Over the last few weeks, it looked like Steve Kerr was a shoe-in to be the next head coach of the New York Knicks. Because of his relationship with Phil Jackson, several reports surfaced claiming Kerr and the Knicks were close to a deal.
However, Kerr opted to sign a five-year, $25 million deal with the Golden State Warriors, choosing a much better roster led by super shooter Stephen Curry rather than the uncertain future of Carmelo Anthony with the Knicks.
Now, Jackson is apparently towards another former player – Derek Fisher. Of course, Jackson could have to wait up to a month to give Fisher the job – he is currently a reserve point guard with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will take on the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals.
