Jacque Vaughn is considered the favorite to take over the Brooklyn Nets, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Vaughn replaced Kenny Atkinson and coached the Nets for two games prior to the NBA suspension.

Even though the Nets are willing to conduct a coaching search, Wojnarowski believes Vaughn is the favorite to become the permanent head coach of Brooklyn.

“He’s the head coach. They didn’t make him interim coach. I think the Nets are considering the possibility of a search, but I would still give Jacque Vaughn — I would take Jacque Vaughn against the field right now,” Wojnarowski said on his podcast, via Real GM.
