The Brooklyn Nets pivoted amid reports that they intended to hire suspended Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka, instead lifting the interim tag from Jacque Vaughn's title as their replacement for Steve Nash.

Vaughn's deal runs through the 2023-24 season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowksi.

The Nets and Nash "agreed to part ways" on Nov. 1, following a 2-6 start to the season, when the team tabbed Vaughn as acting head coach. Not an hour passed before multiple reports indicated the Nets would hire Udoka, Nash's former assistant, who led the Celtics to the NBA Finals in his debut as a head coach.
