If not, he'll fuck this team up to where they'll never be able to achieve the level of success they could rise to.



Hughes is too fascinated with the Big 12 , he makes draft picks like Kendra Wecker and expects greatness. Its like he only evaluates regional talent . Doesn't pay much attention to the national landscape of WCBB .

He is not going to be the GM.

Seattle must not be doing that bad financially if they can have separate people doing the coach and GM duties.

the seattle storm is the worst front office of the league.

Talked to Dan this morning for a podcast. Seems really excited about just coaching, and having a team that has three stars already plus the #5 draft pick.

I don't know if he'll still be doing a broadcasting role or not. Hopefully not, and that will give him a better opportunity to see what's happening nation wide on the collegiate level. When you're broadcasting in a particular conference all the time, it's natural to become somewhat psychologically attached to that conference (see Debbie Antonelli...see Mary Murphy...et al)

No matter how good you are at evaluating talent, you are bound to make some blunders along the way. IT happens.

Dan on Dishin & Swishin:

https://www.fanragsports.com/dishin-and-swishin-dan-hughes-is-seattles-new-head-coach/

Topics covered include:

– Impressions of the WNBA finals, and how to compete in the same conference as Minnesota and Los Angeles

– How to stabilize the inconsistencies and improve the Storm’s playoff seeding

– What to say to those that see him as “just another coach” instead of someone new and younger

– Building a roster for 2018 and what to expect.

– Can he catch a fish?

I will agree with this , he has not shown he can build a team in his tenures..

2007 San Antonio 20-14
2008 San Antonio 24-10 (WNBA finals)

2015 San Antonio 8-26
2016 San Antonio 7-27


Sooooooooooo 1 Winning season in the last 8 years....and if you want to be technical its 3 out of 12 , But he sure can build a squad i guess every 4 years or so . Rolling Eyes


I don’t remember him building anything. He lucked into getting Becky Hammon and that was about it. Aside her on their rosters, I don’t remember much of anything else that was any good.


IMO, he was an above average drafter. Sophia Young, Danielle Robinson, Danielle Adams, Moriah Jefferson, and Kayla McBride were pretty good value picks.


Young. A homophobic bitch that her teammates hated and thus left the league as a result of the backlash. Robinson has turned into a bust. Adams booted from the league for smoking too many doobies and being waaaay out of shape and is now a bust. Jefferson and McBride are from the two best colleges that produce star players. He got top picks from being so bad every year. All those so called great players he built did exactly what for the franchise??

I think most would've generally been more excited by a name that meant nothing to them. It's not like most people could've picked Curt Miller or Amber Stocks out of a lineup, but one's become Coach of the Year and the other seemed to be working things out in the second half of her first season. Just like with draft picks, unknown theoretical potential is more exciting than proven general mediocrity.

Agler wasn't going to stay for the rebuild. He would have traded Loyd for an over-the-hill vet. There was no surprise here when he landed with LA.

No doubt, we miss Karen Bryant.

I never said that he was great at building teams. Without high draft picks its hard to build a championship contending team. You cant just pull allstars or franchise players out of a hat.

Agler was under contract. They didn't have to let him go.

Young was a three time all star within her first four years of the league, and made all WNBA four times as well. Don't see what the homophobic comment has to do with this.

Still a three time all star, and led the league in assists in 2013. Decent value at the time she was chosen.

Still, at the time of the 2011 draft she was a good value pick. What any of these players are doing now has literally nothing to do with my comment.

Not once did I say any of those players were great. I said they were good value picks.

My only concern is whether Kaleena will get more playing time.
I don't understand how the NCAA all time leading three point shooter is riding the bench.

I thought it was something going on between her and the old coach but who knows.

I would love to see her knocking down 3's, Loyd creating and scoring and Stewart doing what she does.

Hell Dan see if you can pick up Jefferson. She is coming off of injury and SAS seems hell bent on the Plum experiment. She could be a cheap yet fruitful pick up

To be brutally honest, an out of shape one-trick pony simply doesn't get much time on the floor in the W.

I might have taken a gamble with James Wade out of Minnesota. His work with Fowles was huge in her development to the elite level this year (according to her), and has now coached under both Hughes and Reeve, with the full championship experience in Minny. With a young, potentially elite player in Stewie, it might have been a great fit. Plus the whole, young, new, and exciting thing that excites fan bases.

All that said, I don't hate the Hughes pick. It's just that you pretty much know what you are going to get. Perhaps that is enough for Seattle to take the next step with the young players he can develop.

They won a championship with Agler, but his style of riding the starters did them no favors this year. Would have liked to have seen Wiese shooting 3's all year - and in the finals. But in the end, Minnesota does have 4 Olympians and Brunson.

Less to gripe about but don't know about being excited. At least I don't remember excitement about Stocks or Miller. Although Miller had been a head coach somewhere so his bio could read "led" instead of nothing but "helped lead" for Stocks.

Come on...Agler had the sparks in position to win the championship...up 2-1 with a chance to close minny out at home in game 4.

My gut says the outcome of the last two games and regular season record would have been better if he played his bench more. But I am surprised to see that Carson only played 4 minutes less per game this year off the bench. But in the playoffs she played 13 minutes a game less. And in the end, Minnesota had 4 Olympians and Brunson.

Her release is too slow for the faster defenses in the WNBA. She has been given plenty of chance to get into games and shoot and has a 32% lifetime 3p%. That sort of performance plus being a poor defender and out of shape is why she is riding the bench.

Hughes has been a good coach with perimeter-oriented teams before. I'm confident there will be more of the same here.

Adams is the reason Stewart is on the storm and not the stars hmmm,
Hughes did not seem to want to lose that last game in the 2015 season.

Adams had about 3-4years of significant playing time (>20mpg). KML is practically svelt compared to Adams and a much better shooter.

It is not clear to me why she is not playing much. Her supposed replacement Whitcomb gets just as much/little time.

My hope is that with a coaching change comes a second opportunity

But is she really? At the WNBA level? Professional sports are "prove it" leagues. What you did in college is forgotten pretty quickly if you can't maintain that level in the pros.

Adams got playing time because she came out of the gate hitting her shots at a high clip. Remember, she even won a rookie of the month award in June of 2011. She was a liability on defense, but hitting her shots made it feasible to play her. And even then, as tine has gone on and she hasn't improved on that end better options have cut her play time dramatically.

KML didn't hit her shots in the time she was given. When she was asked to "prove it" in the minutes she had, she didn't do it. She isn't going to be put out there with her terrible defense if she isn't performing at a ridiculously high level on the offensive end. And she has never shown she can do that consistently.

KML looked good in the beginning of the season when she came back in better shape after her overseas play. Then she injured her knee and it sat her back again. Bad lucky IMO. Lets see what another year overseas does for her condition and game

Also shooting ability for someone who can at least masquerade as a post is transformative in a different way from a wing who can shoot. Unless you're really exceptional in other ways, being able to at least vaguely shoot is pretty much expected from perimeter players. From bigs it's unusual, and can be very useful.

And KML's shooting hasn't been good enough for someone where that's virtually their only skill. She's barely league-average from three-point range, so if you're not bringing anything else to the table, you're not gonna play.

Great pickup by seattle....Dan is one of the better coaches in the wnba despite his record.With the exception of B.Hammon,Dan really never had great talent in san antonio.S.Young was good but she was a undersized PF,and a liability on defense.For most of Dan's tenure in san Antonio,his starting centers were a past her prime R.Riley,and J.Appel.....Dan at the very least has one young superstar(Stewart),and another top 20 player(Loyd).All seattle needs to do now is upgrade the sf & center positions.Then add some bench depth.

Hughes was also the GM in SA. so if he had no talent, that was on him.

from WNBA.com:

The winningest coach in San Antonio Stars history, Dan Hughes returns for his ninth season in 2014. In his dual appointment as head coach and general manager, Hughes oversees the Stars’ basketball staff, the team’s roster development and all player acquisitions, while also coaching the team. Hughes stepped aside as head coach to assume a full-time general manager role for the 2010 season and resumed his dual roles in 2011.

Dan likes to have control so I'm pretty most if not all player movement decisions will be his, like it was for Cooper.

I call a little bit of bs on that one. The Storm got LJ and Birdy back to back because we sucked and thats why we won 2 championships. There is luck involved if whoever lands in your lap. He didnt get those kind of players. All he had was Hammon and she couldnt do it all by herself

Not according to him...he only took the job he said because he wants to coach not be GM. Listen to my podcast.

I already know why he said he didn't want to be GM from when he first took the job. He said he didn't want to have to coach players who might resent him for actions in contract negotiations. That doesn't mean he didn't want control on who comes and goes on the team. All coaches should want that. Read my posts.

I think I'm gonna go with the guy who actually talked to him both on the record and on background over the guy who read something online.
