Brooklyn Nets Part Ways with Head Coach Kenny Atkinson

Though it’s been a transition year for the Brooklyn Nets, the organization was not expecting the team to be struggling to get into the playoffs. But with injuries to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the team has underperformed. As a result, the franchise has mutually parted ways with coach Kenny Atkinson.

From the reports, it feels like the writing was on the wall and several players wanted him out.

Whether it was inevitable or not, the team is looking towards next year and the return of their prized free agents. The Nets will be looking to hire someone with championship pedigree to lead the squad into bonafied NBA contenders.

Assistant coach Jacque Vaughn will serve in the interim.
