Flip Saunders has been let go by the Washington Wizards. 

NBC Sports reports that Saunders has been fired after the Wizards began the 2011-12 season 2-15. As the site details, the Wizards players started without discipline, consistent effort or signs of improvement.

Saunders is expected to be replaced in the interim by current Wizards assistant Randy Wittman.
