A couple years ago, Knicks owner James Dolan said there was no scenario Isiah Thomas would return to the Knicks.
But Dolan also said a few months ago he’d keep Phil Jackson for the duration of Jackson’s five-year contract.
With Dolan effectively firing Jackson today, could Thomas become the Knicks’ next president?
The Post also learned Liberty president Isiah Thomas would not be considered for Jackson’s successor.
It’s sad that this needs to be reported. It’s even sadder that, even if this the Knicks’ plans right now, there are no assurances Dolan holds steady.
Dumping Jackson is a reason to celebrate. But as long as Dolan owns the team, it must be a reserved celebration.
At least the Knicks’ next step won’t include Thomas. Probably.
