Details of Vaughn’s new contract

Having helped stabilise the franchise during a turbulent campaign which has seen Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving depart for the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks respectively, Vaughn has been given the chance to lead the team for the long haul. While the Nets did not reveal details of Vaughn’s new deal due to team policy, a report from ESPN has claimed the contract will run through the 2026-27 season.

Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks said: “Jacque has made an immediate and immeasurable impact on our entire organisation since assuming the role of head coach earlier this season. On the court, he’s clearly demonstrated his leadership through his ability to connect and communicate at a very high level while displaying tremendous instincts for the game. As a person, they don’t come any better than Jacque. We are thrilled to have Jacque lead the Nets for years to come.”
