The New York Knicks have named Mike Woodson their head coach, by many people expect the front office to eventually hire someone new. Despite the fact that Woodson has not lost a game since taking over the bench, fans and reporters would like to see a high-profile run the Knicks.
Larry Brown is considered a candidate for the Knicks’ job, but if you ask him, the team has already found a good option. Brown says he does not want to put the Knicks or Woodson in an uncomfortable situation and wants the franchise to stick with him.
“No,” Brown said on the possibility of joining the Knicks. “I don’t want to put him in a bad position. I’m here for him. We talk every day. After the Portland game (Woodson’s first as Knicks head coach) I texted him as I was driving back from Louisville. I don’t want to make it uncomfortable for him or anyone else in that organization.”
So far Woodson has coached the Knicks well and the front office will likely stick with him for the rest of the season. However, don’t be shocked if Woodson is let go for a coach like Phil Jackson or Brown.
