The Nets are losing assistant coaches rapidly and this isn’t boding well going into an uncertain offseason. Peter Vecsey of the New York Post reports that Sam Mitchell will be leaving Avery Johnson’s staff.
It’s possible Mitchell left in order to pursue one of the vacant coaching spots still available in the NBA. After all, Mitchell was named the 2006-07 NBA Coach of the Year. In any case, Avery Johnson has lost his best assistants over the course of this offseason and it will be a tough task ahead for him to replace them.
