Knicks Add Mike Woodson To List Of Head Coach Candidates

New York Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek gestures toward an NBA official

Just days after NY terminated head coach Jeff Hornacek, Metta-formerly known as Ron Artest-hit up Twitter to express his interest in the coveted position.

Woodson was arguably their best coach since Jeff Van Gundy, who resigned in 2001.

He has worked with both Knicks president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry in the past.

"I don't want to hide the fact I'd love to be back", Woodson told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Woodson was sacked by the Knicks in 2014 after two seasons, but he isn't considered in their top tier of candidates.

The New York Knicks need to fill a coaching vacancy, and one former Knick hopes to get the call. "I'd like to finish what I started. I'm sure the front office, they will make the right decisions and build something that can go a long way", Porzingis said.


Before meeting with Mills and Perry on Saturday, Porzingis, 22, reiterated that he wants to remain in NY long term. I want to be back as soon as possible.

Shortly after his comments were published, a report emerged from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN that the Knicks have received permission from the Clippers to interview Woodson.

Among the reported candidates are Villanova's Jay Wright, former Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale and former Cavaliers coach David Blatt.

The season began with an unexpected 17-14 record, aided by surprise contributions from the likes of Enes Kanter and Jarrett Jack, two veterans who gave the team a nightly boost of energy. "You can ask Derek Fisher that".

"I was surprised when I wasn't [hired]", Vogel said, according to the New York Daily News.
