Kurt Rambis accepts assistant coaching gig with the Knicks


The New York Knicks hired former player Derek Fisher to be the head coach, but he had yet to find any assistants. That is until today, when the Knicks added Kurt Rambis as an assistant coach, according to an ESPN report from Ian Begley.

Begley’s report didn’t include potential numbers, but we heard what the reported numbers were earlier today.

From the New York Post:

The Knicks have made Lakers coaching candidate Kurt Rambis a four-year offer of roughly $1.2 million per year to be rookie coach Derek Fisher’s top assistant, according to an NBA source….

Rambis, a triangle guru and Lakers assistant last season, remains in the mix for the Lakers’ head-coaching vacancy and still is mulling a cross-country move to New York.

 According to Howard Beck from Bleacher Report, Rambis was the leader among the three candidates Los Angeles was considering for their vacancy.
