Thunder fire Carlesimo
The losses kept piling up for P.J. Carlesimo, and it didn't matter which city his team called home.

With the relocated Oklahoma City Thunder off to an NBA-worst 1-12 start, Carlesimo was fired as coach Saturday and replaced on an interim basis by assistant Scott Brooks.

The firing -- the first of an NBA coach this season -- followed a 105-80 defeat to the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night for the Thunder's 10th straight loss.

Brooks, a former Timberwolf, was to make his debut Saturday night in a rematch with the Hornets in New Orleans, and general manager Sam Presti said he would remain through the end of the season.

The Thunder also let go assistant Paul Westhead, who guided the Phoenix Mercury to the 2007 WNBA title and won an NBA title in 1980 with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Brooks, an 11-year NBA veteran, bounced around with seven teams, including the Timberwolves from 1990-92.

Briefly: Milwaukee Bucks leading scorer Michael Redd could be out another week as he continues a slow recovery from a right ankle injury.
