Knicks Nearing Head Coach Decision After Interviewing Candidates

Knicks Nearing Head Coach Decision After Interviewing Candidates”

A league source confirmed on Tuesday morning that general manager Scott Perry and team president Steve Mills have talked to Brown about filling the vacancy created when Jeff Hornacek was sacked at the end of the regular season. Among the other reported candidates for the Knicks' vacancy are former Memphis coach David Fizdale, former Cleveland coach David Blatt, former Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer, former Golden State coach Mark Jackson, Miami assistant Juwan Howard, San Antonio assistant James Borrego, Toronto G League coach Jerry Stackhouse, Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga, Clippers assistant Mike Woodson and TV analyst Kenny Smith.

With the Knicks building around injured Kristaps Porzingis - rehabbing from a torn ACL - they are believed to be prioritizing a coach who is in tune with today's young players. That hire could come within the week, per Wojnarowski.

After interviewing Golden State Warriors' assistant, Mike Brown, the New York Knicks are preparing to make their next head coach official per reports from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mike Budenholzer is already a hot commodity on the National Basketball Association coaching market, and the Milwaukee Bucks are looking to throw their name into the mix now that they have officially been eliminated from the postseason.

The New York Knicks have completed interviews for the team's head coaching job, and hope to hire its new coach this week. Rather than committing to the first appealing possibility that comes their way, the Knicks have instead explored every avenue to success.

Maybe this will finally be the coach and front office pairing NY has been looking for.

Last season, the Knicks went 29-53 and finished 11th in the East. Mike D'Antoni had the longest tenure over that span when he coached the team from 2008-2012.
