The Brooklyn Nets are looking for the head coaching job next season after they fired Kenny Atkinson. Jacque Vaughn is the current interim coach for the team, a former Spur. Recently in March, Stephen A Smith mentioned that Popovich could be a great coach for the Brooklyn Nets as they got a healthy Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving with their young squad. Also, Air Alamo has an article that the Nets owner wants to make a “Godfather” offer that Pop can’t refuse but general manager Sean Marks stated Pop not going to New York City.
“Pop has a job. So I will say that. And, obviously, we all know he’s an amazing, amazing coach — and to be quite frank, an even better leader. So I’ll let Pop continue to coach for the Spurs. He owes it to them and they owe it to him. I’m sure he’s quite happy there.” said Marks.
Obviously, Sean Marks, Tiago Splitter, and Jacque Vaughn are a big part of San Antonio in the past so there’s a familiarity. The Nets are one of the top contenders next season which a little appealing for Pop if wants to win another title quickly.
But Popovich is meant to be a Spurs for life.
