Sept. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Former New Jersey Nets All-Star Kenny Anderson will be hired as the basketball coach at the 120-student David Posnack Jewish Day School in Florida.

Anderson, a Queens, New York, native who lives in Pembroke Pines, Florida, will sign his contract today, Mitch Evron, the school’s athletic director, said in a telephone interview.

The 40-year-old Anderson spent 14 years in the National Basketball Association, playing with nine teams. He was selected by the Nets with the No. 2 pick in the 1991 draft out of Georgia Tech and made the 1994 All-Star team.

It’s the first coaching job for Anderson, who averaged 12.6 points and 6.1 assists during an NBA career that ended after the 2004-05 season.

The Davie, Florida, school’s basketball team went 10-11 last year and starts the current season Oct. 31, Evron said.

Anderson’s marketing representative, Bill Diamond, didn’t immediately return a call seeking a comment.
