INDIANAPOLIS - Mike Krzyzewski isn't interested in leaving Duke for the Nets.

Krzyzewski said through a spokesman that he hasn't been contacted by the Nets and "wouldn't have any interest in the job." The Bergen Record, citing anonymous sources, reported that incoming Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov would offer Krzyzewski $12 million to $15 million per season.

Krzyzewski said in a statement Monday that "you would be flattered if someone would offer you a job, but I would not be interested." Krzyzewski, who coached Duke in the national championship game last night, has refuted rumors about the Nets before.

Speaking after a victory over Maryland on Feb. 13, Krzyzewski joked that "no one's contacted me, and if they do, I think 'nyet' would be easy for me to say." - AP
