Knicks' Mike Woodson being evaluated on game-to-game basis

I’m not sure about you, but I’d likely work better knowing my job was secure. The same likely holds true for New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson, but apparently he won’t be granted that luxury as the head coach is reportedly be evaluated on a game-to-game basis.

A source with knowledge of the team’s thinking told ESPNNewYork.com last week that Woodson is being evaluated on a “game-by-game basis” by upper management.

Woodson is under contract through next season, but his salary likely wouldn’t impede Dolan if he wanted to make a change.

No owner in the NBA is as unpredictable or as impatient as James Dolan, so a move taking place if the Knicks continue to struggle would be a strong possibility.

Of course, the Knicks problems stem far greater than just Woodson (though he does share blame). However, I’m not sure removing the head coach is going to do much for the current roster which needs an overhaul and the removal of some strong personalities.
