Next up for consideration? Spurs assistant coach Will Hardy.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
San Antonio has granted permission for assistant Will Hardy to interview for the New York Knicks coaching job, sources tell ESPN. Hardy, 32, is well-regarded within Spurs organization.

This is a notable amount of cooperation between San Antonio and New York. Last fall, Spurs president-coach Gregg Popovich sounded still upset with the Knicks for poaching Marcus Morris, who had agreed to sign with San Antonio last summer.
But that saga wasn’t Hardy’s fault. So, he gets a chance to impresses New York – though it’ll probably be difficult to leap Thibodeau.
