Knicks' Porzingis: Focused on rehab, not coaching search

Frank Vogel Knicks

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Knicks have added a few other names to give them a grand total of five candidates for the head coaching job: Jerry Steakhouse, coach of the Raptors G-League affiliate, the 905, former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Platt, and LA Clippers assistant coach (and former Knicks coach) Mike Woodson.

"I was surprised when I wasn't [hired]", Vogel said, according to the New York Daily News.

Last year's drama-filled offseason created concern that Kristaps Porzingis' time in NY would end before it could even truly begin. "I hope they call me". I want to be back as soon as possible. He was sacked with a 30-11 record in the middle of the 2015-16 season, immediately learning the hard way that you have no job security in Cleveland if LeBron James doesn't want you as his coach.

Now that Phil Jackson is well out of the way, and Mills has more of a voice in process of hiring the next coach alongside general manager Scott Perry, maybe the second time will be the charm with Blatt.

The 2017-18 National Basketball Association season for the New York Knicks was something of a roller coaster. "You can ask Derek Fisher that".

Former Orlando Magic head coach Frank Vogel is wasting no time in his search for a new head coaching gig, and has is eye set on the Big Apple.

However, they struggled through a disappointing 2013-14 campaign and Woodson was offered as a scapegoat. He's a defensive-minded coach, but his Knicks teams had a below-average defense every season.

He coached the Hawks for six seasons, reaching the postseason in his final three years there, winning two playoff rounds. Following stints with the Cavs, Sixers and Pistons, Woodson became the head coach of the Hawks in 2004.

"I would be insane not to, " said Woodson, who served six seasons in Atlanta.
