NEWARK — P.J. Carlesimo’s former Seton Hall players want his interim tag removed and would like to see him become the Nets’ full-time coach.

“I hope they actually keep him,” said Jerry Walker, a member of the 1992-93 Seton Hall team that was honored during Saturday’s 65-59 loss to Cincinnati.

“He deserves the opportunity. He’s doing a really good job and getting great reviews and hopefully they can keep him.”

Carlesimo addressed the crowd at the Prudential Center at halftime one night after the Nets beat the Bulls, 93-89, to improve to 14-5 on his watch.
