Steve Kerr hinted that he expects to be in discussions with the New York Knicks and Phil Jackson, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley. The Knicks have been on a coaching hunt since firing Mike Woodson and his coaching staff on Monday morning.
“I do anticipate talking with Phil Jackson at some point. When that time comes, it will come,” Kerr said. “For now, there’s really not a whole lot to talk about … It’s going to be very interesting. My name is being thrown around. I do anticipate at least being a part of the conversation and we’ll see where it all goes.”
Kerr was previously the general manager of the Phoenix Suns. During his NBA career, Steve Kerr played under Phil Jackson with the Chicago Bulls. Kerr’s big shot in game 6 of the NBA Finals was his most memorable moment as a NBA player. Kerr shot .454 from 3-point range over his career, and was known to have great basketball I.Q. Last but not least, Kerr has experience in Phil Jackson’s triangle offense, which is a great plus for him.
