Golden State has fired coach Mark Jackson, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
While some of the Warriors faithful may be disappointed in the decision to let Jackson go, it shouldn't have come as much of a surprise given some of the ups and downs he's had with the team this season. The search for a new coach will begin immediately, though no rumors have tied anyone to the potential job as of yet.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
