Tony Brown is finalizing a deal to join the Wizards as an assistant coach.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Brown would be the top assistant on Scott Brooks' staff. Brown served as the interim head coach of the Nets this season after the team fired Lionel Hollins, but he was no longer needed after the Nets gave their head-coaching position to Kenny Atkinson.

Scott Brooks has officially been hired as the Wizards' next head coach.

"I am beyond thrilled to return to coaching with a team that is filled with such potential and to be able to join an organization that is committed to helping us reach our goals," said Brooks. "I'm very grateful to Ted Leonsis and Ernie Grunfeld for this opportunity and I can promise the great fans of Washington that we will work extremely hard both on and off the court to represent them in a manner fitting the most powerful city in the world." Hopefully Brooks' rotations are less wacky this time around.

Scott Brooks has reportedly agreed to a deal to become the Wizards' next head coach.

It's reportedly a five-year deal worth $35 million. Brooks isn't the most popular guy in fantasy hoops circles, but he did manage to compile a winning record of 338-207 during his seven seasons at the helm in OKC. It'll be interesting to see how he alters Washington's rotations, but it's worth noting that he's reportedly a big believer in Otto Porter.

The Wizards are " actively intensifying" their pursuit for Scott Brooks, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

It makes sense. The Wizards were hoping for Tom Thibodeau, but he's off the market now. Plus, it would be slightly odd to add Jeff Hornacek after they traded for Markieff Morris in February. Brooks would be inheriting a Wizards team coming off a letdown. It sounds like the Wizards want to get a new coach ASAP.
Apr 20 - 4:18 PM

Scott Brooks is a "strong candidate" for the Wizards coaching job, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Wizards were 29th in isolation plays, so Brooks will probably boost that ranking with them. He got on fantasy owners nerves for sometimes not playing his best players, so it'll be interesting to see how he fits with the Wizards.

Scott Brooks is reportedly prepared to sit out the 2015-16 season.

Brooks has declined to interview for the open Magic, Pelicans, and Nuggets head coaching positions and seems inclined to wait a season before returning to the bench. While there may be a mystery team who emerges, it looks like fans will be seeing Brooks as an analyst on TV before seeing him on an NBA bench again.

Scott Brooks has declined to interview with the Pelicans and the Nuggets, and Yahoo Sports is reporting that he could sit out the 2015-16 season.

Brooks does plan on coaching again, but he wants to look into television opportunities and spend some time with his family. Brooks was the 2010 NBA Coach of the Year, and even though he excelled at player development, he received a lot of criticism for his inability to make in-game adjustments. We will let you know if he is linked to any other coaching positions.

Scott Brooks is reportedly being considered for the head coaching position in Orlando.

Orlando's first choice for their next head coach is reportedly Tom Thibodeau, who is rumored to be let go at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. However, if those rumors do not come to fruition, Scott Brooks is reportedly the runner-up candidate, with Golden States' assistant Alvin Gentry also being mentioned. As far as fantasy basketball is concerned, Brooks would not be the ideal candidate as his rotations are often very difficult to predict. Gentry's fast-passed style on the other hand makes for a fantasy friendly game.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are finalizing a deal to make Billy Donovan their next head coach, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

After 19 years at the University of Florida, it sounds like Donovan is finally ready to make the jump to the NBA and the deal could be announced as soon as Thursday. Donovan will inherit a talented Thunder roster, but will have very high expectations and will be faced with the possibility of Kevin Durant's departure as a free agent after the 2015-16 season. We'll update this item as soon as more information is available, but it sounds like Donovan will be in for an interesting first season in Oklahoma City.

Billy Donovan is close to reaching an agreement to be the next head coach of the Thunder, and an announcement is expected to be made on either Thursday or Friday.

This story has been brewing for a while now, so there aren't really any surprises here. Donovan will be pressured to win almost immediately, and it will be interesting to see what kind of relationship he forms with the likes of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka. We will let you know when the two sides reach an agreement.

Billy Donovan has "formally" begun talks with the Thunder regarding their head coach position.

It's no secret that Donovan is the clear favorite to land the job, and there are still no reports of additional candidates after Kevin Ollie pulled his name from consideration. We will continue to follow this story closely, but all signs point to Donovan coaching the Thunder in the 2015-16 campaign. For what it's worth, an offer could be made as early as today.

Billy Donovan will reportedly take the Thunder head coaching job if it is offered to him.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti visited Gainesville in February on what was rumored to be a trip to scout Donovan, so there may be some fire where there's smoke here. Kevin Ollie has reportedly pulled his name from consideration in Oklahoma City, so we'll keep a close eye to see if Donovan finally makes the jump to the NBA if and when the Thunder make an offer.

The Thunder have fired head coach Scott Brooks according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Wow. It's tough to blame Brooks after such an injury-plagued season, but he has been on the hot seat for a few seasons now and his offense and in-game adjustments have always been heavily criticized. Brooks had the public support of his star players, so it will be interesting to see if Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook or Serge Ibaka has anything to say about this. Brooks has reportedly become an instant contender for the head coaching jobs in Orlando and Denver, while University of Connecticut head coach Kevin Ollie and Florida Gators head coach Billy Donovan are among the many names being thrown around the rumor mill to replace Brooks in OKC.
Wed, Apr 22, 2015 01:30:00 PM

University of Connecticut head coach Kevin Ollie is being "seriously considered" for the Thunder head coaching job.

Last week, Yahoo! Sports reported that the Thunder will evaluate Scott Brooks, so there's going to be some extra heat on Brooks with this report. Ollie took the Huskies to the NCAA Championship in 2014 and was an NBA coaching candidate last summer. The Thunder failed to make the playoffs due to the injuries to Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka, but Brooks' offense has been criticized since he became a head coach. Expect the team to shoot the Ollie rumor down in the near future.

Scott Brooks said in Thursday's exit interview that he plans on being back with OKC next season.

"I expect to be the coach next season," he said. He's entering the final year of his contract and there has been some chatter that he might not be back. There is no shortage of evidence to point to indicating that a move should be made not just now, but many years ago, including the overuse of Kendrick Perkins, the lack of discipline and imagination on offense, playing time issues, letting Derek Fisher get torched so many times, out of bounds plays and more. His players like him and play hard for him though, but one wonders if that's enough to outweigh the obvious basketball decisions that have flopped.
