Week In Review 1/10/16-1/16/16

The Nets were the major newsmakers of the past week, firing coach Lionel Hollins and removing Billy King from his GM job with the intention of reassigning him to another position within the organization. Brooklyn named assistant Tony Brown interim head coach, and assistant GM Frank Zanin will run the front office.

“After careful consideration, I’ve concluded that it’s time for a fresh start and a new vision for the direction of the team,” Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said in the team’s statement. “By making this decision now, it enables our organization to use the rest of the season to diligently evaluate candidates with proven track records. It’s clear from our current state of affairs that we need new leadership. With the right basketball management and coach in place, we are going to create a winning culture and identity and give Brooklyn a team that it can be proud of and enjoy watching. We have learned a great deal during the past six years and our experiences will guide us for the future. Following the consolidation of team ownership last month, I can assure you that I’m more determined and committed than ever to build a winner.”

The team hired Hollins in the summer of 2014 shortly after the departure of Jason Kidd for the Bucks. Hollins went 48-71 with Brooklyn during the regular season over a season and a half, and the Nets fell in six games to the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs last year.
