Not Longhorn related but... Hammon's name gets thrown around a lot whenever a high profile position in women's basketball opens up but I think most, including myself, assumed she was focused solely on becoming the first female NBA head coach. According to reports, she is set to become the highest paid WNBA head coach on a 5-year deal with the Las Vegas Aces replacing Bill Laimbeer. If she does go to Vegas, I'd say she has come to the conclusion she is never really going to get a legit shot at head coach in the NBA. I can't say I disagree with that because her resume is just as good as several NBA assistants who have been hired in recent seasons and more promising than a few of the mediocre retread head coaches that always seem to find jobs in the league. The Aces, formerly the Utah Starzz (1997-2002) and the San Antonio Stars (2003-2018), have a real connection to Hammond. She played for the SA Stars from 2007-2014 and the Aces retired her jersey last season. There are much worse WNBA teams to take over than Vegas. Aja Wilson is a restricted free agent but they're going to give her the max and hold onto her. Liz Cambage is an unrestricted free agent but could not be a guarantee to show up for any season and the oft-injured Angel McCoughtry hasn't been very reliable the past few years. Even with all that, a lot of talent on the squad.
