With Atkinson calling the shots, the Nets have vastly improved this season. They are currently 39-39, seventh in the Eastern Conference standings.

Following the failed experiment of bringing in Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in a trade with the Boston Celtics back in 2014, Nets General Manager Sean Marks and Atkinson collaborated on rebuilding the franchise through deft personnel decisions and a strong player development program. There has also been a significant improvement in the franchise's atmosphere since the two teamed up in 2016.

Prior to coaching the Nets, Kenny Atkinson spent a combined eight years as an assistant coach for the New York Knicks and the Atlanta Hawks.

The Nets, who already have a promising young core comprised of D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen, could also land a top free agent this summer. They have enough cap space to sign at least one max contract player.

The team certainly would like to see Atkinson at the helm when their rebuilding phase is complete.
