In an interview with NBA.com, Brooklyn Nets General Manager Billy King said that he and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov would meet this week, potentially to discuss P.J. Carlesimo’s future with the franchise.
“We’ll talk about the job he’s done and where we’re at as a team, but I don’t think there’s a specific timetable,” King said to David Aldridge, noting that Prokhorov will be in town for Wednesday’s game against the Miami Heat and Friday’s game against the Chicago Bulls.
The Nets are 13-4 under Carlesimo after starting the season 14-14 under former coach Avery Johnson. Carlesimo is still listed as an interim coach, but will likely have the opportunity to coach for the rest of the season.
King also expressed his displeasure at Brook Lopez’s All-Star snub. “What he’s done for us on offense and defense… it’s a disgrace that (Brook) wasn’t put on the team.”
