Swin Cash Rumors
Weatherspoon will be one of five Hall of Famers on stage with Cash when she is presented on Saturday, along with Auriemma, Isiah Thomas, Tamika Catchings and Tina Thompson. And as she watches her friend continue to grow in the latest stage of her basketball career, Weatherspoon knows “greater things are ahead.” Cash is now setting her sights on making history as the first woman to lead an NBA front office. “That would be the goal,” Cash says.
This year’s class includes nine honorees from the North American and Women’s committees: two-time NBA All-Star and four-time NBA champion Manu Ginobili, five-time NBA All-Star Tim Hardaway, two-time NCAA National Coach of the Year Bob Huggins, the NBA’s sixth-winningest coach of all-time George Karl and longtime NBA referee Hugh Evans. On the women’s side, the Hall of Fame is proud to welcome five-time WNBA All-Star, three-time WNBA Champion, and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Lindsay Whalen, four-time WNBA All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist Swin Cash and NCAA national champion and WNBA Coach of the Year Marianne Stanley.

Swin Cash is one of women’s basketball’s all-time greats. Now, she’s making strides in the men’s game and blazing a trail along the way. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Cash said that she wants to be the first woman president of an NBA team in history. “That’s where you have the autonomy to build and structure it in a way to have success,” Cash said. “Someday one of these 30 owners hopefully will take a shot on allowing me to be in that chair”
