“We met Friday night, had dinner, talked again [Saturday] and we’ll keep talking,” Kerr said Sunday, according to Michael Scotto.
“It’s the Knicks and it’s Phil Jackson, my coach. So I’d be crazy not to look into it.”
He added: “If it’s something that feels like the right fit, it’s something I’m going to do.”
Jackson said last week that he and Kerr share a similar philosophy. Kerr played for Jackson with the Chicago Bulls and later became the GM of the Phoenix Suns.
“We share a lot of the same philosophies,” Kerr said. “I learned a lot of my basketball from him and Tex Winter.”
Kerr appears to be Jackson’s No. 1 option to replace the fired Mike Woodson.
“If Phil wasn’t there, nobody from the Knicks would have contacted me because I don’t have contacts within the organization,” Kerr said.
