MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Grizzlies fired coach Mike Fratello on Thursday after a league-worst 6-24 start, even though his team had been missing its best player for most of the season.

Fratello was the Grizzlies’ winningest coach with a 95-83 record and had guided them to consecutive playoff appearances. Tony Barone Sr., the Grizzlies’ director of player personnel, was selected to be the interim coach.
