 MIAMI (AP) -Pat Riley has been hearing questions about his coaching future for weeks. He still isn't in the mood to answer.
The Miami Heat coach and president, who announced last summer he would remain on the sideline through the end of the 2009-2010 season, refused to say Wednesday if that plan has changed.
Yet he's aware Wednesday night's finale against Atlanta could be the 1,904th and final regular-season game of his Hall of Fame coaching career.
``Yes, I've given thought to that fact,'' said Riley, whose team will finish with the league's worst record this season.
Riley said he'll likely meet with Heat owner Micky Arison next week to decide his future.
``Borne out of that conversation, I'll make a decision,'' Riley said. ``The conversation with him is going to be important for a lot of reasons. I really want to do what's in the best interest of the Heat.''
