Devin Harris Wants Avery Johnson in NJ
Here’s one vote for Avery Johnson as the next coach of the Nets.
"I love Avery. Love him," said Devin Harris, who played for Johnson in Dallas and hopes to do so again with the Nets.
"Avery would be a good coach anywhere."
The Nets will search for a coach when their catastrophic season, which continues tonight in Milwaukee (8:00, WBBR-1130 AM, no TV), concludes in another week.
There could be a pursuit of Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, though three times publicly he has said he is not interested. Jeff Van Gundy also is a favorite. And Johnson is in the mix.
