All owners of Deron should rejoice. This is great news. I can't think of another coach that uses as much ISO plays as Avery. This should have happened a long time ago.

Cue everyone calling Deron Williams a coach killer.

Might be true. I won't judge, I dont know him personally. But his track record doesn't look good.

Also, I'd like to officially throw my hat in the Nets coaching job vacancy.

Wow, I'm not sure if I should be shocked or not. On one hand, Avery mishandled his team's talents and failed to exploit many of his players' strengths. On the other hand, team chemistry is a mess and a lot of the players don't seem to be going out there looking for a win. While it isn't as bad as the Mike Brown firing, I do think it's a bit premature.

If Dwill doesn't pickup his play, he should switch professions.
