Looks like Avery Johnson is brining in some real big-chair experience to the Nets bench.

Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted this:

P.J. Carlesimo is a strong candidate to join Avery Johnson’s coaching staff in New Jersey, league sources tell Y! Sports.

Carlesimo has six full seasons and a few partial ones as a head coach, plus he has been an assistant in a number of places including in San Antonio when Tim Duncan was winning them titles. Carlesimo is a good guy to have on a bench, if they get him this is a good hire.

    Now they can further bolster their staff by adding Latrell Sprewell. It’ll keep P.J. in line, and he can start paying his back taxes….the Great State of Wisconsin needs the $$$ bad.

    PJ is a much better assistant than head coach.
