Nets P.J. Carlesimo won't be brought back as coach; who gets the gig?

Quote:
NEW YORK -- P.J. Carlesimo doesn't think winning Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals would've saved his job as coach of the Brooklyn Nets.

"I think short of winning a championship, it wouldn't have made any difference. I mean, Billy (King) was pretty candid," Carlesimo said during an interview on The Dan Patrick Show on Monday, a day after the general manager notified the interim coach he would not be offered a new contract. "Had we won Saturday and advanced and were getting ready to play the Heat tonight, I think anything short of winning a championship wasn't going to change his mind or (ownership's) mind."

The Nets announced on Sunday they wouldn't be retaining Carlesimo, who went 35-19 during the regular season after replacing Avery Johnson on an interim basis, but couldn't get the team out of the first round of the playoffs.

"Philosophically, I think Billy and the organization wanted someone that they felt was more in line with their thoughts and the way they felt about the roster and the whole situation going forward," Carlesimo said on ESPN Radio's The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

"They felt I wasn't the guy, so they gotta get the guy in here they want. It was a great opportunity, it was a nice job. This franchise is in great shape right now in terms of the move to Brooklyn and Barclays Center and everything is on the uptick right now.

"The roster is a good roster, it's a little tight, there's not a lot of flexibility going forward, but Billy and Mikhail Prokhorov are willing to do what they have to do to be successful, so I think it will be a very good opportunity for somebody."

You've got to think Phil Jackson is on their short list of coaches they want. Thoughts?

After connecting with Brooklyn today, Phil Jackson informed organization that he has no interest in coaching job, league source says.

Phil Jackson's inclination remains to return to the NBA in a broader management role.

No idea why teams try to eye Phil. If it's not the Lakers, he's not interested.

If they are, that means they're planning on making the playoffs next year instead of bottoming out.
