Head coach Kenny Atkinson and the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to part ways according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
In four seasons with the team, Atkinson posted a record of 118-190. He is most known for rebuilding the Nets from a 20-win team in his first year to making the playoffs in his third season with the team.
The Nets were considered contenders in the Eastern Conference after acquiring Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan in the offseason. Durant has been unable to play this season with an Achilles injury. Irving has only been able to play 20 games this season and has been shut down for the season with a shoulder injury. Brooklyn is currently the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference.
Jacque Vaugh will be the interim coach. Vaughn has head coaching experience with the Orlando Magic from 2012-2015 and had a record of 58-158.
