Sure, being a woman coach in the NBA is a dream but Lawson does not strike me as the type who would bail on those promises this early in her tenure. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if she outright declines to interview.
Perhaps. But I think if she explained to her recruits that she has a chance to make history, they would understand and might actually encourage the move.
What women's NCAA player would not want to say that they were recruited by a current NBA head coach? They could transfer, or stay and play for the next qualified coach that they hire.
Having a relationship with a current NBA head coach is also one hell of a positive for your network, which all of her players are 100% thinking about as well.
