After a 14-14 start, and 3-10 in the last 13 last games, the Brooklyn Nets have fired coach Avery Johnson. This announcement was made today by general manager Billy King. In sort of a shock, the Nets organization was grateful for his efforts, but wanted to move in a new direction. In two seasons as the Nets coach, Johnson’s record was 60-116. No interim coach has been named yet.
Update: According ESPN, P.J. Carlesimo has been named interim coach… adding more head scratching and humor to this story.
