Well, that escalated quickly.
Hours after the Wizards’ final game of the season, he was informed he was released, according to Marc Stein of ESPN and Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.
Randy Wittman has been fired by the Washington Wizards, according to NBA coaching sources— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) April 14, 2016
As for who is next, Wojnarowski has said former Thunder coach Scott Brooks is at the top of their list.
Brooks isn’t the only candidate on the list, which will include interest in former Suns coach Jeff Hornacek and Philadelphia 76ers assistant Mike D’Antoni, league sources said.
Brooks would be a good fit, and the Wizards are smart to be aggressive because he will be in demand. The Lakers could lead a charge for Brooks, and Houston likely will want an interview with him as well.
