Report: Wizards “99 percent” likely to fire Randy Wittman on Thursday
Once the regular season ends, the offseason starts 14 teams that don’t make the playoffs, and with that may come coaching changes. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst in an appearance on The Tony Kornheiser Show, the Wizards are all but set to part ways with Randy Wittman on Thursday. Windhorst’s comments start at the 10-minute mark of this segment, and here’s a transcript:
It’s hard not to look at this season as a complete waste for the Wizards, coming off two straight second-round appearances. Coming into the year, they were viewed around the league as having a legitimate shot to lure Kevin Durant away from Oklahoma City due to his roots in the area and talented young core of John Wall and Bradley Beal. But after missing the playoffs, it’s hard to see them as a real option for Durant, and it’s hard to see Wittman as their best option to coach going forward.
