The Brooklyn Nets have an important decision to make. After parting with Kenny Atkinson, Brooklyn needs someone who attracts the attention and respect of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, knows how to win in today’s NBA and can handle the pressure of the coach in New York.

According to Forbes, Mike D’Antoni is the ideal man for this job.

The problem is that he is currently the Houston Rockets coach, but it may not last long. D’Antoni is in the last year of a four-year contract and, for some reason, an extension was not granted last summer by the majority shareholder of the Rockets Tilman Fertitta, despite the best regular season and the percentage of post-season wins in history of the franchise in its first three seasons at the helm.
