Leonsis to show Grunfeld the door?

7

Whenever a team is sold the new owner is likely to replace the current basketball staff with a new group. With that in mind, the Wizards, who have had another terrible season, could have a new president and head coach next season. The team saved a lot of money in future season's by trading Gilbert Arenas and agreeing to a buyout with Mike Bibby and that could lead Ted Leonsis to replace Ernie Grunfeld and Flip Saunders after this season. "Everyone likes to hire their own people and Leonsis is no different," a league source told Peter Vecsey of the New York Post. "And it's not as if the team's record over the last few years or all the bozos Grunfeld brought in favor him staying." According to Vecsey, Leonsis thought about replacing Grunfeld when he became majority owner of the Wizards, but at the time couldn't find a suitable replacement. Grunfeld is under contract though next season, while Saunders has two more years remaining on his deal. -- Nick Borges
