ESPN’S Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Scott Brooks is gone as Wizards coach after they failed to come to an agreement on a new deal.
Brooks had just led the Wizards to the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. His contract expired after Washington’s first-round loss to the Sixers and Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said earlier this month that the team needed to evaluate Brooks.
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.
