Gersson Rosas Rumors
Ryan Saunders: “I look forward to building on what we established last season in terms of instilling a positive environment for our players to grow on and off the court. I’m excited to collaborate with Gersson and our staff to build a winning team that we can all be proud of.”
Gersson Rosas: “Ryan is an excellent communicator and has developed open and trusting relationships with our players. I’ve known Ryan for many years and have always respected his approach to the game, work ethic, basketball knowledge and passion. His coaching style and philosophies are ideal for the modern NBA and I am confident that as a partner he will get the most out of our players as we build an identity and a sustainable winning model.”
Danny Ferry, who was most recently the Pelicans’ interim general manager, and Gersson Rosas, who has since taken the president job with the Timberwolves, also spoke with the team that day. The Wizards interviewed their own VP of basketball operations Tommy Sheppard, who is running the organization in the interim, later that same week.
