Signs of life! Sounds to me like a sold hire.



Dan Padover, the WNBA's executive of the year for the past two seasons for Las Vegas, is leaving the Aces to take over as general manager of the Atlanta Dream. Announced Monday, this is the latest in a series of moves Atlanta has made to reconstruct its franchise since it was bought by new ownership in February.

"It's a basketball purist's dream," Padover said of the role he will take in Atlanta. "You're building in every way: through the draft, through free agency and through a leadership perspective. Kind of every reason you get into the profession."


While Padover rejoins ex-Aces assistant and new head coach Tanisha Wright here, the most recent coach at season's end gets to stick around Georgia, with is good news for him and UGA head coach Joni.


Darius Taylor, who had served as the Dream's interim head coach since July 24, now will be assistant general manager, which was announced Monday along with Padover's hiring.

Dare I say, good job, Renee and company?
