Nets Reportedly Not Sold On Hiring Ty Lue
During the middle of the NBA season, the Brooklyn Nets made the surprising decision to fire head coach Kenny Atkinson. The move seemed to be motivated by Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving who want a head coach with championship pedigree leading the team. For now, it remains to be seen who will be hired to become the next coach although there are certainly some big names in the running, at least for right now. In fact, some believe the Nets could be going after Gregg Popovich.
One of the other names floating around is Ty Lue who is currently an assistant with the Los Angeles Clippers. He helped bring a championship to Cleveland in 2016 and he is also a candidate for jobs in Philadelphia and New Orleans. However, according to Ian Begley of SNY, the Nets simply aren’t sold on Lue’s services.
