Nets GM: ‘We’re going to let P.J. coach’
After seeing the Nets pick up victories over the hapless Bobcats and Cavaliers in their first two games with P.J. Carlesimo in charge, general manager Billy King Sunday again threw his support behind his interim coach.
King said the Nets haven’t contacted any other candidates, and Carlesimo is going to get a chance to coach the team and see what he can do.
“We’ve put our support behind him, and we’ll look at things and evaluate them later,” King said while appearing on ESPN 98.7 FM. “I know people have been throwing lists together and things like that, but we have not contacted anybody.
“We have not sat down and said, ‘What about this guy?’ We made the move, and we’re going to let P.J. coach.”
