Washington Wizards: The wooing of Jeff Van Gundy continues. With everyone expecting the former Knicks coach to end up in Houston, the current TV analyst actually was in Washington, D.C., discussing the Wizards. "Yesterday I spoke to the Wizards for a good length of time," Van Gundy told the Washington Post. "We'll just wait and see how everything works out." Of course, the story didn't run without a quote on the Houston situation. "I was talking to somebody I really trust in basketball," Van Gundy said. "He said the biggest plus about Houston is every day Yao Ming wakes up, he's 7-foot- 5. Ain't that the truth."
