Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ed Tapscott is the former interim head coach of the NBA's Washington Wizards. Tapscott, a graduate of Tufts University and American University Washington College of Law, was an assistant to Gary Williams at American University in the 1970s while a law student, and took over head coaching duties in 1982. An NBA executive level professional for years, Tapscott was the first employee hired to lead the Charlotte Bobcats as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, but resigned after serving as President and Chief Executive Officer in 2006. Tapscott formerly worked in the New York Knicks' front office, including a stint as interim president and general manager. He's perhaps best remembered in New York for the 1999 drafting of French center Frederic Weis who never played a game in the NBA, but much less credited for formulating the New York Knicks team, which culminated its season in the 1999 NBA Finals.show more
