MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have fired coach Kurt Rambis after two seasons on the job.

A person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Rambis has been fired. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced by the team.

Rambis was 32-132 in Minnesota, including an NBA-worst 17-65 last season.

The firing ends a drawn out process that started at the end of the season in April with team president David Kahn saying he would take his time to make a decision. Three months later, Kahn finally made the move.

Rambis has two years left on the contract he signed in 2009.

The firing was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.
