Changes are coming in New York.
It’s just a matter of how soon.
With that being said, it looks like Steve Kerr is the leading candidate for the job.
Kerr has been linked to the Knicks now on a couple of occasions as Mike Woodson is almost certainly going to be let go after the season.
Frank Isola of the New York Daily News first suggested earlier this month that there was a decent chance Kerr would replace Woodson after the season, and there’s been plenty of speculation surrounding the TNT broadcaster and former Suns GM since.
Now, a source tells Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today that Kerr is indeed the favorite to coach the Knicks next year.
Kerr hasn’t talked publically about his desire to coach, but with Woodson on the hot seat all season long and the opportunity makes sense with Jackson now calling the shots.
In addition, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports that many around the organization quickly came to believe that Kerr will take over on the bench.
