Kiki Vandeweghe's days as Nets General Manager are numbered.

New owner Mikhail Prokhorov said as much this morning in a brunch with reporters, when the subject of management was raised.

Asked specifically about Vandeweghe, Prokhorov replied, "His contract is up, and I wish him luck."

Earlier, Prokhorov reiterated that he is negotiating an extension for team president Rod Thorn.

When the subject of a new coach was broached, Prokhov all but dismissed Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.

"The new coach must have NBA experience," Prokhorov said. "Coach K does not have NBA experience."
