Nets hire Hawks assistant Kenny Atkinson as new coach

NEW YORK (AP) Kenny Atkinson has become one of the NBA's most respected assistant coaches, helping the Atlanta Hawks to their best season ever.

The Brooklyn Nets think he's ready to run his own team.

The Nets hired Atkinson as their new coach on Sunday, bypassing the type of big names they've targeted for the bench in Brooklyn and turning to someone experienced with developing winning programs gradually.
