Nets general manager Sean Marx said: "Firing Vaughn was a very difficult decision! Under Vaughn's coaching this season, the Nets have a 21-33 record, and they have suffered 18 defeats in the last 24 games! The Nets are currently ranked 11th in the East, but the team's goal this year is not to mess up, and poor results are a matter of course.

According to sources, multiple players have lost faith in Vaughn! There are concerns within the Nets that Vaughn will hinder their chances of getting top players. Shams revealed some details of Vaughn's departure, with a number of players including Dinwiddie and Bridges, who often speak out in the locker room, believing that Vaughn's offense lacks system!

At the beginning of the season, Vaughn emphasized that the team's offensive system is very free, but this kind of offense is very demanding on the players' ball quotient. It's funny that Vaughn finally built the offense on Simmons and let Simi be the team's No. 1 brain organization, but Simmons's attendance was too low, which also caused dissatisfaction among the players on the team!

Some fans also said that there was nothing wrong with Vaughn's decision, and although Simmons did not play, he was indeed the most suitable candidate for the No. 1 position compared to anyone else on the team! The premise of establishing an offensive system is to have a core, and obviously the Nets do not have such a figure now, Bridges and Dinwiddie try to ask who can be the core? With Dinwiddie joining the Lakers, the Nets' greatest hope can only be Bridges.

According to ESPN, after firing Vaughn, the Nets' plan is to rebuild the roster around Bridges this summer! Bridges is averaging 21.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this season, but most fans still think that Ohashi is not suitable to be the core of the team, and he is more suitable for the role of second leader or championship puzzle, what do you think?

In fact, there were a lot of trade rumors about Bridges before the trade deadline, and many teams were interested in the striker. What's even more outrageous is that the Rockets are even willing to give away five protected first-round pick chips in order to get Bridges! But even so, the Nets refused, and the management treated the bridge as a non-sale for the team. What a dare to give, a dare to refuse......

Jacque Vaughn was officially promoted from assistant coach to Nets head coach after Nash was fired in November 2022, and his contract (with an annual salary of $5 million) expires at the end of the season. During his tenure at the helm of the Nets, Vaughn led the team to a 71-68 record, a 51.1% winning percentage.

In fact, Vaughn has taken over the Nets coaching staff since 2016, first as an assistant coach at Atkinson, then as an assistant coach to Nash, and finally "promoted" to the position of head coach, but the result is still inevitably the fate of the class. Interestingly, Vaughn didn't just coach the Nets, he also played for the Nets, passing No. 11 and defending Nash.

If you want to say that Vaughn's most glorious moment in coaching, it must be the original Big Three Nets, since Nash left Vaughn to take over, the Nets have directly become another team, playing more and more team-oriented, and winning is becoming easier and easier.
