Sadly, It's Official
A few minutes ago, the Mystics posted this statement from Sheila Johnson on their web site. This is Dr. J's statement, in its entirety:
“Angela Taylor's contract has expired and we were not able to reach an agreement on a new deal to retain her as general manager of the Washington Mystics. We thank Angela for all of her hard work on behalf of the Mystics and wish her well in her future endeavors.”The BCs are utterly depressed over this news. We don't know why contract negotiations broke down, but we are bereft at the loss of the most talented GM the franchise has ever had, gone after only two seasons. We had hoped the revolving door of Mystics management and coaches was a thing of the past, but this shocking and unfortunate news just dredges up unwelcome emotions.
We are still processing this and don't even know what to say, except that we are so grateful to Angela for the amazing job she did turning this team around in such a short time. We like her, respect her, and know that she's incredibly talented. We don't know what's next for Angela, but we are confident that she'll be successful at it. We just wish she were still here.
