Carlesimo: Championship Would’ve Saved Job

P.J. Carlesimo doesn’t think winning Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Chicago Bulls 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 Nets 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.”
