The Nets have a new head coach in Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash.
The signing was announced on Thursday, as Nash inks a four-year deal to lead Brooklyn as their 23rd head coach in franchise history.
"After meeting with a number of highly accomplished coaching candidates from diverse backgrounds, we knew we had a difficult decision to make,” said GM Sean Marks in a press release. “In Steve we see a leader, communicator and mentor who will garner the respect of our players. I have had the privilege to know Steve for many years. One of the great on-court leaders in our game, I have witnessed firsthand his basketball acumen and selfless approach to prioritize team success. His instincts for the game, combined with an inherent ability to communicate with and unite players towards a common goal, will prepare us to compete at the highest levels of the league."
