Del Negro: Clippers Decision ‘Hard to take’
Almost three weeks after the Clippers were knocked out of the Western Conference playoffs, the team decided to part ways with Coach Vinny Del Negro on Tuesday.
Del Negro told The Times that being let go was “hard to take.” He added: “You try not to ever be surprised, but it is a business.”
“I want to thank the fans, the organization and Mr. and Mrs. Sterling for giving me this opportunity,” Del Negro said in a phone interview from his home in Phoenix. ” I want to thank the players and my entire staff for their effort and support.”
