Report: Wizards won’t fire Saunders
Despite an 0-8 start to the season, Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders is in no danger of losing his job.
The Wizards are the only winless team in the league following a 93-72 home loss to Minnesota on Sunday, leading to speculation about Saunders’ future.
“No I don’t fear that,” Saunders said. “I think I know the process that we’re going through, and I know it’s a painful process.”
Two sources told Washington Post that the team has no intention of dumping Saunders, who is in the third year of a four-year, $18 million contract.
The Wizards are 49-123 in two-plus seasons under Saunders. That includes losing their first 25 road games last season.
