Locked on Women’s Basketball: Curt Miller talks building the Los Angeles Sparks, Connecticut Sun memories
Howard and coach Curt Miller chat about Connecticut and his time there — plus his vision for LA
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal and coach Curt Miller discussing his vision in LA and reminiscing about what he’s done in Connecticut. An in-depth, must-listen reflection on the past and future of one of the WNBA’s most important figures.
Curt Miller talks about his offseason and how it has been a humbling experience so far:
“Yeah, Howard, it was a humbling offseason for sure. And it hasn’t been very long between the end of the season, 36 hours later, being in Australia and then coming back. So it’s been a nonstop offseason so far for me, but humbling got to speak with some amazing people around the league this offseason. And just really excited to be starting the next phase of my career in LA.”

Curt Miller talks about having the opportunity to be back in LA and his vision for the team:
“It is an opportunity to build something special in LA; it’s a destination location for free agents. They have a lot of CAP available in space right away, so you can really put your input on it. I can’t wait to get to work with a new GM and a new coaching staff. And so I looked at it as a glass half full, we have a lot of hard work ahead of us and we don’t have a first-round pick.
A lot of people have cap space and a lot of teams have free agents that they need to sign. It won’t be easy, but I’ve never shied away from that in a building process. I’m excited about the potential that LA is and I saw when it was filled with star-studded players how special a place it can be. I want to help bring it back. There’s a reason that the franchise has won three championships. I’m humbled and honored to now be a part of it.”
