  • Gregg Popovich has +1400 odds at being on the sideline in Brooklyn.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - The search for the next head coach of the Brooklyn Nets is on and in full swing.

The Nets have not had any consistency at the head coach position as they have had five different coaches since the 2013-14 season.

Online sportsbooks currently have odds posted for who will become the sixth head coach in seven years for the Nets.

Who Will Be The Head Coach Of The Brooklyn Nets For Game 1 Of The 2020/21 season?

  • Jacque Vaughn -175
  • Tyronn Lue +225
  • Jason Kidd +450
  • Mark Jackson +1000
  • Jeff Van Gundy +1200
  • Gregg Popovich +1400
  • Kenny “The Jet” Smith +2000

Gregg Popovich

Gregg Popovich might come as a big surprise here as he is already an established championship-caliber coach for the San Antonio Spurs. Popovich currently has the second furthest odds at +1400 but recent rumors could lean bettors to believe something is there.

The Nets were linked to Popovich after a reported rumor that they were prepared to offer him a ‘Godfather’ offer in which he could not deny.

If this rumor is, in fact, true, it would reunite the legendary coach with both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who played under him for team USA.

One thing is for sure, if Popovich were to coach Brooklyn, the rest of the league would need to watch out as they would be poised for a title run immediately.

Jacque Vaughn

Jacque Vaugh is currently the interim head coach of the Brooklyn Nets after the team parted ways with Kenny Atkinson in the middle of the season.

Vaughn is the favorite to stick as the head coach with -175 NBA odds and it is a little concerning.

Vaughn stepped in for the final two games before the NBA’s hiatus and went 2-0. Before that, from 2012-2015 he was the head coach of the Orlando Magic where he led them to the ground with a 58-158 record.

Vaughn will be the coach for the Nets heading into the NBA bubble in Orlando and will be facing a tough road ahead as he will be without Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant or Deandre Jordan.

Aside from that, his job could depend on how well he does in the league's restart. Bettors should not hold their breath on Vaughn despite him being the favorite as his coaching record is not where it needs to be.

Jason Kidd

If there is anyone candidate on the odds board that should be heavily considered, it should be Jason Kidd.

Kidd was not only the coach of the Nets back in 2013-14 where he led them to a 44-38 record but he was the starting point guard for the team for seven years.

Kidd is currently third on the odds board with +450 odds. Kidd has been a solid coach in the league as he has only finished with an under .500 record once and has made the playoffs three times.

Not to mention, he is also a minority owner in the team which could play a factor in his odds as well.

Now that Kidd has more coaching experience under his belt with players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kris Middleton, he can easily step in and coach Irving and Durant.

Bettors can take the chance on the longer odds here as on paper, Jason Kidd would be the ideal coach for this Brooklyn Nets team.
