PJ Carlesimo Fired after Dismal Start by OKC Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder have fired coach P.J. Carlesimo, just 13 games into the franchise’s first season away from Seattle, according to a published report.
Yahoo! Sports cites undisclosed sources with the information, saying Thunder GM Sam Presti informed Carlesimo of his decision before the team boarded a flight to New Orleans. On Friday night, as part of a home-and-home with the Hornets, the Thunder (1-12) fell 105-80 in front of their home fans.
