1. Jacque Vaughn

Though the assortment of talent this Nets team has is far from a completely compatible bunch, ultimately, be it fair or not, it's up to the head coach to try and make the most with what they have and, so far, Jacque Vaughn has fallen rather short of such a task.

Throughout the season, we've seen a plethora of blunders from Brooklyn's headman, be it in the form of wasting key timeout opportunities like in their January 15 overtime game against the Miami Heat or, simply, poor late-game execution that has Brooklyn ranking in as a bottom-10 team in fourth quarters.

Recently, it seems that even some of Vaughn's own players are starting to grow dissatisfied with his coaching approach, as star centerpiece Mikal Bridges highlighted the coaching staff's unwillingness, or perhaps inability to change up the game plan when dealing with different lineups after their latest 50-point blowout loss to the Boston Celtics.

As things currently stand, Vaughn's seat is extremely hot as they approach an offseason that could see major shakeups. Should he not guide this team toward a winning record during their final 28 games of action, or at least make them look halfway decent, his first full season in charge of the Nets could very well prove to be his last.
