NBA Rumors: Steve Kerr to listen to other coaching offers before accepting Knicks job


The New York Knicks have fired head coach Mike Woodson and while we all saw it coming, the search to find a replacement for him. It’s been long rumored that TNT analyst Steve Kerr is in line to get the job from former coach Phil Jackson and that took a giant leap forward on Monday.

But while it’s looking like Kerr is the man to beat for the job, it appears that he’s not going to exclusively listen to just the Knicks when it comes to becoming a head coach next season. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News writes that Kerr is likely to listen to all offers that come his way before entertaining the Knicks job.

Really, this seems like a negotiation tactic to get as much money as he can on his first coaching contract than anything else. If Kerr goes into coaching, there really isn’t a better fit than the Knicks and it would be foolish of Kerr to pass on it for another job.

Still, it’s a possibility to consider but it appears that Steve Kerr becoming the head coach of the New York Knicks is just one step closer to happening.

    Kerr will be a mistake for the Nicks & the Lakers. The Lakers need to bring in Byron Scott as head guy, D. Fish, K. Rambus & Kareem for the bench job…
