Big bang! Steve Nash becomes coach and signs for the Nets

Steve Nash will lead the Nets in their fight for the championship. Surprising decision influenced by Durant and Irving, who preferred a close figure.


Steve Nash is the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets. One of those who left with fewer options, a priori, to fill the position of Jacque Vaughn, who in turn was the interim in command after the dismissal of Kenny Atkinson, is the chosen one. The franchise has announced it in an official statement in which it welcomes the Canadian's family, who will be the main coach of the Nets for the next few seasons.

Nash will thus inaugurate his career on the bench. Having been a hugely successful player in the NBA despite not winning a championship, as he was a two-time MVP of the Season, this will be his first experience as a bench in the North American league. Retired in 2015, he had worked with the Warriors as a player development coach, coinciding with a Kevin Durant whom he will now see again in Brooklyn.

Nash had turned into the world of soccer, where he is a shareholder and liaison with the owner (Robert Sarver, who also owns Phoenix Suns) at Real Mallorca.

The closeness with the players has been an asset. His past as a star on the court is recent, like a Vaughn who will remain as an assistant, and that was one of the priorities of Duarnt and Irving, those who must lead the Nets, eliminated in the first round of the 2020 Playoffs in his absence due to injuries, to fight for the championship. Four years will have a margin.
