The Brooklyn Nets are adding experienced assistant coach Steve Hetzel to Jordi Fernandez’s new coaching staff in Brooklyn, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Hetzel recently served as an assistant coach with the Portland Trail Blazers for three seasons under Chauncey Billups. Before his time in Portland, he worked alongside Steve Clifford in both Charlotte (2014-18) and Orlando (2018-21).

Notably, Hetzel previously held the head coaching position for the Canton Charge in the G League during the 2013/14 season.

Fernandez was an assistant on his staff during that time, eventually assuming the role of head coach for the Charge in the subsequent two seasons.
