Boy, that was fast.  Hours after being eliminated in Game 7 by the Bulls, the Nets decided to remove P.J. Carlesimo as coach.  We’ll be keeping a close eye on Brooklyn as they figure to start weeding through candidates immediately.  Here’s more from the week that was..

  • The Timberwolves made it official and brought former coach Flip Saunders aboard to run the show.  Saunders takes over for the much maligned David Kahn and hopes to find more success than his predecessor.
  • The Bucks got rid of coach Jim Boylan after Milwaukee was bounced in the first round by the Heat.
  • Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett said they weren’t thinking retirement last week, but there’s still speculation that they both won’t be back next season.
  • The Pistons hired  Phil Jackson to consult in their coaching search.  Meanwhile, the Zen Master says he’s still open to other NBA opportunities.  The Raptors are ramping things up.
  • Jarrett Jack said no to in-season extension talks.
  • The Pistons will talk with Nate McMillan.
  • Despite all the talk to the contrary, the Lakers might be keen on keeping Pau Gasol.
  • The Clippers will decide on Vinny Del Negro soon.  But don’t expect Jackson to be in the mix.
  • Here’s the official early entrant list for the 2013 draft.
  • The Pistons like Kelvin Sampson but they’ve got a new candidate in the frey as well.
  • Rockets GM Daryl Morey officially inked his four-year extension.
  • No surprise here, Damian Lillard is the Rookie of the Year.
  • The Cavs like Tony Allen.
  • Danny Ferry is mulling his options when it comes to Larry Drew.
