The Brooklyn Nets have contacted former Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls great Phil Jackson about replacing P.J. Carlesimo as the team's head coach, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.
If Jackson turns down the Nets' offer, they will next look to the likes of Larry Brown and Brian Shaw. Neither Nate McMillan nor brothers Jeff and Stan Van Gundy are on the club's wish list, according to Broussard. This list could of course change depending on the responses Brooklyn receives from its top picks.
Among other potential candidates, Doc Rivers would not be interested in joining the Nets if he was released from his contract by the Boston Celtics. Broussard also notes that former Utah Jazz coach -- remember him and Deron Williams -- is viewed as a long-shot candidate.
Another candidate that's potentially emerging into the mix is Mike Dunleavy, considering his relationship with Billy King.
But the search with start with Jackson, as most are expected to this summer. Even if Jackson isn't interested in coach, King told reporters that he would be willing to acquire him in a front office role.
