I think it is almost a foregone conclusion. Flip Saunders will be fired. It's just a matter of when.
The next 4 games are BRUTAL- Back to back Boston Games then Orlando and then New York. Yikes!
Maybe he will make it to the end of the year then it's siyanora. My guess is that he will released sooner than later.
Who takes his place? It doesn't matter. As long as he is replaced. Some say Sam Cassell. Problem with that is that Sam is a disciple of Flips. Flip hired him. There is no loyalty to Assistant Coaches from Upper Management.
Just clean it up, fresh and new.
