Report: Washington Wizards Fire Head Coach Flip Saunders
If you’ve been tuned into the season this year, it would come to no surprise and no explanation needed as to why the head coach of the Washington Wizards has been fired. Besides there also being issues between the front office and players, the Wizards have managed to win only 2 out of their first 18 games of the season.
Yahoo Sports reports that the Washington Wizards have fired Flip Saunders after a 2-15 start to the season. Saunders was recently reportedly not on the hot seat from management, but disappointing losses to the struggling Boston Celtics in a winnable game at home, followed by a thrashing by the Philadelphia 76ers Monday night may have changed ownership’s mind.
The Wizards have struggled in nearly every phase of the game this season, incoherent offense, a lost defense, poor chemistry and regression from the franchise cornerstone in John Wall. If the report is accurate, it was probably time to see if someone else can try and right a ship that has gone so terribly off-course.
I don’t see the purpose of firing a coach mid-season but *shrugs. Guess they couldn’t get any worse at this point.
