This NBA off-season’s most intriguing aspect thus far hasn’t featured any player or player-related turmoil. Instead, it has focused on the coaches. The number of coaches who won championships who were fired by teams has been very intriguing to see. The Warriors and Raptors are involved in the most recent movement.
The Warriors assistant coach Kenny Atkinson has reportedly been questioned by the Toronto Raptors for the open head coaching position in Toronto, according to a Marc Stein report.
Since 2021, Atkinson has been a member of the Golden State Warriors and participated in their championship-winning campaign. He spent one season as an assistant coach with the LA Clippers before to joining the Warriors.
The Brooklyn Nets’ 2018–19 squad’s trip to the NBA Playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round after five games, stands out as the most notable accomplishment of Atkinson’s time as head coach of the team.
Despite what it would seem like, the team had some of the strongest chemistry in the NBA, and the culture they fostered led to the additions of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
The Charlotte Hornets extended a head coaching offer to Kenny Atkinson during the NBA Finals of the previous season, which he declined. It will be intriguing to see if the Warriors can retain Atkinson once more.
