Nets Want John Calipari Back?

Amid the ongoing presumptions in coaching circles that Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov will want to pursue a marquee name for his bench this summer, given that the Nets won’t have the financial flexibility to make a free-agent splash, Kentucky’s Head Coach John Calipari’s name is bound to resurface as a top target.
Yet, every expert on the matter nonetheless insists that Kentucky’s nightmarish season actually makes it even less likely that we’ll see Calipari back in the NBA anytime soon.
The strong word in coaching circles is that Calipari — while cognizant of the fact that Prokhorov is the one owner out there who could comfortably put the sort of “Monopoly money” on the table, as one insider describes it, to trump the big bucks he makes in Lexington, he will be itching to come back with a vengeance next season.
