During Thursday’s draft combine, Knicks general manager Steve Mills spoke with Scottie Pippen about the potential of joining the Knicks, likely as an assistant coach (Berman, May 15).
Pippen was non-committal about the potential of joining the Knicks:
“I haven’t talked to Phil [Jackson]. I have to wait until that time comes. Right now nothing’s out there. I’m not going to say whether I’m interested or not until it happens.”
Pippen said that he was “surprised” that Steve Kerr didn’t wind up taking the Knicks head coaching job.
