Report: Nets finalizing extensions for coach Atkinson, staff

The Brooklyn Nets are nearing contract extensions for head coach Kenny Atkinson and his staff, ESPN reported Tuesday.
The Nets are 39-39 ahead of Wednesday’s game against Toronto and vying for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference for the first time since 2015. They’re currently the 7 seed with four games to play in a year they weren’t predicted to be very good.
Nets general manager Sean Marks hired Atkinson in 2016. Atkinson won 20 games in his first season with the team and improved to 28 wins last year.
Atkinson had been a career assistant coach with the Knicks and Hawks prior to landing his post with the Nets.
