Default Former Pistons coach Flip Saunders fired by Wizards

Detroit Free Press:

Former Pistons coach Flip Saunders was the second coaching casualty of the season, fired Tuesday by the Washington Wizards after a 2-15 start.

Paul Westphal was the first to get canned, relieved by the Sacramento Kings after a 2-5 start and a feud with DeMarcus Cousins.

As one of six first-year coaches, Lawrence Frank of the Pistons doesn't have to worry about such a fate for now, despite the team's 4-15 start. But he knows coaches are ultimately judged on wins and losses, and if there isn't enough winning, you know what's going to happen.

"All of us in coaching understand it's a results-oriented business," Frank said at the Wednesday morning shoot-around before the Pistons lost to the Heat, 101-98, at the Palace. "I don't take the fatalistic approach that you're hired to be fired, but we all know that if you don't get the job done you get let go. It's no different than the real world."

I never liked what Saunders did as a coach. He deserved to be canned. I don't see Frank getting fired. This lineup just isn't a good one. Once we get some talent then we'll need to get a better coach.
