San Antonio assistant coaches Ettore Messina and Ime Udoka are amongst others that are in line for the coaching job for Brooklyn. New Brooklyn GM Sean Marks, former Spurs assistant, has ties to both Messina and Udoka from his time in the San Antonio. Messina coached CSKA Moscow while Udoka played 316 NBA games — including two seasons in San Antonio.

This news comes as no surprise to many in San Antonio. Every year San Antonio’s coaching staff is always looked as being potential replacements for vacancies around the league. It is the perks of being under the wing of probably one of if not the best coach in all of basketball, Gregg Popovich.

Needing a complete overhaul of their roster, Brooklyn has not had a coach whom has lasted two consecutive full seasons since the team moved to Brooklyn in 2012-13.
