Longtime Washington Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld was dismissed on Tuesday in the wake of the franchise’s subpar season, team chairman Ted Leonsis said.
Grunfeld, 63, was concluding his 16th season with the franchise and the team holds a disappointing 32-46 record with four games remaining. He was hired prior to the 2003-04 season.

He and his family have been great leaders in our community and have worked tirelessly to make us a top NBA franchise.”
