Wilkins update

While viewers did express dislike for Sonics guard Damien Wilkins during his debut as a sideline reporter for FSN during the Storm’s June loss to San Antonio, it wasn’t a determining factor for him not being included this week’s final airings on the channel, according to FSN. Wilkins was just testing the waters, commenting in this blog on June 3 about his crash course to learn the ropes.
After his NBA career and even possibly as soon as an upcoming Storm season, Wilkins hopes to transition into hoops broadcasting.
Wilkins wants to gain more experience in the field first, the Storm game being his first, a fact also mentioned by viewers of the game. FSN acknowledged this, too, and said it remains hopeful to work with Wilkins again when his schedule permits.
