After a 2-5 started to the 2022-23 season, the Brooklyn Nets have elected to fire head coach Nash according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Per Woj, “Decision was mutual with Nets and Nash, per sources.”

The Brooklyn Nets hired Nash was hired on September 3, 2020.

“He wanted something higher, bigger [when he left OKC for the Warriors]. He wanted to experience something different where he would be pushed in new ways, and it’s kind of the same thing that’s happening now,” Nash said. “… I think him constantly seeking a new challenge and new opportunity and new experience, there’s a lot of layers to him.”

“I think he loves to explore.” 

Nash’s former teammate and player Goran Dragić thanked him for helping him throughout his career earlier this week.

“It was an amazing experience,” Dragić said after Chicago Bulls practice on Monday. “At the same time, it was terrifying the first couple days.”

“Steve helped me so much in my career,” Dragić said. “Just how to be a professional, how to eat healthy, work ethic and of course pick-and-roll. That was his main thing. I was happy that I had that opportunity to learn from him.

“But if I’m honest, it was a lot of pressure too. When you’re a backup point guard to one of the greats and he’s leading the team, you come in and that level has to be the same. That’s hard to achieve, especially at a young age. That was something especially at the beginning that I struggled with. But when I figured out that I’m not Steve Nash and I just need to be me, then it became much easier.”
