Nets' former coach Atkinson turns down Hornets' job, remains with GSW

 In a stunning move, Golden State assistant coach Kenny Atkinson has reversed course after being named the next head coach this past week of the Charlotte Hornets and decided to stay in the Bay Area.

The former Nets head man was a hot name on the head coaching market after an abrupt ending to his tenure as head coach that ran for three seasons in Brooklyn.

 Atkinson had an opportunity to take over a talented, but young roster on Charlotte with LaMelo Ball, Miles Bridges headlining a talented roster.

While an opportunity to chase back to back titles with a Warriors squad looking to write a second chapter to their dynasty, Atkinson's decision comes as a shock for a man who is well deserving of a second opportunity as a head coach in the league.
