NEW YORK (AP) - Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King says P.J. Carlesimo will not return as coach.
The Nets' first season in Brooklyn ended Saturday night with a Game 7 home loss to the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.
Carlesimo replaced Avery Johnson, who was fired in December after the team lost 10 of 13 games.
Under Carlesimo, the Nets righted themselves and finished 49-33 and in second place in the Atlantic Division.
Brooklyn was the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
