BROOKLYN – The Brooklyn Nets have appointed Jordi Fernández as the franchise’s 24th head coach.

“Jordi Fernández is the ideal coach to lead our team,” said General Manager Sean Marks. “His diverse coaching experience across multiple levels demonstrates his ability to create winning systems tailored to his players. He builds strong relationships, earns respect, and his expertise will greatly benefit our team. We’re excited to welcome Jordi, Kelsey, and their children to the Brooklyn Nets family.”

Fernández most recently served as associate head coach for the Sacramento Kings, helping them clinch the 2023 Pacific Division title and their first playoff berth since 2006. He also led Canada’s Senior Men’s National Team to a historic bronze medal at the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

“Jordi’s leadership, focus on systems, and habit-building will forge a Nets identity that fans will be proud of,” said Nets Governor Joe Tsai. “We are thrilled to have him create a sustainable winning culture in Brooklyn.”

“I’m honored and grateful to lead the Nets,” said Fernández. “I can’t wait to work with this talented roster and build something truly special for Nets fans and the Brooklyn community.”

Fernández’s coaching experience includes stints with the Denver Nuggets, Canton Charge (NBA G League), and international teams for Spain and Nigeria.
