Steve Kerr Could Be Knicks' Coaching Candidate If Jackson Hired 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Mar 11, 2014 12:49 am

The New York Knicks and Phil Jackson continue to discuss a deal for him to run the front office.


Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that no one in Jackson's camp thinks a deal is "close."


Bill Simmons of ESPN reported on Sunday that Steve Kerr would be the leading candidate to become head coach if Jackson is hired. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News also reports Kerr could be strongly considered.


Kerr is currently an analyst with TNT and was previously general manager of the Phoenix Suns.

Judging by his amazing basketball mind, plus with all that playing, commentating and analytics experience, I reckon he'd at least hold his own.

Steve Kerr ? LOL, poor Knicks.

Won't happen anyway since Phil is just trolling Dolan and won't take the job.

The season ticket holders need to stop buying tickets until Dolan sells the team. This is just pathetic, every moron on the street could run the franchise better then that idiot.

Yeah, except Steve Kerr is not stupid and would not be interested in stressing himself out with the everyday grind of a lose, lose situation.

I think this comment is bang on. Kerr could coach but this would be more likely. Even if this isn't a glamorous time to coach the Knicks, it's still a good time to get his feet wet. I would like to see this all go down. Interesting story line.
