On Thursday, the Brooklyn Nets (the NBA team part-owned by rapper Jay-Z) announced that Avery Johnson has been fired as head coach.  General manger Billy King revealed that in the interim, P.J. Carlesimo will serve at the team’s coach.

As Jay-Z kicked off the opening of the Barclays Center with a series of high-profile concerts, the Brooklyn Nets got off to a fantastic start before slowly fading.  According to ESPN, Avery began the year with an 11-4 start and was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November, but the Nets have only won three of their last 13 games and currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.

Mikhail Prokhorov, the Nets principal owner, said “The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future.”
