Tri-Cities Fever Always in a State of Change

Posted: Updated:

KENNNEWICK, Wash. -- If you ask him, Tri-Cities Fever head coach Adam Shackleford will tell you this year's roster is much more talented than last year's. The team brought in 41 players to start camp and they have 7 returners from last year's team.

But, that doesn't mean Shack is completely satisfied with his roster.

"We're going to make changes," said Shackleford. "We're going to play the best players and every day they know I am on the phones at night trying to find a better player if I feel like there is a need."

"It's just a way to make people work hard and keep their egos in check," said quarterback Houston Lillard. "I think that it is a good thing that he is doing it like this because it helps me get better and want to learn more. I get to spend more time with the offense and get to know the team better."

The Fever take on Wenatchee Valley Thursday in a scrimmage at the Toyota Center.
