The GM of the Brooklyn Nets, Sean Marks, addressed the rumors regarding the team’s intention to hire Gregg Popovich.

Marks made it clear the Nets have no intention to convince the legendary head coach to leave the San Antonio Spurs and join Brooklyn.

“Pop has a job; so I’ll 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,” Marks said on WFAN, via Brian Lewis of the New York Post.

Aside from Popovich, high-profile coaches, like Tyronn Lue and Jason Kidd, have been linked with a move to the Nets.
