The Knicks search is off and running
The New York Knicks head coaching role search has been going on for some time now. They are expected to interview around 8-10 candidates, including Mike Brown.
Dallas Mavericks assistant Jamahl Mosley and Orlando Magic assistant Pat Delany are also in the fray. They are also considering former Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau.
The list is strong, with the NYK very serious about getting the very best onboard. Mick Brown has the experience and the success to back his candidature. His experience of working with a megastar like LeBron James will also come in handy.
