    I wonder are we going to here about being on the hook with Fiz and his assistants as much as we hear about Noah? I agree signing Noah was bad but Fiz and his assist. Phil just sign Noah not all of those bums. No wonder Fiz is good at keeping his mouth shut and singing all the way to the bank.

    BTW, if it is Thib then he would be crazy as hell to let someone pick his coaching staff.

    This isn't like the old days that Clyde always talks about when there was Red Holzman and no one else. Lakers and Clips haven't done so bad with former head coaches like Frank, TLu, Hollins, Kidd, Woody on their benches. Plenty of jobs for Thibs to fill allowing for Rose to put in one or two of his guys.

    Developing-coach .. Kidd or Mark Jackson

    Man this would be a massive step backwards on what seems to be a treadmill going in reverse in terms of decision making.

    The guy had a bunch of years off for his voice to heal and to actually learn some basketball nuance, but came back just as hoarse and equally poor if not worse (as the NBA had moved on) at coaching basketball.

    They need a thoroughly more modern approach!

    Same old Knicks. NY Daily News reporting that Jason Kidd is now the frontrunner for the Knicks head coaching job because contract negotiations with Thibodeau fell apart:

    https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/b...zsa-story.html

    Somehow everything we do turns into a mess. I know some people like Kidd, but at least go with Atkinson or Woodson if you can't get Thibodeau. Kidd will bring the circus and will not bring The Greek Freak. Only our sorry franchise could lose out on a head coach when we are literally competing with no one for his services.

    Thibodeau maybe doesnít want front office picking his assistants after all? Could this really be about money? Just awful.

    Iím just going to say this now. Jason Kidd will be a terrible hire. Weíll be doing this again in a year and a half if we hire him.

    Knicks have to meet Thibs terms, he's the reported top candidate for the Rockets job and he can wait another season while getting paid by the TWolves. Knicks probably want to give him a 4 year deal and he wants 5 to compensate him for the year he's guaranteed by the TWolves. Knicks position is we have a guy that we think is outstanding so no need to give into unrealistic demands by anyone.

    Reportedly, Dolan balking atneetioj g Samson demands. Considering heís laying Fiz too, this may be the line inn the sand.

    Unless Atkinson and Woodson are his assistants, I want no part of Kidd here

    Woody and Atkinson probably wouldnít accept asst jobs so itís going to be someone else that is going to have to be Kiddís lead asst. Thibs is probably asking for the moon in terms of compensation, Fiz got 5.5M a year, Iím thinking Thibs asking at least 8M and for 5 years guaranteed. Dolan balking and probably a deal breaker with Thibs in no hurry to take another job with the Rox job waiting and the Knicks job a pressure cooker.

    Job looks to be Kiddís in my mind. Last guy to get turned down for wanting too much money, Ty Lue and he won a championship.

    Breaking News

    Sources: Tom Thibodeau finalizing 5-year deal to be coach of New York Knicks


    The New York Knicks and Tom Thibodeau are finalizing a five-year deal to make him the franchise's next head coach, sources tell ESPN.

    Knicks president Leon Rose and agent Spencer Breecker of CAA Sports were working Saturday to complete contractual terms and a signed agreement is expected in the near future, sources said.

    Rose and executive VP William Wesley are completing a two-month search process with the candidate, Thibodeau, long expected to emerge with the job. Together, they'll be tasked with the daunting challenge of restoring a forlorn franchise to NBA relevance.

    Yes! Hell yeah! Public reaction so bad to idea of losing out on Thibs yesterday for Kidd that it forced the agreement on a 5th year? Who knows? More likely yesterdayís story about Kidd was fake news.

    Iíve wanted this for years, obviously based on this thread. Thibs can fix this team. If weíre not above 0.500 and a playoff team by year 2, Iíll bow out on these forums. Thatís how much I believe in Thibs.

    And yeah, sure, bring DRose back. Whatever Thibs needs to get this done.

    This is good news! Knicks need to be a force on defense. Tibs is the best coach on the market. Now they've got to get the personnel right.

    I wanted Atkinson but I'm OK with Thibs. Hopefully he hires Mike Miller as an assistant
