Avery Johnson told season ticket-holders about it Wednesday. Now it's official.  The Nets will have five assistant coaches, including two former head coaches.

Sam Mitchell of the Raptors, who like Johnson is a former NBA Coach of the Year, and Larry Krystkowiak of the Bucks will join holdovers John Loyer and Tom Barrise and former Mavericks assistant Popeye Jones.

Johnson, Mitchell and Krystkowiak all signed multi-year deals with their former teams before being fired.
