While 2,000 people are said to be working in the Brooklyn Nets’ Barclays Center, Avery Johnson will no longer be one of those people. After winning Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for the months of October and November , the team seemed to lose its steam and won only three of their last 13 games despite having a strong 11-4 start.
“We weren’t playing well,” Nets GM Billy King said of the decision to fire Johnson. “That’s the bottom line. We just weren’t playing good basketball and we seemed to be regressing. We’re in the business of accountability. Players do have to play, but when they’re not, others will be held accountable, too. That’s just the way it is, unfortunately.”
Believe it or not, Johnson has a great track record with the Dallas Mavericks prior to joining the Nets.
