PJ is toast and these reports just sell papers.Â In the new city they move to (Oklahoma) PJ just won’t cut it as a draw at the box office.Â There are to many other good coaches that could make a young roster like the Sonics rise next season.
Sonics general manager Sam Presti addressed the media at the team’s practice facility Thursday and did nothing to dispel rumors that head coach P.J. Carlesimo’s job may be in jeopardy. Presti said he and Carlesimo would sit down and evaluate the roster and coaching staff, but the GM did not come close to saying Carlesimo will coach the Sonics next season. While it was widely assumed Carlesimo had a long leash during the reclamation project, his status is uncertain.
