Knicks Coaching Search Update

by ny-hoops on April 25, 2018

With Scott Perry and Steve Mills taking their exhaustive coaching search overseas this week, the field is a smorgasborg of Republican debate stage proportions. Jerry Stackhouse, David Fizdale, Mark Jackson, Kenny Smith, Mike Budenholzer, Mike Woodson, David Blatt, and James Borrego round out the field to date, with Villanova’s Jay Wright, and Jeff Van Gundy officially out of the running. There’s an NBA.com Roundtable discussion on the topic, though they even are looking at expanding the field to include Doc Rivers. There’s a good shot at making the right selection with either of Fizdale, Budenholzer or Stackhouse without bringing back a former/always Knick like Jackson or Woodson. Nothing wrong with talking to Kenny Smith, but making him the head coach after interviewing this otherwise great list of candidates would be disappointing.
