The Wizards won’t make a significant financial commitment to Wittman, sources said, and that’s a trend that more franchises are expected to continue. After the NBA lockout, many owners are determined to pay front-office and coaching staffs less money. The Wizards are a big-market team that could’ve successfully competed for higher-profile head coaches available, including Mike D’Antoni, Nate McMillan and Stan Van Gundy, but chose to keep Wittman on a shorter, less expensive contract.

from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports As we all know, WNBA teams like to spend as little money as possible on their front office staffs, and we saw two teams (Mystics & Liberty) move in this direction by combining the head coach and general manager into one position. This quote shows you that NBA teams are also trying to cut costs themselves with front office staff, in light of the post-2011 Lockout era.
