The Knicks apparently are moving toward hiring former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale.

They might have competition.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

This is a strong list, befitting a good job.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a 23-year-old superstar. Khris Middleton is a borderline All-Star. Eric Bledsoe is a strong starter. Tony Snell, when confident, is an ideal role player. Jabari Parker is talented.

The Bucks are ripe for a new coach to come in and look really good while helping this team reach the next level.

Will Milwaukee have its pick of candidates? New York offers a bigger market and maybe, relatedly, a higher salary. But the Bucks present an alluring basketball situation.
