NBA Rumors: Stephen A Smith thinks Mark Jackson wants to coach Knicks


Everyday there is a new rumor about the New York Knicks.

Today’s rumor is centered around who their next Head Coach could be despite currently having a Head Coach in Mike Woodson. Stephen A. Smith of ESPN seems to think that Golden State Warriors Head Coach Mark Jackson would be open to getting bought out of his current contract and coaching the Knicks:

“I would rather have Tom Thibodeau or Mark Jackson — who would be interested in coming here and would be interested in bought out of his contract in Golden State,” Smith said.

I suppose there could be a chance that Jackson is open to this. However, it’s also likely that the Knicks are using Stephen A to push their agenda. I don’t see this happening but stranger things have happened.
