The CEO of the San Antonio Spurs RC Buford addressed the rumors regarding the interest of the Brooklyn Nets to hire Gregg Popovich.

Buford said the team is expecting the legendary coach to return for the 2020-21 season.

“I don’t know if he’s told Brian any differently. Pop’s shown nothing other than how we’re going to build our team for next year. Pop’s vision will be in play long after his presence.

That doesn’t mean it’ll be him in there making those decisions, but we’ve all learned together, and you’re not going to step away from a values-based, team-building aspect that focuses on culture and coming to work every day and working on it,” Buford said, via Jabari Young of CNBC.

Popovich is under contract with San Antonio for another two years.
