Nets’ GM Wants to Hire a Coach He Already Knows


(Sean) Marks said he wouldn’t rule out any names from a coaching search that has been linked with Jeff Van Gundy, Tom Thibodeau, David Blatt and Ettore Messina.

Marks said he would want a coach he at least had some relationship with, to ensure the team-wide alignment.

“Not necessarily worked with before, [but] I will have known the guy. It won’t be, ‘Hey, I heard he’s good.’ There’s some I coached with, been coached by, or been part of a system they’ve been a part of too,’’ Marks said. “There will be some common bond, for sure.’’
