Brooklyn Nets Fire Avery Johnson

Johnson was named the NBA’s Coach of the Month for November, after leading the Nets to an 11-4 start, their best in franchise history. The team has gone 3-10 since in December, most recently losing 108-93 to the Milwaukee Bucks.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, P.J. Carlesimo will be named the team’s interim coach. Billy King will officially address the situation at 4 P.M. today.

And here we go.


  1. I was not a fan of his lineups. When he played Humphries at Center with Stackhouse at PF, I kind of lost it. Granted that was only one time and then only for about five minutes. But still. His solution to problems was always go small and go old. He wouldn’t play the big guys, even though they are the guys actually producing for the Nets this year.
