Nets likely to shake up coaching staff after disappointing season

When a Nets team that was the pick to win the title by both Vegas and NBA GMs finished just seventh in the East — and was swept in the first round of the playoffs — some wondered if they would have a different head coach next season.

Why the Milwaukee Bucks should inquire about a P.J. Washington trade

After falling short in the playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks must remain aggressive this offseason as they look to improve their roster for next season.
