Mitch Lawrence of the Daily News talks to an old friend of the Nets, Byron Scott, who thinks Avery Johnson is a perfect fit for the head coaching position:
“He’s a good teacher and obviously, he’s an old-school type coach,” Scott said. “He’s a disciplinarian. And, he had Devin Harris, before in Dallas, and I think Devin has a lot of respect for him. And Avery definitely loves Devin, from the talks I’ve had with him.”
Additionally, Scott thinks Phil Jackson will either retire or stay with the Lakers at the end of this season.
