Dave D'Alessandro provides new details on Del Harris' departure, confirming that Harris wanted the Nets to promote him to head coach. Kiki Vandeweghe would then return to the front office. When Harris' agent broached the subject, Rod Thorn replied, "He will not be the next head coach here. So if he has any delusions about that, you should let him know it’s not going to happen." Harris then quit.
