Breaking Nets fire Avery Johnson

By Mike Mazzeo | Special to ESPNNewYork.com

The Brooklyn Nets have relieved Avery Johnson of his coaching duties, general manager Billy King announced Thursday.

P.J. Carlesimo has been named the interim coach, a source told ESPN.

One NBA coaching source told ESPN.com that the Nets will immediately start a broad search for Johnson's replacement, which will include a call to gauge Phil Jackson's interest after Jackson was bypassed by the Lakers in November after Mike Brown was fired five games into the season.

A list of the top available coaching names includes Jackson, Jerry Sloan, Stan Van Gundy, Nate McMillan, Mike Dunleavy, Brown, and ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy and Flip Saunders.

The prospect of a Sloan reunion with Deron Williams seems highly unlikely, however, after the coach's abrupt resignation in Utah in February 2010 two weeks before the Jazz decided to deal Williams to the Nets. But the coaching source did not rule the possibility that Brooklyn will also sound out Southern Methodist University's Larry Brown about a possible NBA return given Brown's close association with Nets general manager Billy King.

A source told ESPN Los Angeles that the Nets have not placed an "official" call to gauge Jackson's interest yet. If they do, Jackson would entertain the idea in much the same way he did when the Lakers called him and he spent the weekend analyzing the Lakers roster and visualizing how he would turn it into a championship team.

Johnson, who was in the final year of his contract, was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start. But the Nets have won just three of their past 13 games in December, prompting the team to go in another direction.

The Nets, at 14-14, currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.

It's time to put up or shut up for D-Will. He's forced a trade and gotten two coaches fired. He's gotta play a lot better than he is right now

Maybe it's just as well that the Mavs didn't sign him after all.
