Brooklyn Nets Hire Hall-of-Fame Point Guard Steve Nash as Head Coach7

September 3, 2020

In what The New York Times calls "a stunning move," the Brooklyn Nets hired Hall-of-Fame point guard Steve Nash as their new head coach on Thursday, in spite of the fact that he has no coaching experience. The 46-year-old Nash will replace interim heads coach Jacque Vaughn, who will remain with the team as one of Nash's assistants. According to The Times, Nets general manager Sean Marks believes that "Nash is a coaching natural who will benefit greatly from his relationship with the star forward Kevin Durant," who sat out the entire season with an injury after signing with Brooklyn in free agency. Picture.
