It’s as though the Thunder were reading my column yesterday and remembered, “oh yeah, we should probably start making moves”. (I’m sure Sam Presti reads TheCoLA)
Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Thunder have fired head coach Scott Brooks and will begin searching for the next coach immediately. According to Wojo, Sam Presti went out to meet Brooks in California to deliver the news in person, and Brooks will be an ideal candidate for the jobs in Denver and Orlando (or any other crap team/situation).
Brooks had one year remaining on his deal at $4.5 million, which the Thunder will now have to payout.
