After a contract extension for at least the next two years, the first order of business for Wizards' president Ernie Grunfeld is to decide whether or not to retain Randy Wittman as head coach for next season.
Wittman replaced Flip Saunders 17 games into the season and he has guided the Wizards to a 16-33 record, 18-46 overall.
"I think Randy's done a nice job with this team," Grunfeld said at a news conference Tuesday at Verizon Center. "Once the season is over, I'll sit with Ted (Leonsis), and we'll evaluate the situation just like we do every year."
The Wizards are currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak, which is the longest for the franchise since 2007. Before the Wizards thrashed the Bobcats 101-73 on Monday night, Wittman addressed his future with the team.
"I don't really worry about that," Wittman said. "Whatever happens with that I've got greatconfidence, whether that's a situation that continues here or somewhere else."
Wittman and the Wizards visitClevelandtonight and host Miami Thursday with a great chance to close out the season on a six-game winning streak.
"Right now, we want to try to end this on apositivenote, heading into next year and I don't think anybody has any idea of what's going to happen after this," Wittman said. "I can't worry about those things.Whateverhappens, happens."
