LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari says he’s not talking with “ANYBODY” about an NBA coaching job and plans on being with the Wildcats for a long time.

The Brooklyn Nets, whom Calipari coached to a 72-112 mark from 1996-99 while in New Jersey, fired Lionel Hollins on Sunday. Last summer, Calipari shot down reports about the New Orleans Pelicans’ coaching vacancy that was filled by Alvin Gentry.

A message left with Calipari’s management company, Creative Artists Agency, was not immediately returned.

The Hall of Famer said Monday via Twitter that he has the best coaching job in sports. Calipari added during the Southeastern Conference coaches’ teleconference that “anytime you can be in the hunt for championships, you have one of the best jobs. … One that I appreciate having.”
