There has been a lot of turnovers for the Brooklyn Nets this offseason, but it hasn’t been with the roster as of right now. On Saturday, the Nets promoted G League Coach of the Year, Ronnie Burrell, to an assistant coach role on head coach Jacque Vaughn’s coaching staff, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.
Burrell, 39, was named G League Coach of the Year for the 2022-23 season after guiding Brooklyn’s G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, to a 23-9 record in the regular season before losing to the Delaware Blue Coats in the Eastern Conference Finals. Ironically, Delaware is the G League affiliate of the Philadelphia 76ers who played Brooklyn in the first round of the 2023 playoffs.
Scotto reported a few weeks ago that there was a possibility of Brooklyn adding Burrell to the coaching staff given how many assistant coaches were leaving for various reasons. Burrell began his coaching career in 2019 as an assistant coach for Long Island and before that, he played professional basketball, mostly in Europe, from 2005 to 2016.
