CONTINUES THE RACE BY THE BENCH BROOKLYN While P.J. Carlesimo wins his second straight game with the Brooklyn Nets, in the offices of the franchise still working to gain the services of a head coach as soon as possible. The three names that sound even within the New York team are Phil Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy and Kelvin Sampson. However, it seems that there is still nothing clear about it. What does not seem unreasonable to think is that PJ himself Carlesimo will be in charge of taking the reins until end of season, in the case of not finding anything that fits the claims of the franchise. Meanwhile, Phil Jackson and said he was not interested in the position, but the Nets are still trying to pressure the coach to convince him to sit on his stool, as announced by USA Today. The franchise owner, billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov has made it clear that money is not a problem for the team. Meanwhile, Jeff Van Gundy told the U.S. that is not rotating conducting any negotiations with Brooklyn. The coach, who for so ...
The Nets have "serious interest" in hiring Phil Jackson, according to USA Today, and the team "fully intends...to persuade him." Mikhail Prokhorov wants to win a championship within three years and Jackson already has 11 rings as a coach (13 overall). Prokhorov also has enough money to meet the Zen Master's outrageous salary demands, so this is more than mere speculation. Jeff Van Gundy is on the Nets' radar, but he said that he won't talk to Brooklyn about the job while a coach is in place because, "P.J. [Carlesimo] deserves every chance to succeed." If their top choices fall through, the Nets are reportedly "willing to wait until the offseason to find a new coach." Stay tuned. Like If You Want To See Phil Jackson As The Nets Coach! -JR
JACKSON, PROKHOROV… AND VODKA The Nets have “firmly targeted” Phil Jackson to take over as coach, Howard Beck reports in the New York Times. Which is how it should be. Jackson is the ultimate closer and not a developer and Brooklyn has enough pieces to plot a playoff run. The former Knick speaks fondly about the city and owner Mikhail Prokhorov has the kind of deep pockets required to even start a conversation. There is no word from Jackson himself on whether the feeling is mutual. But there is the way-back machine and Jackson being asked about Prokhorov on May 25, 2010. “I’d like to have a vodka with him at some point,” Jackson said. “He seems like a very interesting young man.” The backstory is important. Jackson, who was still coaching the Lakers but about to become a free agent, was talking in Phoenix before a playoff game. He was clearly loving the chance to tweak L.A. management, a favorite pastime. It was Jackson doing serve-and-volley with the media and not caring if his wandering ...
Avery Johnson Canned, Phil Jackson On Nets' Radar iven the way the Nets have played lately, something had to change. Avery Johnson learned that the hard way Thursday, when his 2 1/2-year stint with the organization ended when he was relieved as head coach in a meeting with general manager Billy King. "It was a tough decision," King said during a press conference at the team's practice facility. "I've worked well with Avery for 2 1/2 years, but the way we've been playing lately ... in talking with ownership, I spoke to them this morning and the decision was made." King said the decision to fire Johnson, who finished with a 60-116 record in his two-plus years with the Nets, came from ownership. Billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov clearly wasn't happy with the direction the team was headed after committing over $330 million in current and future salaries in order to field a contender in the first season in Brooklyn, and chose to fire his coach who only weeks ago earned the Eastern Conference's Coach of the M ...
The Brooklyn Nets plan to gauge the interest of Phil Jackson in becoming the team's next head coach, according to a report by Marc Stein of ESPN on Thursday afternoon. Brooklyn relieved Avery Johnson of his head coaching duties on Thursday. The team currently sits in third place in the Atlantic Division with a 14-14 record, which team owner Mikhail Prokhorov is displeased with. The decision to fire Johnson reportedly came directly from Prokhorov and was something that he had been considering throughout December. Citing a source, Stein reports that the Nets plan to engage in a broad search for their next head coach, which will include an inquiry to Jackson's level of interest. Jackson last coached during the 2010-11 season with the Los Angeles Lakers. When the Lakers fired head coach Mike Brown earlier this season, Jackson was one of the candidates the team considered for the vacant position. Los Angeles ultimately hired Mike D'Antoni. Jackson has won 11 NBA Championships as a head coach and has an all-tim ...
