Mikhail Prokhorov has been notably silent about his plans once he takes over the Nets. Still, Prokhorov has been regularly consulting with various basketball people and he's hearing he should retain Rod Thorn. Thorn, whose contract runs out June 30, says he wants to return. One possible competitor for the job, Toronto #2 Maurizo Gherardini, supports Thorn and no one's called the Raps to inquire about his contract.
