According to Yahoo Sports, the Wizards have fired coach Flip Saunders. The Wizards are off to a 2-15 start, the worst in the NBA, and there have rumors about Saunders job security virtually all season long.
The report comes on the heels of the Wizards latest loss a 20-point shellacking in Philadelphia that was even more lopsided than the score suggests. For the majority of the game, the 76ers led by closer to 30 points.
The team returned home from Philadelphia Monday night, and Saunders had given the team the day off from practice on Tuesday.
We are awaiting an official statement from the Wizards.
