The Brooklyn Nets have relieved Avery Johnson of his coaching duties, general manager Billy King announced Thursday.

Johnson, who was in the final year of his contract, was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start. But the Nets have won just three of their last 13 games in December, prompting the team to go in another direction.

The Nets, at 14-14, currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.

"The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future," principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said.

Johnson was named coach of the Nets on June 15, 2010. In two-plus seasons with the Nets, Johnson compiled a record of 60-116.

CALLED IT!

Avery Johnson is a sh*t coach.

Now the only thing the Nets have to do is hire a good coach and the rest will fix itself.

Um... good luck finding a good coach tho.

Well I was getting worried about the Nets, but this just sends me into panic mode. I wonder what they will do for the rest of the season.

" Avery got fired ? He was just coach of the month wasn't he ? That's like a player getting player of the month and getting traded a month later"-LeBron

Larry Brown has a good relationship with Nets GM Billy King, is from Brooklyn, and we all know he rather be in the NBA than at SMU.

Yeah I was thinking of Brown too.

He always comes in and changes the atmosphere of teams.

The problem is that teams can only hang onto him for about 3 seasons or less. Sometimes it's Brown, sometimes it's the team.

They're gonna contact Phil Jackson.

Yeah but the only way he takes the job is if he wants to spite the Lakers.

I wish they would get Phil Jackson but I doubt that he is really considering the Nets unless he wants to spite the Lakers also. I mean Brooklyn is in a big market. Phil can make Dwill, Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez shine. But I still think he will pass. I had thought maybe Stan Van Gundy but he already reported that he is not interested.

I honestly don't think they should have fired him, not yet at least.
