Sam SpiegelmanThe New York Knicks’ pursuit of Derek Fisher as their next coach is expected to “ramp up” this week, according to ESPN.
In addition, this time it’s anticipated that Phil Jackson and the team will have success landing their fish.
Sources told ESPN Monday that “things could take shape quickly in the early part of the week.”
However, team officials remain skeptical about calling any deal is a done deal since what occurred with Steve Kerr. Then, they felt Kerr to the Knicks was a “done deal.”
Per the report, the Knicks’ major fear is that Fisher decides to play another year in the league. If Fisher decides to hang up his cleats, though, the team is confident they can hire the 39-year-old to be their next head coach.
