The Knicks reportedly hope to hire a coach this week.
Sounds as if it’ll be former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:
This is the type of update that usually precedes a report about the sides negotiating a contract (which precedes an agreement, which precedes an official hire).
The Knicks don’t need tweaking. They need a major cultural change, and Fizdale has the energy and acumen to help with that.
If this goes through as expected and he gets the job, expect him to do it with his trademark blunt honesty.
