Kenny Atkinson Rumors

Ian Begley: Will Weaver is nearing an agreement with the G League’s Long Island Nets to serve as the club’s next head coach, league sources told ESPN. Weaver is a member of Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson’s staff and had previously worked under Brett Brown with the Philadelphia 76ers.
“I have not broken anything. What influenced his decision … for me, it remains a mystery,” Mozgov told Izvestia, according to a machine translation. “I don’t know any reason why I first lost my place in the starting five and then not playing even a minute. But it’s the head coach’s decision and he is responsible for result. I tried to speak to Atkinson but he was not able to give me answer. Anyway I m confident. Just want to play for Brooklyn or any other NBA team. I tried to talk to him, but I did not succeed in drawing out something intelligible.”
Mozgov was asked about the Nets and he told the interviewer things were not as he had hoped. Mozgov said it was a terrible season and he wants to play. When he talks to Kenny Atkinson, he said the coach doesn’t give him many details on what his situation is, offering only, “Keep it up, you’re doing fine.” So he just stays ready because it’s his job, but it’s been extremely hard.
That 2014-15 season was actually Kenny Atkinson’s third year as an assistant in Atlanta, having been hired by Larry Drew a year before Budenholzer took over. But with Atkinson having just completed his second year as the head coach in Brooklyn – the second full season for a fully revamped basketball operations staff under GM Sean Marks – the year two effect is clearly in evidence. “When I look back and I look at the job Kenny has done, I say look at our players that have improved over the course of the last two years,” said Marks. “If you want to call some of them diamonds in the rough or so forth, but I don’t think we can argue with what Kenny and the staff have done in terms of developing talent.”
