The Nets mercifully reassigned general manager Billy King to a lesser role when the team was 10-27. King wasn’t around long enough to make any mistakes this season, but he certainly had nothing to brag about considering he assembled the entire terrible roster.
It was only a matter of time before Lionel Hollins was fired. Some thought it would happen at the end of the season, but the Nets decided to pull the trigger earlier and clean house along with King. Hollins continued to ignore basic trends and the analytics that nearly every other team in the league was using; and in the end his ignorance cost him.
