-year contract.
"He's a decorated coach. He's been in the league a long time as a player and as a coach. Very accomplished guy," Sheppard said Wednesday on a video conference call with reporters. "And I think we're in great hands next season."
Washington went 25-47 this season -- going 1-7 in the NBA restart -- and missed the playoffs for the second time in a row, after getting there in each of Brooks' first two years.
