Paul Westhead is 100 percent focused on the Phoenix Mercury as they head into the Western Conference finals.
But that doesn't mean he won't at least address his future, especially with all the recent speculation that he might be headed to join the staff of longtime friend and new Seattle SuperSonics coach P.J. Carlesimo.
"My contract with the Mercury is up at the season's end, and I'm going to be a free agent," said Westhead, who has known Carlesimo for three decades and was on the Golden State Warriors staff when Carlesimo was choked by Latrell Sprewell in 1997. "I've been in a place where I didn't have a job before. I've done that. I just have to see who might be interested in me, if anyone."
On Thursday, Carlesimo added Scott Brooks, Mark Bryant and Ralph Lewis to his Sonics coaching staff.
