Nets Won’t Offer New Contract to Carlesimo After Playoff Exit

May 05, 2013

The Brooklyn Nets said P.J. Carlesimo won’t return as coach next season, a day after the team was eliminated from the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Carlesimo was named interim coach on Dec. 28 after Avery Johnson was fired following 10 defeats in 13 games.

“The Brooklyn Nets organization would like to thank P.J. for his efforts with the team in his roles as both head coach and assistant, and for his contributions to the team’s success both on and off the court,” Nets General Manager Billy King said in an e-mailed news release today.

Carlesimo had a 35-19 record as interim head coach. The Chicago Bulls last night beat the Nets 99-93 in a decisive seventh game to advance to the second round of the playoffs. It was Brooklyn’s first trip to the postseason since 2007.
