Avery, Mikhail: Very Good Moves, Billy: Not So Good, Say ESPN 'Minds'

The ESPN "Best Basketball Minds" continue.  In Tuesday's segment, ESPN's 93 "Minds" examine ownership, management and coaching changes in the NBA.

Nets score high in ownership and management change (Mikhail Prokhorov for Bruce Ratner), finishing a close second to the Warriors' switch, while coaching (Avery Johnson for Kiki Vandeweghe) was also ranked second, behind the Bulls'.  But the "Minds" called Billy King for Rod Thorn the summer's single worse management move, and by a 2-1 margin.

Meanwhile, Mike Fratello tells Nets Are Scorching how he thinks Johnson will run the Nets. " Johnson will try to establish a defensive presence at one end of the floor, and at the other end explore his transition opportunities with a guy like Devin Harris who has speed and quickness to push the ball and penetrate."
