When the news came down yesterday the Nuggets had decided to part ways with reigning NBA Coach of the Year George Karl, a new name was thrown smack into the middle of the seemingly never-ending coaching carousel this spring.

And though the Nets have an opening, it doesn’t appear that Karl will be filling it. The team, according to a league source, doesn’t have much interest in Karl.

The biggest impact Karl’s newfound unemployment potentially has on the Nets opening is in increasing the competition for the top coaching candidates on the market. The Nuggets now rival the Nets and Clippers for the most desirable job on the market — having won 57 games last season before losing to the Warriors in the first round of the playoffs and boasting a deep pool of young, talented players on their roster.
