Becky Hammon Considering Knicks Head Coaching Position

David Fizdale Knicks

Since, rumors have been circulating about who could be interested in the job, and now, CNBC is reporting that Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon is considering the job. Assistant coach Mike Miller was named interim head coach. However, he has maintained that he is more interested in becoming a front-office executive than coaching. She has been a top coaching candidate in recent years and interviewed with the Milwaukee Bucks following the ouster of Jason Kidd.

The David Fizdale era is over in NY, as the Knicks fired the head coach following a disastrous 4-18 start to the season.

Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri turned down a lucrative extension from the Raptors last summer and would be intrigued by the challenge of fixing the New York Knicks, according to Howard Beck of Bleacher Report. Unsurprisingly, Spoelstra agreed with Popovich's assessment that Fizdale wasn't given enough time to really make something happen in NY. One Carmelo Anthony trade, a Kristaps Porzingis departure and 347 losses later, the Knicks are in dire need of somebody to rite the franchise.

World Peace does have some coaching experience. Hammon would likely take care to ensure that the Knicks are prepare to make a serious commitment before inking a deal.

An issue with luring prospective coaches, as one Eastern Conference scout tells CNBC, is that a coaching job under owner Jim Dolan is considered by many in the league to be a "terrible" position.
