  • The Brooklyn Nets made a huge offseason splash by signing Steve Nash as their new head coach. This was a step in the right direction for the franchise, especially from Kevin Durant’s perspective. Durant discussed reuniting with his former player development coach in Golden State (via FanSided writer Mike Luciano).
