(NYC Sports Talk) Being that Steve Kerr has turned the down the Knicks offer to be their next head coach, Phil Jackson needs a backup plan. According to Marc Stein, Luke Walton, Tyronn Lue, and Derek Fisher are all under consideration… Wait what no Mark Jackson???
Three candidates who will thus receive consideration from Jackson, sources said, are Luke Walton and Tyronn Lue — former players under Jackson who have already begun their coaching careers — as well as Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher– if Fisher elects to stop playing after this season as he has hinted.
Knicks president Phil Jackson has Fisher at the top of his list of coaching candidates.
Do you think Fisher would be a quality head coach for the Knicks?
I’m just curious to why hasn’t NY native Mark jackson been named as one of the candidates to become the Knicks head coach.
