Adrian Wojnarowski tweets that P.J. Carlesimo is a "strong candidate" to join the Nets' coaching staff. The Nets have lost assistant Larry Krystkowiak to the University of Utah and may lose Sam Mitchell to the Timberwolves in the coming weeks.
After leading Seton Hall to the national championship game in 1989, Carlesimo was a head coach for the Blazers, Warriors and Sonics/Thunder in the NBA, compiling a 204-296 record. He's also been an assistant for the Spurs for five years, and was on Jay Triano's bench in Toronto last season.
