Knicks Get Permission to Talk to Former Coach Mike Woodson

Knicks Get Permission to Talk to Former Coach Mike Woodson

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. The Grizzlies said "a change in course was necessary to move forward and provide the team and organization its best chance at success". At the end of the day, you want to come to NY, based on my body of work there. "I'm sure the front office, they will make the right decisions and build something that can go a long way", said Porzingis, who averaged 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 48 games. I want to be back as soon as possible.

Mills and general manager Scott Perry sound as if they are open to a young coach they can mold more than someone with Woodson's veteran credentials. He was teammates at Princeton with Knicks' president Steve Mills, which made Blatt a rumored candidate for the NY before Hornacek was hired.

Fisher replaced Woodson in 2014-15 and flopped.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the team plans to interview Raptors 905 head coach Jerry Stackhouse this week.

However, they struggled through a disappointing 2013-14 campaign and Woodson was offered as a scapegoat.




Metta inked a two-year deal with the Knicks in 2013; however, the team waived the National Basketball Association veteran less than a year later after buying out his contract. He went 109-79 in two-and-a-half seasons with the franchise.

If he were to get hired, this would be Woodson's second stint with the Knicks.

"I would be insane not to, " said Woodson, who served six seasons in Atlanta.

Woodson was coach of the Knicks from 2012-2014 where he coached NY to a 54-win season and led them to their first playoff series victory in 12 years. "Somebody calls me and gives me the opportunity to talk, I'd be happy to talk".
