Wizards Fire Flip Saunders

Well that took long enough. Finally after the Wizards set the league on fire with the worst 2-15 record. GM Ernie Grunfeld fired coach Flip Saunders who will be replaced by assistant coach Randy Wittman on an interim basis. Washington has lost seven of its last eight games after an 0-8 start.

“I felt like at this time, our players were not responding, and I think we needed a different voice,” Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said. “This doesn’t change our overall plan, which always has been very transparent for us, which is to build through the draft, get salary-cap space going forward and develop our young players.”

Saunders was in his third season with the Wizards, going 51-130. Damn!
