A day after firing interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo, the Brooklyn Nets did what almost everyone around the NBA expected they would do, contacting Phil Jackson and inquiring about his interest in coaching the team next season, according to a league source. The Nets will obviously wait to see if Jackson is at all willing to coach there before moving on to their list of other coaching candidates. There was no indication how long Jackson would take before responding to the inquiry.
