Steve Nash to Become the Next Brooklyn Nets Head Coach

In surprising fashion, the Brooklyn Nets have hired their new head coach and it is someone who no one considered for the job. The Nets are going to make NBA Hall of Famer Steve Nash their next head coach according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

This new surprised everybody around the league. There had been rumors of Ty Lue and even Gregg Popovich landing in Brooklyn, but not Nash. For weeks Nets owner Joe Tsai and general manager Sean Marks have been ‘aggressively’ recruiting him to make the leap to head coach.

Interm head coach Jacque Vaughn will be staying on the staff as the Nets are now making him the highest compensated assistant coach in the league according to Wojnarowski of ESPN. Vaughn took over for Kenny Atkinson after Atkinson was fired mid-season. Vaughn coached a depleted Nets roster to a 5-3 record in the bubble.

Steve Nash Kevin Durant
The relationship between Steve Nash and Kevin Durant was definitely a catalyst for him getting the Brooklyn Nets job.

Nash and Nets star Kevin Durant had an extremely close relationship during Durant’s time in Golden State which included offseason workouts according to ESPN Senior Writer Zach Lowe. Nash had been a consultant for the Golden State Warriors since 2015. He won the only Championships of his basketball career as a consultant for the Warriors in 2017 and 2018.

The new Brooklyn Nets head coach is more famously known for his time in the league as one of the league’s elite point guards. He is a two-time MVP, eight-time All-Star, seven-time All-NBA, five-time assist leader and a Basketball Hall of Famer.
