Here's Wade's comments:
"We made some changes last year, we went forward, we will make more changes. we will address the same things and more than we did last year. I’m excited about being the coach here, it doesn’t matter if it’s one year or 10 years. With this team right now, I feel comfortable. We’ve gone further, we will go further. Our goal is to win the world championship, and that’s what I’m going to try to get done here. I think we have the team that can go forward and do that.
"Contracts are like players: You’ve got to come through," Phillips said. "We’ve been winning, but that’s not good enough. We want to win it all."
More to come, folks.
