While Jeff Van Gundy does have interest in the Brooklyn Nets’ opening, he’ll be likely unwilling to meet with team officials while an interim coach is in place during the season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Brooklyn hasn’t contacted Van Gundy, but sources said he’s one of several candidates, including assistant Kelvin Sampson, that are on the organization’s short list.
The Nets haven’t reached out to Van Gundy, but he’s well regarded on every level of the organization’s ownership and management charts.
