Washington Wizards have fired President Ernie Grunfeld, the team said.
Washington is the last in the South East Division with 32-46 records and is eliminated from the playoffs race. our stated goals are to qualify for the playoffs this season and, despite playing with several key players, we have a culture of accountability and responsibility for achieving positive results, "said team owner Ted Leonessis in a press release.
"I want to thank Ernie for his service to the Washington Wizards, and he and his family have been great leaders in our community and have worked tirelessly to make us the best NBA franchises."
The eighteen-year-old Lebron James has denied a $ 10 million shoe signing bonus and has begun the future for a billion dollars.

Point John Wall and Dwight Howard's center missed most of the season and Markie Maurice's attacker was also injured before trading.
Grunfeld held his job for 16 seasons, during which Wizards made a record 568-724 and made eight trips to the playoffs.
Washington never went through the second round of the playoffs and never won at least 50 matches in one season, despite having All-Stars like Wall, Bradley Beal, Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler and Ataun Jameson.
The Wall is expected to be abandoned for many if not the next season. Bail is the only other elite player to have a contract for the next season. Otherwise, the cabinet is pretty nude, and because of the big contracts Grunfeld gave to Wall and Beal – not to mention the spare center Ian Mahinmi, who rarely plays – there is not much money to provide free agents from the top level.
The team also has no choice in the second round of this year's NBA, because Grunfeld has exchanged it.
Grunfeld previously served as General Manager of New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks.
He played nine seasons in the NBA with three teams.
