Ronald Nored Rumors
The Brad Stevens coaching tree is beginning to grow branches, as 26-year-old Ronald Nored, a Celtics assistant for two seasons before being an assistant at Northern Kentucky, was named coach of the Long Island Nets, Brooklyn’s new NBADL affiliate. This will be his first head coaching job at any level. Nored played four years for Stevens at Butler and was on both of the teams that reached the NCAA final.
The Brooklyn Nets have named Ronald Nored as head coach of the team’s new NBA Development League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. “We are excited to welcome Ronald as head coach of the Long Island Nets,” said Brooklyn Nets General Manager Sean Marks. “Ronald is a bright young mind in our game whose experience under Brad Stevens as both a player and a coach, as well as his ability to connect with today’s players, have prepared him for this role. His commitment to player development, along with his enthusiasm and passion for the game, are aligned with the vision we have for both the Brooklyn and Long Island Nets.”
