- BROOKLYN NETS FIRE HEAD COACH LIONEL HOLLINS & GM BILLY KING
Nets head coach Lionel Hollins is a good coach, but after Nets GM Billy King gave away future draft picks for older and past their prime players Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, the Nets future losing ways was only a matter of time, as Lionel Hollins did not have the players to compete with most teams in the NBA. With no NBA first round picks available for the near future, the Nets best method of trying to compete would be to look at the EJBB TOP 50 LIST of veteran Euros not drafted by NBA teams, to try and find another Boban Marjanovic or Timofey Mozgov or other role player type of guys that could help until they get first round picks back.
The Nets made the coaching change, with Tony Brown taking over for the rest of the season, as the Nets will host the San Antonio Spurs on Monday January 11th and EJBB says that Spurs assistant coach Ettore Messina WILL BE the next Nets head coach, as Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov knows him well from his days with CSKA Moscow.
EJBB was the first to write in January 2013 that Ettore Messina would get a hard look by the Nets, but Prokhorov went with what his NBA GM Billy King wanted at the time, but with Billy King out as GM, EJBB is sure that Messina will get the Nets coaching job. Others in 2013 wrote about Messina maybe being hired by the Nets, but those articles came in June, after the January EJBB piece.
