Kenny Atkinson Is Out as Nets Head Coach

Kenny Atkinson is no longer the head coach of the Nets, the team unexpectedly announced on Saturday.

“After discussions with Kenny about the progress of the season, we mutually agreed that a coaching change would be in the best interest of the team,” General Manager Sean Marks said in a statement. “This was an extremely difficult decision, however the organization believes it is one that is necessary at this time. Kenny was instrumental in developing our players and building the identity and culture we have become known for over these past four seasons.”

This is a developing story.
