Updated: June 6, 2013

Can George Karl being let go by the Denver Nuggets this morning in a sudden move throw a wrench into the Brooklyn Nets coaching search?

Karl is 62 and was named the 2012-13 NBA Coach of the Year after leading the Nuggets to a team-record 57 games and the No. 3 seed in the West.

Keep an eye on this situation as Karl is one of the elite coaches in the NBA today and Brooklyn could do much worse.

Denver has already said they will reach out to the other two top Nets candidates in Brian Shaw and also Lionel Hollins.
