Report: Knicks could hire Steve Kerr by end of week

8 Comments

The Knicks reportedly wanted to hire Steve Kerr after the first round of the NBA playoffs, and the first round is over, so what gives?

Kerr is scheduled to broadcast a game tonight – though it could be his last assignment.

Marc Berman of the New York Post:

The one-horse Knicks coaching derby should come to its conclusion this week.

Steve Kerr is scheduled to broadcast Game 1 of the second-round NBA playoff series between the Thunder and the Clippers in Oklahoma City on Monday night with longtime TNT partner Marv Albert. That could be Kerr’s last telecast, with a league source saying matters with the Knicks should progress this week.

Phil Jackson might want to press the issue a bit if he wants Kerr. Kerr is reportedly interested in the Warriors, and they reportedly like him too.

Kerr to the Knicks seems inevitable, but the longer the delay – at least until the Warriors extend Mark Jackson or hire someone else – the more uncertainty that arises.
