Report: Knicks to interview Kenny Smith for head-coaching job




 

The Knicks are casting a wide net in their coaching search.

It'll apparently include a familiar, though surprising, name.

ESPN:

A quality organization, the Rockets, interviewed Smith (in 2016, before hiring Mike D'Antoni). So, this isn't proof of the Knicks' oddball thinking. (There are plenty of better examples, if you wish).

Steve Kerr opened the door for former players to go straight from TV to being an NBA head coach without having any coaching experience. He's been a smash hit with the Warriors.

But Kerr was also the Suns' general manager before Golden State hired him. Smith has no front-office experience.

So, it's tough to judge Smith, whose role on television is more to entertain than inform (though he does both). He'll have to really wow in his interview to get the job.

But at least he has that opportunity.
