Jeff Van Gundy is not plotting a comeback, gunning for the Knicks coaching job or even been contacted about the position, he told Mike Lupica on ESPN New York Radio.
On the rumor of him taking over as Knicks coach if/when Mike Woodson is canned: “You’re drawn into commenting on a rumor that there’s no basis of fact.”
On his plotting: “Some people think I’m behind the scenes plotting my return and Mike’s demise? I mean, my goodness.”
On the team’s current issues: “This isn’t a coaching issue … this is a roster issue.”
More on the Knicks problems: “The last problem Knicks have — the very last problem — is a coaching issue.”
