Washington Wizards fire coach Scott Brooks after 5 seasons

WASHINGTON (AP) Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal and the Wizards will have another coach next season after general manager Tommy Sheppard decided the organization is better off moving on from coach Scott Brooks.

Washington made the playoffs three times under Brooks but has just one series victory to show for his five-year tenure. That postseason success came in his first season in 2016-17 with the Wizards.

"I wouldn't say it didn't work out - I just think it's time to move on," Sheppard said in a video news conference Wednesday. "It's about the future and where we can go and kind of looking at where the areas are that we struggled in the past with and what we're prepared to do to get better in those areas."
