According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark wants to offer John Calipari a job as head coach and president.
While Calipari did coach at the Nets (New Jersey) from 1996-1999 and is close friends with Yormark, would he really leave Kentucky for the NBA? Have you seen next year’s recruiting class? Probably not, especially not for the Nets.
We all knew when the Nets fired head coach Lionel Hollins earlier, it was only a matter of time before these reports surfaced. But as Kory said earlier, the Nets are terrible, and they’ve traded their 2016 and 2018 first round picks to Boston. Not really ideal team rebuilding material.
So, BBN, you can probably sleep well tonight.
