Minneapolis:

The Minnesota Timberwolves have fired coach Kurt Rambis after two seasons on the job.

Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn announced the decision Tuesday. Kahn says it was a difficult decision to make, but the right one for the franchise.

Rambis was 32-132 in Minnesota, including an NBA-worst 17-65 last season.

The firing ends a drawn out process that started at the end of the season in April with Kahn saying he would take his time to make a decision. Three months later, Kahn finally made the move.

Rambis had two years left on the contract he signed in 2009.
