NEW YORK (AP) -- After dropping 10 of their last 13 games, the Brooklyn Nets have fired coach Avery Johnson.

The team's GM Billy King announced the move today without saying who will be interim coach. But according to someone with knowledge of the plans, assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo will coach the Nets at home tomorrow night against Charlotte.
