BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The NBA Development League team in Bismarck is replacing its head coach.

The ouster of Rory White this week came a day after officials announced the Dakota Wizards had been bought by the Golden State Warriors. The general manager of the NBA team, Larry Riley, tells The Bismarck Tribune that the team wants to bring in a Wizards coach who will mesh well with the Warriors' new head coach, Mark Jackson.

Riley says there were "no negative issues" with White.

White coached the Wizards for two seasons, compiling a 48-52 record. He says he was told the Warriors wanted to "start everything fresh."

Riley says there is no timeline for hiring a new coach.
