The Washington Wizards will retain Scott Brooks as head coach for the 20-21 season.

Brooks is entering the final season of his five-year deal.

"He's a decorated coach. He's been in the league a long time as a player and as a coach. Very accomplished guy," Tommy Sheppard said Wednesday on a video conference call with reporters. "And I think we're in great hands next season."

The Wizards went 25-47 this season with a 1-7 record during the restart. Washington played the entire season without John Wall as he recovered from a ruptured Achilles tendon.

"Assuming that the season were to start, even in October, both John and Bradley would be ready to go in a normal preseason," Sheppard said. "I feel strongly when the first day of training camp starts, we will have -- knock on wood, barring anything between now and then -- John and Bradley ... at full health, ready to go."
