Flip Saunders Fires Five Scouts
They say the new guy always wants to bring in his own guys…
Well, Flip Saunders started to do that today.
He fired five scouts — international scouting director/player personnel Pete Philo, regional scouts J.T. Prada, Curtis Crawford and Steve Gordon as well as special-assignment scout Will Conroy — today in his first full week on the job as president of basketball operations.
All four either had contracts expiring this summer and were working without contracts.
