Hornets reward Ronald Nored’s role in development of Brooklyn Nets’ prospects

Long Island Nets head coach Ronald Nored has been hired by the Hornets after playing a pivotal role in the rise of Brooklyn’s prospects.

Over the weekend, Adrian Wojnarowsi reported that Long Island Nets head coach Ronald Nored has been hired by the Charlotte Hornets as an assistant.

Nored is considered one of the great up and coming leaders in the basketball industry. After playing collegially at Butler for Brad Stevens, the rising mentor spent two years under the Celtics’ umbrella —- one campaign as an assistant with the Maine Red Claws and another one working in development with Boston.

He cashed in on his experience and respective teachings and turned it all into a head coaching gig with Long Island. Though his team amassed a 27-23 record this past year, they missed the postseason. Nevertheless, Coach Nored’s impact was felt tremendously. The Brooklyn Nets are a young team that utilized its minor league affiliate to perfection. Nored and his staff played a big role in the nurturing of both present and future NBA contributors. Such success in that regard is a big reason why he’s moving on up.
