The Nets made a stunning decision on Thursday morning with the hiring of Steve Nash as their next head coach.
Nash signed a four-year contract with the team, ESPN.com reported.
The Hall of Fame point guard, who headlined the Suns’ fast-paced attack in the 2000s, was working as a player development coach with the Warriors.
The Nets fired Kenny Atkinson in March with Jacque Vaughn taking over as interim coach in the NBA bubble. Nash, 46, is now charged with leading the Nets’ super team of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, who will debut as a tandem next season after signing as free agents in July 2019.
Durant missed the entire season rehabbing from a ruptured Achilles tendon.
