Black Wednesday in the NBA: Brooks, Van Gundy and Donnie Nelson, fired

This Wednesday was a black day in the NBA. In addition to the confirmed casualties of Kawhi
Leonard Y Chris
Paul, several members of the technical staff of the teams were left without work.

The Washington
Wizards announced that they have decided not to renew their coach’s contract, Scott
Brooks, so they already begin the search for a new tenant for their bench.

Brooks He has lasted five seasons at the head of the capital after his departure from Oklahoma and just this year he has managed to qualify the team for the playoff, in a squad led by Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook.

Another fallen has been Stan van gundy. This has barely lasted a year in New Orleans, at the head of the Pelicans. He arrived in October of last year in place of Alvin Gentry but his time in Louisiana has come to an end.

Gundy has not been able to classify his team, a staff loaded with talent with Zion
Williamson and Brandon Ingram at the head, to play the playoffs, so the franchise has decided to do without him.

As if that were not enough, on Wednesday afternoon another victim left us. This time it was not a coach, but a general
Manager, Donnie Nelson, who had been working for the Mavericks.

Maybe that of Nelson It was the biggest surprise of those experienced yesterday in the NBA. The manager and the franchise decided to separate their paths, and Mark
Cuban He has already hired a specialized talent scouting firm to replace his head of basketball operations.
