Joe Dumars says he is not a candidate for a job with the New Jersey Nets.

Responding to reports that he could be a replacement for Rod Thorn, the Detroit president insisted Monday he doesn't have ``any interest in a basketball operations position with the Nets.'' Dumars adds his priority is putting together a team to get the Pistons back on track next season.

Thorn is leaving next week after 10 years as Nets president. General managers Jeff Bower of New Orleans and Sam Presti of Oklahoma City, and Nets vice president Bobby Marks are among the leading candidates to replace Thorn.
