Report: Wizards coach Scott Brooks on hot seat
The Wizards are trying to win now. But they’re just 3-8. Washington coach Scott Brooks is in the final year of his contract.
Do the math.
But it’s also tough to build an affirmative case for keeping Brooks, either. Washington’s defense has remained dismal on his watch. The Wizards haven’t found quality chemistry this season.
Fairly or not, coaches often take the fall in situations like this. Bradley Beal’s status only increases pressure on Washington – and, therefore, Brooks.
For now, the Wizards’ coronavirus outbreak takes priority. But as has been shown across all sports, this pandemic isn’t stopping the coaching carousel.
