No way it happens. First, the arena he has been pushing for is set to open next season. Second, he has a monster class coming in 2011 and then I expect him to retire after taking one last shot at a championship.
And, on the other hand, why would the Nets want him? He failed miserably in Boston and is no longer a hot name in the college ranks. He's a great coach but the job he has done at Louisville hardly warrants another shot at the NBA.
