Steve Nash fired - Brooklyn Nets confirm departure of head coach
The Brooklyn Nets have sacked head coach Steve Nash with the team 2-5 to start the 2022-23 NBA season.
The off-season was filled with debate over Nash's future, with star player Kevin Durant asking for a trade.
News of Nash's exit was initially broken by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski before The Athletic correspondent Shams Charania also confirmed the news.
Jacque Vaughn is the acting head coach tonight but expect the Nets to inquire with suspended Celtics coach Ime Udoka, Quin Snyder, among others. Boston will let Udoka leave for another job.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 1, 2022
