Scott Brooks is out as the Washington Wizards coach after the two sides failed to come to an agreement on a new deal, the team announced.
In five seasons, Brooks was 183-207 with three playoff appearances, including making the Eastern Conference semifinals in 2016-17. The Wizards went 34-38 this season.
The Wizards will enter a coaching search while also trying to settle the future of Bradley Beal, who is entering the final year of his contract next season.
“We have been committed to taking the proper steps over the last two seasons to develop our young players, bring in pieces to complement Bradley Beal and build a winning environment that will ultimately lead to sustained on-court success,” said GM Tommy Sheppard. “Our organization will always be grateful to Scott for his dedication and work both on the court and in the community over the past five years and I personally admire and respect how he helped keep our team together during the unprecedented events of the last 15 months.”
