FILE - In this April 2, 2013 file photo, Washington Wizards head coach Randy Wittman directs his team in the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Washington. The aim is pretty clear for Wall and the rest of the Washington Wizards: get to the postseason. Team president Ernie Grunfeld says so. As does coach Randy Wittman. Speaking at a joint news conference Wednesday, Grunfeld says, "Our initial goal is to be a playoff contender and, ultimately, by the end of the year, make the playoffs." Wittman adds, "We want to make the playoffs. ... And there's no reason why we can't." Washington went 29-53 last season, missing out on the postseason for the fifth consecutive year.(AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)
