The Nets have consistently improved in their three seasons under Atkinson, from 20 victories in 2016-17 to their current 39, with four games remaining in the campaign.
He and general manager Sean Marks have earned wide praise for transforming the culture in Brooklyn, where first-time All-Star D'Angelo Russell and several other players are enjoying career seasons.
