Report: Paul Westphal to join Brooklyn Nets' staff

Wednesday July 9th, 2014
The Brooklyn Nets will soon finalize an agreement with former Sacramento Kings coach Paul Westphal to join the team's coaching staff, according to a report from Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

The team named Lionel Hollins as head coach earlier this week. Westphal, a long-time NBA head coach for the Phoenix Suns and the Seattle Supersonics, was fired by the Kings in January 2012 after two unsuccessful seasons. 

Nets assistant coach Joe Prunty agreed to join the Milwaukee Bucks' staff on Wednesday.
