The Washington Wizards reportedly are the latest team to part ways with their coach.

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Wizards have decided to move on from coach Scott Brooks after the two sides were unable to come to an agreement on a contract extension.

Brooks joined the franchise in 2016 and posted a record of 183-207 over five seasons. The team reached the postseason three times, most recently this season when the team reached the playoffs via the Play-In Tournament and were eliminated by the Philadelphia 76ers in five games during the first round.

Prior to joining the Wizards, Brooks coached the Oklahoma City Thunder for seven seasons from 2008-15 and reached the NBA Finals in 2012.

With Brooks reportedly out, the Wizards will be the sixth team in the NBA with a head coaching vacancy, joining the New Orleans Pelicans, Boston Celtics, Portland Trail Blazers, Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic.
